BVBL Lawsuit Update

By Greg L | 24 August 2006 | Blogs | 9 Comments

I met with my attorney Monday evening to go over the interrogatories in the lawsuit Steve Chapman has filed. The questions were pretty consistent with the unusual cease and desist letter which BVBL received at the beginning of this ordeal, and will involve a little bit of work to not only answer them, but to figure out exactly what the questions really are.

I had heard from several sources that there may have been some realization by Mr. Chapman that this was a lost cause, and that there was some interest in arriving at a settlement, but apparently Mr. Chapman’s counsel never contacted my attorney and I haven’t heard any offers. So at this point it seems that this will have to go to trial. Although that will require more legal expense on my part, it’s pretty clear there will need to be a definitive answer on this question by the courts. I am absolutely confident about what that decision will ultimately be.

I don’t know when a trial will be scheduled, as there’s a lot of pre-trial hurdles that have yet to be cleared, but I expect this is going to be a VERY interesting trial to watch. It seems that there will be a witness list which will include a host of key political figures in the county, and a very extensive review of Steve Chapman’s campaign for delegate. I would expect that will draw a fair amount of media attention.

I hope to have some additional information for BVBL readers soon, and will provide additional updates when I can.

    It continues to amaze me that Chapman refuses to refute these statements and insists on challenging them in court. I suspect that he’s about to get a serious lession in the inner-working of our judicial system. Something he would have likely learned in senior government, had he taken it. Err… on second thought, I’m sure he did.

    I most certainly hope you are not entertaining a settlement Greg. This is a frivolous lawsuit brought by someone who has painted himself in a corner. If he starts dragging “key political figures” into court for this, he can most certainly kiss what little chance of a political future he might have had goodbye!

    BTW, I still think you should have counter-sued the little expletive.

    Where is Chapman? I haven’t heard about him in ages. I need my fix!

    I saw him at the PWC Convention last week. He wasn’t a delegate as far as I could tell. He looked like hell. Flip-flops, ratty jeans, natty shirt, and a baseball hat.

    I guess that means he still lives in Manassas city.

    Does he ever attend the MCGOP meetings? I understand that he’s in regular attendance at the PWCGOP meetings…I’ve seen him there myself whenever I’ve stopped by.

    Steve is usually at the Manassas GOP meetings. We actually have one on the 29th.

    As a plaintiffs’ attorney, I’d be awfully surprised if you received a “settlement offer” from Steve. His demand is contained in his complaint. Making a “settlement offer” other than that puts him in the position of negotiating against himself. Any “settlement” discussions at this stage are usually initiated by the defendant[s].

    BTW, that free legal advice you received above from those non-lawyers is worth LESS than what you paid for it.
