It is not on Cordoba’s family who has brought a legal battle to the fisherman. Alvarenga has had many legal troubles since his return to civilization. Firstly he fell out with the lawyer assigned to him on his arrival at the hospital in Ebon.
Then he had to deal with a former media lawyer who sued him for breach of contract. Sensational news stories are worth a lot of money, and everyone wants a piece of the pie. I wonder if Alvarenga wishes he had just kept his identity secret when he washed up on that tiny beach.
