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.
