Who is learned counsel?

Rob Wilson, one of my criminal defense attorneys, is set to step on in the Civil Matter but David Horan is arse-deep in criminal stuff and cannot sign him in pro hac vice right now. I am going to the ACLU soon; clearly they should have an interest in this case.

I greatly enjoyed working with them when I was with Terry Gilbert (my expert witness in this case, if necessary) in that State v. Lessin brief in Ohio, 67 Ohio St. 3d 487, 620 NE2d 72 (1993).

Was it a settlement, or just back pay, no fine? Do you have any data on similar business enterprises and what the result is? I mean, it was just that people are paid for their work, but there was no finding of wrongdoing on ATCs part by the DOL,(no fine as your link reads) just a correction. I suspect that your former company grew rather quickly, and as it grew compliance was not on the center of the screen. Young hungry companies push to suceed in a competitive environment. Putting in place the operational controls lags. In this instance, it seems the DOL appreciated this reality of business, as there was no fine, but rather a re-accounting of what people are owed and i suspect some commitment to putting in place and demonstrating the controls that would ensure this does not occur again. It appears that nothing as nefarious as you claim is associated with this component of your complaint against them - the other parts are fair game as far as my reading, but the DOL bit seems a red herring.

Your point is well-taken counselor except that they try to diminish my role in the whole affair be refusing to acknowledge that they walked me out the door as soon as I sent that email; and that I wrote the DOL letter that Michael Mae presented to the Department.

I could very well be a "but for" cause of this, and they hate it and Jaffrey et al. have to diminish my roles in it, be it a fine or restitution.

Watch the movie tonight; it's almost all straight from Depo. testimony and "Ana" is played by her twin sister, who lived through the hell of "Babylon Energy," with the rest of us.
