Ava called this morning. I told her that Aug. 28 was no good for a
deposition since I was not going to be in town that day. We discused
other dates and locations in LA. They are not willing to pay for airline
tickets to hold the depostion in LA, even though it would save them a
great deal of money.
It seems that the excuse they are using to put me in a videotape
deposition is that I made a post for Graham Berry reporting on Cipriano
being deposed in Hurtado. It is particularly amusing that they want to
know about my communications with Graham Berry, Robert Cipriano, Jane
Scott, Scott Meyer, and Edith Matthai (Graham's lawyer in Hurtado) but are
not concerned about communications I have had with Hurtado.
At this point, we have agreed on a depostion in LA on Sept. 15 at ten am.
I expect to be paid for going there and Ava does not expect to pay me.
Anyway, I have to file a limited protective order with the court. Talk
about an opportunity to educate the court!
PS While Ava started out sounding hard as nails, she did not reject my
offer of santuary out of hand if she decides to get out of the cult. As a
lawyer she has to know the boat is leaking faster than anyone can bail,
even if they were not getting orders to knock another hole in the hull
from the screaming (*). I think if we had kept talking, she would have
stared crying. Bet you fair odds she knows why Stacy Moxon Meyer was in
the transformer vault.
