Came down to a taxonomic classification of wild boar. IIRC, the Other side had an expert, PGC did not. There is still controversy among scientists about the issue, except in Pennsylvania where total lack of an expert caused the case to go against the PGC. You may think it is funny. When a litigant throws a case by intentional failure to obtain an expert and it affects tax payers, I take it dead serious. Cases are thrown frequently. Sometimes it is collusion to establish a favorable precedent. My very first experience as a beginning attorney was being sent to court at the last minute for a motion hearing. I was nervous to be appearing in court for the first time as a lawyer. I had only 20 minutes to prepare and I argued the legal issue and won the motion. I went back to the office and the boss called me in and told me not to feel so bad about losing. I told him I didn't, I won. He turned white as a ghost and told me the client actually wanted to lose the motion and they never thought it possible that the motion could be won, which is why I was sent out. In a strange turn of events, winning cost the client about $5,000 in damages in another similar case involving a different contractor.
