Quotes

...the New Zealand Airline Pilots Association (NZAPA) told Radio New Zealand News that it does not think that Hector's sentence was harsh enough. "Sadly, I think something horrible has to happen,” NZAPA technical officer David Reynolds told the news outlet. “God forbid it ever does but, quite frankly ... People are still not getting the message that it is an extremely dangerous and reckless thing to do—pointing a laser at an aircraft.” Reynolds then noted that he didn't think the judiciary were taking the issue seriously enough."
..."It was a hard-fought trial with a tough claim construction in a case in which our firm was hired a few months ago," said Kalpana Srinivasan. "We strongly believe the Judge will address the underlying legal issues in post-verdict motions."
Reuters reported Tuesday that the deal was over.  "While we understand we did everything right, I think there's still enough issues out there that create problems for Dr. Dowd, for NSA, for my company" Alexander said
