  • Random House filed suit to silence the facts I was posting on the web.

  • The only sworn statements made under penalty of perjury are affidavits from me and my experts, nothing from RH.
  • The judge refused to consider any expert analysis.
  • Despite suing me first, Random House & Sony UNsuccessfully demanded that I pay the $310,000 in legal fees they spent to sue me.
  • Contrary to the Random House spin, I am not alleging plagiarism of general issues, but of several hundred very specific ones.

Nifong & Random House's Lawyers

Mike Nifong, the prosecutor who was disbarred for misleading the judge and defense lawyers in the Duke rape case has been disbarred. Simply stated, he lied for his own self interest.

This is not a lot different than what happened to me at the hands of the Random House lawyers.

Yes, that was a criminal case and this was a civil one. However, Random House assumed the role of prosecutor when they started the whole legal mess by suing me.

And throughout, (as pointed out by numerous, very specific examples drawn from legal filings) they misrepresented the facts, filed misleading briefs and in the process concealed information from the judge.

Should those lawyers not be subjected to the same standard of justice as Nifong?
