Robert Fletcher, CEO, Successfully Overcomes Damaging Allegations and Declares that Settlement is a Victory When Dealing with any Government Agency.

“Anytime a business settles litigation with a government agency with no admission of guilt and no violation of the law, it can be considered a victory,” said Robert Fletcher, the CEO of a group of companies that have been dealing with government litigation for over six years.

“Unfortunately, most consumers believe that litigation equals guilt, but that simply isn’t true.  This suit should never have been filed,” Mr. Fletcher continued. “If the litigation had any merit, they would have pushed it harder and not taken six years to deal with it.  Furthermore, the attorney who filed against us was asked to leave her job for ethical and competency issues.  Mr. Fletcher went on to say that, “settlement was the best action for our constituents as it allows us to concentrate on the future and not continue to pour money down the legal drain hole of America’s quasi-political legal process. Most importantly, we want our authors to realize that this litigation did not include our current businesses.  The suit was only directed at older companies that had a completely different business model and had already been dissolved”.

Mr. Fletcher concluded by looking to the future. “With this settlement, our family of authors and employees can rest assured that our business principles are sound and fair.  I am extremely happy for our authors, clients, and employees who have had to deal with the uncertainties of this misguided litigation for the last six years.  We have now formally put this behind us and we feel stronger than ever.  Let’s get back to business.  We have our clients’ books to publish and sell and distribute around the world.  And we would like any potential client that turned away from us because of this issue to please reconsider joining us.”

Therefore, the witch hunt perpetrated by Victoria Strauss, Ann “A.C.” Crispin, Writer Beware and the SFWA has been discredited; the The Florida Attorney General is NOT ACTIVELY collecting complaints and information.

So, the question is, will Robert Fletcher again pursue legal action against Victoria Strauss, SFWA, Writer Beware & others?

You have to go here first, (click the link) READ THIS:

Cleo Voght! Who Are you? . . . Victoria Strauss Must be Drinking Kool-Aid

Then read the comments (below); note also who the entries are from. For example, Steven Gould, Richard White, MacAllister StoneMichael Capobianco (the dying Ann “A.C.” Crispin’s Husband), Randy Dotinga, Rachael Saltzman, Brett T. Mazzoni ( a real loser), Jenna Glatzer (LOL! Jenna Glatzer . . . how dare you even mention Internet harassment!), and the Queen of the Cease & Desist Orders . . . P.n. Elrod. The best thing is that we didn’t write the post that Victoria Strauss is referring to. Victoria, Ann, Randy, Richard,  MacAllister, and Glazer . . .  we’ll just continue to keep our comments here. Have some more Kool-Aid.

They just can’t ignore The Write Agenda and when there’s nothing going on . . .  they just make up stuff.

UPDATED 05/09/13 – Protected: The “Victoria Strauss” Files . . . Yes, Here We Go! Hey TWA Members . . . This is pretty wicked … excellent job on the videos! WOW. The audio was perfect. Thank you! We love the Randy Dotinga audio! OMG! Can you say BUSTED????

Hey TWA Members . . . this is pretty wicked … excellent job on the videos! WOW. The audio was perfect. LG <<HUGS>>

Timing will be of the essence . . . Strauss & Dotinga made the case. Dotinga . . .  OMG what a dumb ass! ROTFL . . . We’ll post this at the right time. ((This was really  . . . REALLY . . .  good work!!!)

TWA12009878: “When will Strauss ever learn that she is a meaningless SOB?  This is awesome stuff! Perfect timing TWA. You guys rock! “

TWA13409998: TWA are you serious? LOL! You guys are awesome. Scalzi is a butt fuck! I’m cancelling my SFWA membership.I knew that there was more to this. Who the hell elects a President on less than 50% of the total membership?

TWA268409998: Lizzy! Are you serious? Well done! Miriam . . . this was an awesome job done by your crew. Was that really Strauss babbling? That was the best.

TWA2684882958: I’ll keep this short. TWA gets it. The SFWA is fucked up! 

TWA71433382: Why is Dotinga kissing Victoria Strauss’ ass? What’s in for him? You guys are really on something here. I had doubts but you’ve illustrated the voting patterns of the SFWA; these are very strange incidents. These are some really self-serving bitches here. TWA . . .  you nailed it. 

TWA71891275538: TWA, you warned Strauss about “karma,” . . . I’m a believer! So much irony. Crispin is dying, she previously sprained her ankle and Strauss raised the issue about karma? Oooo. . . Stauss . . . well  . . . let’s just watch. Thank you TWA!

TWA72891227538: Miriam, as you know, I’m a SFWA Member. I do appreciate the time that we spent together in NYC. This is very alarming. Shocking may be a better word.  TWA13409998 may have it right. Electing a president of an organization on less that 50% of the membership vote is a problem. So, Gould posts a “platform” and doesn’t campaign and gets elected? There’s issues here. Serious issues. TWA, keep up the good work! The new buzz word with these self-serving “weinerdogs” is “wing nuts.” Be proud. The fact that they acknowledge you proves that you are a force . . . otherwise  they would ignore you; they don’t.

TWA6145122333614: LOL, TWA you obviously struck a nerve. It’s so interesting that Victoria Strauss, Ann Crispin and Writer Beware have never commented on the Charles Petit case. He was their attorney and it was a publishing scam. I will not be renewing my SFWA membership. Thank you for sharing this.

If you are a member . . . click below. LOL Enjoy!

The Write Agenda Calls Out The ASJA (Guest Post)

The American Society of Journalists and Authors schedules its annual conference in New York City each spring.  This year, as part of its invited panel, Victoria Strauss and Richard White of Writer Beware have been invited to serve as keynote panelists.

According to the Write Agenda, these two individuals have made false reports and claims about their competitors on their blogs, while hiding the fact that their own attorney was under investigation in Illinois for years, and subsequently suspended from practicing law for defrauding the estate of John Steinbeck.

At over 200 dollars a person for each day of the session, the Write Agenda cautions people seeking to find professional contacts at the seminar to reconsider how they spend their hard-earned money on an expensive day traveling to and from Manhattan, and listening to reports that are not an accurate portrayal of the business.

The ASJA has responded to the Write Agenda, stating that the conference will continue exactly as planned.

A good journalist checks his/her facts, and does not depend completely  on sources which have a conflict of interest or which may not be honest and reliable.

In response to our posting (Remove the Writer Beware™ Panelists, Victoria Strauss & Richard C. White, From the 2013 ASJA Annual Writers Conference), Randy Dotinga, Chair, ASJA 2013, in spite of the fact that we proved that  Writer Beware™ selectively reports publishing scandals (here), proved that Victoria Strauss and Writer Beware™ never established that there was an “investigation” against American Book Publishing (here), illustrated that Victoria Strauss failed to show respect for the 2013 SFWA candidates (here), illustrated that Victoria Strauss was a non-vindicated defendant (only Wikipedia was vindicated . . . the judge left the door open to re-litigate with the remaining defendants) in the Bauer vs. Glatzer case (here), demonstrated Victoria Strauss’ propensity to use the “F-word” (here), and demonstrated how Victoria Strauss stole the First Annual Independent Blogger Award at the 2012 BEA Convention (here) had this response to our posting:
