NYS Supreme Court Justice Devlin dismissed the frivolous lawsuit filed by Hamburg Central School District, and bull dogs Dr. Joan Calkins , Mr. Steve Achramovitch, Mrs. Patt (bubble over the eye) Collins, Mr. Gregory Wichlacz, Mr. Matthew ("check out my rantings on Facebook") Dils, Mr. KC Neyman, Mrs. Diane Reynolds, and Mr. T. Bagley against S. Stephenson, L. Stephenson and M. Kavanaugh.
Three years after the plaintiffs in the taper caper case filed a lawsuit against the defendants, NYS Supreme Court Justice D. Devlin dismissed the matter because, according the Buffalo News, there were no grounds on which to move forward. It is very clear HCSD and the vitriolic former and present members of the school board and district administrators file the lawsuit against the three women as acts of harassment and retaliation.
Concerned Hamburger learned the plaintiffs, who filed the lawsuit in 2012 when they were all on the dime of the Hamburg Central School District taxpayers, made little movement in the case against the three defendants. The only motion made by the HSCD and the individual plaintiffs was made two years ago. Then, the lawyer for the district, Mr. Richard Sullivan, filed a subpoena on Google in search of the identity of Concerned Hamburger and bloggers Klozman and Super. The subpoena was quashed in 2013.* And, the school district was marred by the sea of bad publicity.
It seems to Concerned Hamburger that the former members of the Hamburg School Board and Hamburg Central's objective was to annoy the defendants by dragging them through the legal wringer. The frivolous lawsuit was filed days before Sally Stephenson was seated as a school board member. The school district and the plaintiffs, riding the taxpayers coattails, were on a spending spree with the law firm Harris Beach.
Judge Devlin ruled to dismiss the case, but strangely did not award attorneys fees and damages to the defendants. According to a source, the defendants are planning an appeal in an effort to be granted attorneys fees and damages, and are considering other formal legal action against the plaintiffs. This time, Dr. J. Calkins, Mr. Achramovitch. Mrs. Collins, Mr. Dils, Mr. Wichlacz, Mrs. Reynolds, Mr. Neyman and Mr. Bagley will be on their own dime because they would not be entitled to indemnification by the district under NYS law. Our source indicated that the very content of the recording reveals the caustic nature of the plaintiffs. We were told that at one point in the recording, Mr. Wichlacz talks of stun gunning citizens who question the school board, and Mr. Dils suggests he would have been wise to bring his gun to the meeting of September 21, 2010. Perhaps both of these men and other members of the plaintiff group would be well advised to seek anger and wrath- management therapy.
Surely the hostility of the plaintiffs is easily document.
* The district did not stop seeking Concerned Hamburger's identity, Doctor Richard Edward Jetter and the present school board through attorney Andrew Freedman hired a firm called DIGITS to electronically monitor the homes of the defendants in this matter. Once again, the school district wasted taxpayer dollars on a wild goose chase. Much like the Erie County Sheriffs departments use of eavesdropping technology, the school district hired a private firm to "spy" on the defendants in their private homes. Yes, you read this correctly.
