The article doesn't really "expose" anything new. Just reiterates how the Bartons and their lawyers took Metra/C&NW for a ride in the court room.

Refusing to read or understand the court documents? Her claim was she was trapped, The jury believed her. But I guess they were all morons because they don't agree with you. Presented with all the facts in a courtroom a decision was made. But to hell with the courts. You know better!Ah yes the court documents....... The court documents were it was testified, and shown thru mock ups and reenactments that Barton could free herself from the doors if in fact she did not care about losing her violin? The court documents that show that he doctor that treated Barton at the hospital testified that Barton told him that she went back to get her violin? The court documents where it was shown that nobody, INCLUDING RACHEL disagreed with the fact that Rachel physically could have removed the strap from her shoulder before the train began to move. The court documents were Rachel, in her testimony said that not only could she physically have removed the strap from her arm at the time before the train began moving, but the fact that she DID remove the strap from her arm after the train had begain to move, and she was being dragged along the ballest on her tailbone! Your right, you should really read the court documents.
I suppose next you'll tell us that she instructed the crew not to check the doors so she could get the cash?
Oh well, back to the comments ... don't let the facts stand in the way of a good rant.
