Hans replied personally to my personal communication to him which I mentioned above. I agree with Jim about there being more to this story. There is certainly a feeling of being treated unfairly on both sides of this and there does not seem to be agreement on the facts leading to the problem. What really happened when and who was responsible ought to be determined. What is reasonable and fair depends entirely on what THAT really is. And that could be so many different things. But as Hans said, it may come down to how it looks in the end more than how it was. This would not be the first time a conflict has been settled that way.
