Our legal advice has been critical to our process and Sidley have been crucial to our successes.
I think we should be thanking them for their service, and yes top notch legal services are not cheap.
It is most certainly something that I have no issue with the community exercising its prudence over however lets not limit ourselves in any way to engage with our counsel.

I hope those who want to always push issues to external legal advice would appreciate the need to be strategic and prudent about this. Over 500,000USD already spent on Sidley is definitely not what we like ICANN to keep spending it's resources on.
