Unhappy Phase I 2.5L Head Gasket Failure Question

Does anyone have pictures of the Phase 1, 2.5L engine? Also, the internet is full of reports where there were premature failures of head gaskets on this engine. I have tried to work with Subaru on a premature failure and they refused. A couple of years have passed and I am still not happy with what happened. There are a number of references to potential lawsuits for design defect on the internet. Is anyone aware of a a lawsuit being filed on the Phase 1 (even small claims would be fine) and what happened? My mechanic says there was a design defect. Do those in the forum have information on the design defect and instances where Subaru has actually stepped up to the plate on the Phase I 2.5L head gasket problem?

I loved Subarus up until this car and how Subaru handled this. Help appreciated.
