Good for you.
And you ascribe motives to me that are ridiculous.
I don't have to ascribe. You explicitly posted your motivations for doing nothing in this case (or advice to others to do nothing, otherwise why did you even answer my post to someone else?):
"Terry, the AG's office (at least in my state) has a squillion more important things to concern itself with than mutuel-pool shenanigans."
"It's not defeatist; it's realistic. Do you know how many times clients tell me what the law *should* do... and how many times I have to tell them that, well, yes, In A Perfect World, etc., etc.?
New York has plenty of perfectly terrible laws on the books, but there's not much I can do about them."
