Please note: Not having been a WBAI board member for the last 3+ years, I am not able to post to the WBAI Local Station Board lists. So I'd appreciate it if you would post this response to those lists for me.
I just received a note from Steve Brown, who apparently sent it out widely. So, to keep you ACCURATELY informed:
Gary Null & Associates, Inc., located at 27 East 31st Street, 12th floor, in Manhattan (just off 5th Avenue), has apparently filed a complaint in federal court in New York. Please note the defendants:
- In the United States District Court
- Eastern District of New York
- Civil Action No: 1:16-CV-241
- Gary Null & Associates, Inc.,
- Pacifica Foundation, Inc, Berthold Reimers, Lydia Brazon, John Gladney Proffitt, Margy Wilkinson, Mitchell Cohen
- Thanks Gary! I am so honored to be part of such an august and fictional conspiracy! Margy must be having a good chuckle as well. (How's the weather out there in Bezerkley, Margy? As you can see, you Californians have nothing on New York for sanity! We're Number One!)
Contrary to Steve Brown -- who was apparently forwarded a defective copy of something I wrote privately (little does he realize that I marked each letter I sent out with code-words so as to be able to discover who the mole might be! Ssssh, don't tell him!) -- I have not been served, and I doubt that other defendants other than Berthold Reimers have been served yet either .... perhaps Gary wisely had second thoughts and we will not be served at all?
So for Steve to blame Lydia Brazon for not informing the PNB about his own and Gary's failure to serve her with the federal court complaint is at best premature.
Gary, please instruct your folks to be sure to serve me. I don't want to miss any part of such a constructive effort to pull Pacifica together!
I'm up for this battle royale -- I've taken plenty of Gary's non-organic Green stuff. (Gasp, I realized that it was not organic too late, various implications to the contrary. Thanks Gary for making me realize your competitor -- the mostly organic, non-sweetened Green Vibrance -- is on sale here in Brooklyn at 1/2 the cost!)
And we're off!
At a time when we should all be pitching in together to save Pacifica, the claims in Gary Null's complaint are just such utter bullshit -- not a gram of truth to them -- that I wonder what Gary's and Steve's secret aim here. I mean, Gary's sueing me personally for millions of dollars! Why is he so willing to pony up his own millions -- and his reputation -- in order to succeed in prying my torn sneakers off my feet and winning them in settlement (you could've just asked, you know!), and in uniting Pacificans from different factions, finally, ......... in opposing THEM.
Good job, boys. My seconds will call on you in the morning!
PROOF IS IN THE PUDDING...
Sorry, Mitchel, but here are the court papers.
