It may be academic since lawsuits can sometimes "cascade", but it is

Do you really, really want to run this risk? If so, I suggest we go out
with a bang by making sure we say some really important things, things
worth remembering and telling our grandkids about should we survive to
have any. I'd go to that meeting!
