This article is hilarious!
When I heard that the FCC allowed them to continue to investigate the system, way back when, I said any kindergarten level engineer knew it never should have gotten past the: "Hey! Maybe we could...? Naw. Never mind! It won't work." stage.

Just when you thought the LightSquared situation was over, Harbinger
Capital Partners, and other investors who backed LightSquared, has
filed a $1.9 billion (yes, billion with a "b") lawsuit against Deere
& Company, Garmin International, and Trimble Navigation, plus the
U.S. GPS Industry Council and the Coalition to Save Our GPS.
You can read more about the suit here:
Trimble has already announced that they will "vigorously" defend the suit.
Harbinger has also sued Dish Network Corp. and its chairman Charlie
Ergen for $4 billion over allegedly improper purchases of
LightSquared debt. Ergen reportedly bid over $2 billion last month to
LightSquared filed for reorganization under Chapter 11 of the U.S.
Bankruptcy Code in May 2012.
