    Diamond Resorts Pleased to Announce Settlement with "Timeshare Exit Attourney"

    Saw this on a Facebook page for Diamond Owners. Kinda seems like an oxymoron but I guess you can't look a gift horse in the mouth. The interesting thing to me is that Diamond is pursuing several other exit companies as well. This win should give the a solid foundation in that effort...
