Hello. Is anyone there?

Sidney probably had to evacuate. I just hope he's all right.

I'm thinking in this shar-log that's split into three parts for the ease of viewing it in shorter bites we should post all comments on the full version. And if the post is related to issues raised only in Parts 1, 2 or 3 we should just simply state site that in our post. Otherwise it will get confusing. Opinions?

HEY, EVERYBODY... LISTEN UP!
IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT!!

kenhyderal made a suggestion that all comments be posted on this full length comment rather than on the other thirds shar-video. Well, when I receive comments, I merely press for them to be published. I don't believe that I have any say where they are posted... I believe they are all posted automatically at the most recent entry.

I am able to post on this full entry by going directly to its comment section. However, as I said, I think that all comments I receive, irrespective of which entry comment section you make your comment, will automatically post to the latest (or uppermost) entry comment.

I'm thinking that in the future I may not post shar-videos in the video version.

Thanks for bringing attention to that issue. I had thought about it briefly, too.

Have been busy working on my WRAL-5 lawsuit. A motions hearing is less than two weeks away.

As you were.

gui, mon ami, we Raleighians lucked out with Flo initially threatening to bisect the city, several days before landfall it took a sharp dip south which spared the Oak City (or Acorn City, as I prefer) much in the way of damage. I have been inside for the past few days with steady winds, mostly moderate, and bands of rainfall which are not too bad. I'm sure that city flood-prone areas are not doing too well. My car lucked out when a huge branch snapped off early-on and nearly smashed it. I moved my car to another location after that scare.

Thanks for your concern. All's well with me... especially grateful for no power outage.

Hey, Dr. Caligari.

Thank you for the well wishes regarding Hurricane Flo. As I may have already mentioned, we Raleighians escaped the brunt of its fury when it changed course as it approached landfall and jagged southwest from the predicted track which had it bisecting the city. Fortunately no power outages and little wind damage, but some local flooding in prone areas here.

Today is sunny, with a mild zephyr and a return to heat and humidity. Was able to get out yesterday and file a Memorandum in Support of Summary Judgment in my libel lawsuit against WRAL-5 News. The hearing will be held in one week, so am busy preparing for it now.

Have a good day, wherever you are.

Dr. Caligari said...

Glad to hear you missed the brunt of the storm.

Good luck in court next week, although I stand by my prior predictions that the court will find WRAL's statements non-actionable.

Hey, Dr. Caligari.

From the interrogatories I received, I expect that WRAL-5 News will present a res judicata defense. I don't anticipate that they'll try to defend their news article based upon it being truthful or lacking malice or causing no injury. The article of July 4, 2016 was untruthful, malicious, and caused me injury (specifically exposing me to racist hate groups such as Shit Skin Plantation).

I would expect, and anticipate a summary judgment in my favor. At the least, I would expect that the defendants' Motion to Dismiss to be dismissed. We'll know in less than a week.

Dr. Caligari said...

Could you post the motion papers (yours and WRAL's) relating to your libel claim?

Hey, Dr. Caligari.

Am busy preparing for the Tuesday hearing, but I should have time to put something on the blog site. The Complaint I filed for this libel lawsuit is similar to the one filed for the first libel lawsuit. What I will post however is a Memorandum in Support of Summary Judgment which I filed September 17, 2018.

As far as the defendants go, I don't recall a Response other than an Interrogatory with four questions... which appears to be a res judicata defense. Not much there, so I won't post it.

Hopefully will have time to file it sometime tomorrow, the 20th.

Wait-- you're saying this is the second libel suit you filed against WRAL? For the same report? No wonder they're relying on res judicata-- you can't do that, as you learned in your suits against Duke.
