Defendants have taken exception to the fact that Plaintiff called them out for not issuing any substantive response to his lead case of NAACP v. Thompson, 648 F. Supp 195 D Maryland 1986 until after Plaintiff filed his Memorandum in Opposition; they had weeks to do so as Plaintiff had issued dozens of journal entries and several court pleadings noting said case. Because their refusal to do so relegated Plaintiff to five (5) pages in response and a short time frame Plaintiff publicly accused Counsel of lazy lawyering or gamesmanship.
However that pales in comparison to the fact that GOP Counsel Gordon MacDonald and his reviewing Attorney W. Scott O'Connell both lied about the substance of Plaintiff's First Amended Complaint, not to mention the fact that none of the Defendants even responded to a reasonable, specific non-monetary Settlement Offer:
On 27 January 2011 Plaintiff revised his Settlement offer to resolve this matter with Kelly Ayotte agreeing to a videoconference to be coordinated with the New England News and Press Association, a well-respected body of professional journalists who have selected Plaintiff as a panelist for this weekend's Annual Convention. The level of disrespect in failing to even issue a "go pound sand" response is alarming and informs this Honorable Court of their ultimate contempt for the core values and principles of a Free Press in our American Society, a fact that will be addressed with Plaintiff's peers in short order, with a video documenting multitude of threats to arrest the undersigned Journalist. Such attitude besmirches the core values of our cherished legal system as well. The Settlement Offer was short, simple and quite reasonable and certainly worthy of a written response as Plaintiff informed Counsel for Defendants:
Be that as it may, when may I expect a written response to my written Settlement Offer?
