Readers have asked what is up with the litigious one? Not much to report on this suit. Unfortunately, Poling has had to retain an Ohio attorney. We are considering championing a defense fund. Poling was granted a motion to extend the time frame of their initial response, case management is scheduled for later in the month.
Editorial Statement – In our opinion the hypocritical nature of this lawsuit should be front and center. Over the years Hovey and her ABS preached, crowed and said they would black list those persons and groups who do not respect the rights of witnesses – primarily the right to privacy, if requested. If we were advising Poling, at the top of the list for discovery would be all electronic correspondence and a deposition of Hovey to discover the name and contact information for the alleged photographer. That person giving Hovey the rights to the photo is key, and anything less than a personal interview with this person to resolve that question is unacceptable. By filing this suit, Hovey placed that person’s want to privacy behind her desires to whatever she is trying to accomplish – money damages seem to be in the mix. Imagine that witness getting a summons to appear in Ohio, way to treat the witness. This video is fitting, but change the title to “Throw the Witness Down the Well“.
