They would have had no incentive until now. Settlement offers are ususally made at the 11th hour. Once they had trashed their reputation, they might as well hold on to that settlement money all the way up to the trial date.

they were probably hoping that TJ wouldn't have the gall to take it this far, and probably just give up.

They did try to settle earlier on in this whole ordeal, but their offer was insulting.

I wish I could make it but I am flying to Grand Junction CO Monday morning. Good luck...I hope this cost them double or triple the amount it would have if they had simply done the right thing to begin with.

You can make it through that, you have made it this far and God willing you will win and have a new Car was well as a 2013 M5 at their expense.
