What we generally have tried to do is get something ready and try to get permission before we file in the federal court. And get that all figured out before we file.
Now we’ve run into some obstacles in some cases and they recommended you file it in the federal court without the State Taxpayer Act Claim and then you go and get permission and you amend it.
