Being constantly harassed by libelous attacks on your personal and professional reputation, to the point of litigation, will certainly take a toll on you. Speaking from experience the suit and pending judgement becomes a constant irritant, consuming too much of the time reserved for creative thought processes.
So congratulations on the outcome and the fact that the judgement is in.
Sadly though, the sweet taste and personal redemption in receiving a favorable and in your case, sizable judgement, never seems to last as long as expected.
Although the rest of us will be certainly enjoying the result for a while to come.
So when the glow of redemption starts to fade, come back from hiatus, we have more fish.
