Check out this email from paralegal and office manager Eric Deters (forwarded to me from my lawyer David Gingras): I hope you are well. I retired as an attorney this year. Although not relevant to my writing I did so for three reasons: grew tired of the bar association, I have grown to loathe the profession and because fortunately, I can. I remain the office manager and a paralegal on the 462 Dr. Durrani cases and several other bigger cases we have. When those are over I’m off to doing something else.
Sarah and her family decided it was time to drop the case because while it presents an issue you and a lawyer we planned to retain from Washington might enjoy arguing before the Supreme Court, they all want to move on.
Since the verdict, you and I agreed that we would not attempt to collect it and you would have Nik “stand down”. Until the Sixth Circuit matter we both kept that agreement. I want you to know that before my retirement, the management of the firm since, we have turned down cases all over the country against thedirty.
I have been made aware of the costs issue and the threats to sue issue towards Sarah. As a former attorney I don’t lose my knowledge. As such, I agree 100 percent with the Chris Roach email he sent to you when you made those threats.
The purpose of this letter as Sarah’s employer and former attorney is to ask you and Nik to please drop the Sarah Jones saga and move on.
Stating the obvious, you can ignore this request. Also stating the obvious, the law firm could stop ignoring all the lawyers and citizens who contact us every week asking for assistance and information. They offer money to pay lawyers by the hour and retainers to pursue claims.
You are free to claim big deal, but the truth is Nik is better off with us leaving him alone and Sarah is better off with Nik and you leaving her alone.
