It was agreed that "neighbors help each other out" and, in the future, Hawthorne might need help from Jordan. Disagreement expressed early in the morning was chiefly based on worries Hawthorne might not get repaid if there was further upheaval on the Jordan board. One Hawthorne board member said JACC members file lawsuits if somebody "crosses their eyes" at somebody else. Ultimately, though, even the most concerned Hawthorne board members weren't going to leave their neighbor twisting in the wind like, well, litter.
The funds at issue are NRP monies with Hawthorne and Jordan sharing the same NRP rep. So even if there were further executive board upheaval, dozens of frivolous lawsuits, fantasyland formal complaints, plus Blackberries growing feet and running away from home to live a prodigal life on the mean hard streets, Hawthorne could still have a high degree of confidence in getting paid once the Jordan Neighborhood has money.
