Subject: Defendant's response
If you're here now, you probably just Googled my name. If this story caught you off guard, there's something you should know. While I did commit the offense of harassment, the victim's version of events is a gross misrepresentation of what actually occurred. Mr. Hartley has here further distorted the truth.
Upon reconsideration this afternoon, Judge Jonas D. Legum has overturned my conviction despite continued opposition by the victim. At hearing she showed her true colors and the court was unpersuaded by her attempted manipulation. If you know me, ask me. I certainly did a bad thing, but don't shun me for how it was portrayed by this newspaper.
This is your written notice the conditions I provided to you are hereby withdrawn. You have chosen to ignore my letter, but your response was not invisible. The ground you tried digging was solid, as my integrity. Say the same to me and you've lied once more. You can expect my lawsuit in July. Get your people ready, because I will be.

THEIR OWN TRUE COLORS

You people have no explanation for the removal of my comment?
Even though it appears you have acted with personal spite, ill will, and a desire to see me come to harm?
Even though it appears to be a conscious effort to conceal or ignore anything contrary to the words of a vengeful source of highly questionable credibility?
Are you guys truly the champions of free speech, accountability, and organizational transparency, or do those things only really matter when they suit your purposes to make people look bad and generate revenue?
A CAUSE OF ACTION COMES
Eric Hartley and The Capital have been aware of their exposure for months. They have been aware of their tortiously inflicted harm, which can and has continued to accrue. They lied there was "a call for comment left with [my] attorney" then dismissed and ultimately obstructed my answer. They have known my lawsuit is coming and done nothing to avoid it. All told, they just don’t care. I envision, much like 11 years ago, it will take nothing less than a jury to change their attitudes and, hopefully, this time, culture.
