200 Pages of Handwritten Gibberish

Our attorney, Daniel Gibson, filed the motion to dismiss and brief in support of motion to dismiss and motion for a gatekeeper order.  We are asking the court to prevent Deric from filing further legal actions against us unless represented by an attorney and getting permission from the court, and Deric did not disappoint in his responsive pleadings.  If you can call them “responsive”.  What he submitted was 200 pages of handwritten gibberish, except for…

Sociopaths Don’t Have Social Boundaries

Public Statement Regarding Litigation

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: We believe that the real goal of this lawsuit is to discover the identity of anonymous posters so they, and future commentators on this site will be intimidated and discouraged from voicing their opinions. This tactic has a name. Strategic Lawsuits Against Public Participation (SLAPP) are a common tool used to silence and intimidate those exercising their right to free speech. We believe that this case is a textbook example of a…
