Trespass to take drill samples? Whaaaat??? The GRZ/RML.v saga goes from bizarre to totally whacko

Just when you thought it couldn't get any weirder, it did. Here's Globe&Mail's Andy Hoffman on the contents of the Gold Reserve suit filed against Rusoro (RML.v). Note the highlighted part for the Kafka input.

$550m? LOL! Scorch my earth, baby. Gotta love this Belanger guy! My thanks to reader 'BF' for the headsup.

Rusoro Mining Ltd.'s ambitions to become a major gold producer in mineral-rich but politically challenging Venezuela hit a potential roadblock yesterday when takeover target Gold Reserve Inc. launched a $550-million lawsuit against Rusoro and its adviser Endeavour Financial International Corp.
.
The statement of claim, filed in Ontario Superior Court, alleges that Rusoro trespassed on Gold Reserve's property in Venezuela to take drill samples and accuses Endeavour of having a conflict of interest because it acted as an adviser to both companies and had access to Gold Reserve's proprietary and confidential information. None of the allegations have been proved in court. Gold Reserve wants the court to grant an injunction preventing Rusoro from proceeding with its three-shares-for-one hostile takeover offer valued at $47-million. GRZ (TSX) rose 1 cent to 74 cents; RML (TSXV) rose 2.5 cents to 28 cents.
