“There's not too many different courses of action but there is so many different pieces under each challenge.” — @JakeHigherEdLaw [0:10:40]

“In my mind, the main players have already filed their complaints.” — @JakeHigherEdLaw [0:12:18] 

“I think that the department is going to wait to respond for as long as possible, so that they don't show their hand.” — @JakeHigherEdLaw [0:12:40]

“I think that there is a strong possibility that we are going to see the enforcement date, on August the 14th, not actually be the date of enforcement.” — @JakeHigherEdLaw [0:15:16]
