***<<(2) The class-action lawsuit for the product preannouncement and then stock drop. As I understand, there hasn't been a resolution yet.... can't this have a serious impact on earnings?>>

I seriously doubt this will affect Iomega in a serious, long term manner, even if Iomega loses (which I still doubt, although there are people out there who disagree).***

FWIW, Iomega's annual statement said that it did not expect the class action to materially affect the company's operations. (unlike the Nomai litigation).

These statements are generally fairly cautious, so I think that the latter view, that the class action will not materially affect IOM, is probably the most considered opinion.

Then again, you never know. . .
