Here is the Register Star piece on my conflict with the town.
You know how in China after they execute you they send a bill to your family for the bullet? That's what the Register Star is doing in today's article.
The town spent $100K to harass me and now they are blaming me for the expense. Outrageous.
My fault the town spent the money? Only if you are retarded.
Wow, it's the worst article they could have written. This is so stupid its hard to know where to begin.
The legal fees TO DATE are for process in TOWN HALL that the government had complete control over.
The money was paid to Whiteman, Osterman and Hanna, not to Burke, Scolamiero, Mortati & Hurd.
Whiteman, Osterman and Hanna has not responded to ANY LAWSUIT.
Burke, Scolamiero, Mortati & Hurd has responded to a lawsuit but they ARE PAID BY THE INSURANCE POLICY.
Is the Register Star awake?
To what law firm and in what venue? How can you screw something that fundamental up accidentally?
