Nothing. Unlike M, we preserved all evidence. By we I mean me. The computer used to send the terminating email to him and the actual email. The letter we sent terminating Ma’s employment and the digital file saving a draft of this letter.
M provided none of this. We provided all of this. If you are guilty of something or telling a lie, you don’t preserve evidence as we did. I presume you would do what M did, which is destroy it. That’s what M did even after his attorney told us not to. Even after he was told not to. We did not. He did. And we subjected this evidence to a forensic examination.
We provided my computer for forensic examination, to Steve Williams, a forensic expert we hired to evaluate the email sent to Max. Steve Williams concluded that my email was sent to Max on October 2, 2003 at 11:56 am in the morning. He also concluded a draft of the termination letter was created on October 1, 2003. You can take a look at the forensic report here williams_exit_time_final_report001036.
M also hired a forensic expert. His expert also confirmed that the email terminating M was sent on October 2, 2003.
The email was sent on October 2, 2003 a full three weeks before M filed his false complaint with the ODJ.
But in addition to the email and letter evidence, three people testified on our behalf that M had been terminated weeks before his complaint. Weeks before.
So now we have added email evidence, letter evidence and the testimony of three employees (and yes I was one of those) in contrast to M’s testimony. Sandra Ware did not testify for him. No body did.
And yet Bill Crow set all of this additional evidence aside to find in favor of M. How did Linda Marshall know he would set aside all of this independently confirmed evidence? She knew M was lying. How did she know she would win?
A quote worth remembering…”Most forms of private vice and public evil are kindled and sustained by lies. Acts of adultery and other personal betrayals, financial fraud, government corruption—even murder and genocide—generally require an additional moral defect: a willingness to lie.”
