I wouldn't expect anything anytime soon. Lawyers, complaints, and basically a complete unwillingness on the party of Bitcoinica to communicate or return the funds is what I forsee for the forseeable future.
The higher the exchange rate climbs, the more people who are likely taking legal actions, thus likely decreasing everyone's chances of seeing any funds returned.
just my 2 satoshis.
I sense the "shakaru" syndrome at work here. Leave them alone ...
Don't call them scammers and you will sure get your money back !
Just like shakaru did !
