From the Paper:

"Pascal and her software development team insisted that the changes could not be made in such a short period of time, especially because of the holiday season. Pascal also pointed out that Don was fully aware of the nature of the video game as she had been present at the initial product planning meetings. We are at a stalemate. Our Software Engineering and Product Development Team does not want to sacrifice their Christmas holidays; a few members of the software development team are going out of town and will not be persuaded to work instead. The team insists that they need until mid-January at the latest to finish the required changes. YES insists that they will not pay the remainder of their balance owed because of the conflict."
