In case you don’t read the comments that often, there’s a fantastic Star Wars conversation happening in “And That Happened.” I’m preoccupied with the OSHA violations on the Death Star, Lar worries about whether C-3PO was unfair to R2 when he left him after the escape pod crash-landed, and everyone wants to know whether or not the Jawas were required to give Uncle Owen a replacement mech-droid after R5-D4’s motivator went kaplooie. We’re dealing with a sh*t here.
And yes, I’m well aware of the wrongful death suit that was brought on behalf of the civilian contractors on the unfinished Death Star. I cannot say anything about it substantively at this time, as it has always been my policy not to comment on pending litigation. Suffice it to say, however, that I have pledged to return just compensation on behalf of the families of the victims, and will not rest until the so-called “New Republic” ceases the rather Imperial stance of hiding behind sovereign immunity and makes these families whole.
