Robert files Answer to Kate's lawsuit

Robert's attorney, Martin Garbus
Author Robert Hoffman has hired legendary First Amendment attorney Martin Garbus to represent him. His Answer was filed yesterday.

Garbus is asserting the defenses of statute of limitations, failure to state a cause of action, and first amendment protections under opinion, factual statements and matters of public concern. Garbus has defended Nelson Mandela, Cesar Chavez, Robert Redford, Michael Moore, and numerous major First Amendment cases including the famous Ashton v. Kentucky case in 1966, now in every Constitutional Law textbook.

Here is his answer, courtesy of Jon's attorney Shawn Tuma:

Razzmatazz is in Las Vegas? Now why does that make me laugh?
Anyone think ol' Marty Singer is doing the happy dance of relief to not be her attorney of record?

And poor stupid Ms. Goody, tweeting about this being the worst example of what JG had done to hurt the mother of his children. To use a Kate phrase, ummm, or ummm, this is just a little backwards, don't you think? Let's flip it back to the list, the long list, of all KG has done to hurt the father of her children. There, the universe is in order once again.

And yes, someone in the law offices of Razzmatazz, Esq is going have the onerous task of explaining this to the woman who has to tweet help for a washing machine error message. Not a post-it note large enough I think.

Admin, is this sufficient? It looks like line after line of "I don't know nuttin' about whatever she is sayin'."

You know, the psychology of all this is mesmerizing to me. Her frame of mind that focuses so much rage on Jon. Since she failed to control him completely as she had assumed she would and could, she now assumes he must be controlling HER? She fantasizes that he is in secret control of every disappointment in her day to day life. That every person who objects to her socially unacceptable behavior only does so because Jon spurs them on? Man, I would love to delve into her upbringing and her life long relationships with her parents.

As a friend of mine said a few weeks ago: "Yep, Jon sends me a dollar every time I post something negative about Kate. I'll be buying a yacht by next week." ;-)

This is getting so obnoxious. KATE sued Jon. SHE sued him! What is he supposed to do, lay down and die? For goodness sake, if someone comes after you guns blazing with some high powered attorney suing the pants off you threatening to get you for every last cent you ever have, you have every right to fight. He was minding his own business working in a restaurant and taking care of his kids with no T.V. and internet in the woods for heaven sake. Talk about kicking a puppy. The way they view this is so ass-backwards. He fought back this time, that's what she gets.

You don't get to leave the door open, then get all pissed off when a swarm of bats fly in, bite you and give you rabies.

HIs style appears to be deny deny deny SEE YOU IN COURT. That's definitely a TRIAL LAWYER strategy and what I would expect from him.

Shawn, the "professor" is more cerebral, let's talk this out logically on paper first and you'll see why this is a tad ridiculous, your honor.

I like both their styles, but they're different.

Paula said...

There is also another lawyer listed for Jon: Richard L. Orwig. Do the locals know anything about this lawyer?

This is just all so fascinating! Better than any TLC "reality" show.

Kate, nor her sheeple, never believed her actions would come full circle back to her.

Paragraph three states Hoffman lives in Reading PA. I assume the whiteout part has his address. Did the defective detective give Razzy the info?

Realitytvkids.com (Administrator) said...

By the way I guess it didn't occur to TFW and her croonies to ask to seal this case as confidential?

Jane said...

I'd love to see this go to trial, although I don't like the thought that Jon, Robert or the kids will suffer financially. If I'm understanding this, precedent setting law could be made and that's both important and fascinating. Although I don't think any of us knew this back in the early days of this blog when the Gosselin saga was beginning to unfold (well, maybe Admin did!) but not only has this become a friendly, interesting, snarky, politely argumentative place to gather, but we're also getting a bit of a legal education. Really, how cool is that?!

Realitytvkids.com (Administrator) said...

Jane no I never saw it coming either. :)

It just occurred to me, there is a big crowd on the internet who loves following big court cases. I wonder if this will interest them and we might get some of those.

Shawn Tuma did his level best to get this thrown out of court to save Jon a lot of aggravation and money. Garbus is more like, "Bring it on, baby". Now that Garbus has thrown down the gauntlet, I'll bet Shawn feels the same way. It's not every day you get to try a case with a legend. This is going to be epic.

Ex Nurse said...

Haven't read this, but want to respond to why I said that RH's story is discredited:

Here is the glaring inconsistency in RH's story. Here is the timeline from the motion:

On June 22, 2009, Kate filed for divorce. After Kate filed for divorce, Jonathan moved out of the family home and into an apartment above the garage of the family home (the “Apartment”); Jonathan left the Dell Computer in the family home for continued use by his children. Jonathan was still permitted access to the family home during this time. On or about April 2010, Jonathan observed the hard drive of the Dell Computer was failing so he performed a backup of it and stored the data on DVD disks. Jonathan created two copies of the DVDs, one for himself and one for Kate. These final backup DVDs included family pictures, business contracts, and other information. The backup DVDs were labeled and dated for archiving purposes. 
Once the divorce was final, Jonathan was required to move from the Apartment; Kate continued living in the family home. When Jonathan moved from the Apartment, he left Kate’s copy of the backup DVDs in the Apartment in a box along with other items he believed Kate would want. He informed Kate that the DVDs were in the box. The following day Kate called Jonathan and asked if he would be returning for any other items left in the Apartment and he responded that he was not and she could discard the items as she saw fit. The children told Jonathan that Kate (and a friend of hers) threw away in the trash everything left behind in the Apartment. Jonathan has not wrongfully access any computer, online accounts, or telephone belonging to Kate—it is far more plausible that Kate herself threw out the DVDs in the tras

Here is where RH's  version is, IMO, discredited. 

According to the motion, Jon moved into the apartment when the divorce was filed in June 2009. He moved out when the divorce was finalized in December 2009. When was the dark and stormy night? If he was helping Jon move out, it was 4 months before the disks were created.

I tend to believe the timeline on the legal document. I don't think that it matters at this point, since Jon seems to have the rights to the computer. But, I'm not just making stuff up--his story stinks.

What is this? Serious question. Is this paranoia? It really sounds like paranoid, delusional thinking. I fear for those kids with this kind of possible mental break going on.

Here's a guy waiting tables getting ice cream with his kids holding baby deers. But he's part of some massive elaborate conspiracy to bring Kate down when really he's just worried about groceries for the weekend for the kids. The thing is, she IS on a mission to bring Jon down so now she's just flipped the tables and thinks Jon is too.

To anyone with any rational thought at all, that's just silliness.

Tucker's Mom said...

I wonder if Kate's history with Sylvia LaFair helped to compel these expert lawyers to represent J+R. LaFair WON her case against Kate and just couldn't keep up financially and perhaps, emotionally when Kate dug her heels in and filed an appeal.
Kate's got more money and more hate that fuels her for the long run. LaFair made the right call, imo, because it's not worth it. It's just not.
LaFair should have received her 10K, but she chose to MOVE ON.
LaFair would rather be happy than right, while Kate always, always choses being right over being happy.
Maybe these high-powered attorneys will be what it takes to get Kate to back down. I hope it is. For the sake of the kids, I hope Kate drops her lawsuit.
I know, I know, a snowball's chance in hell, right? But, from what I've read here, Robert's lawyer is threatening to collect fees, costs and damages from Kate. That might be just the ticket-- hit her where it matters, which is, of course, money.
"You can never have enough money".

FINALLY. It drives me nuts Radar keeps saying that. No, how many times does it have to be explained? A copyright complaint was filed with Amazon. It is Amazon's policy when such claims are filed with them to pull the book until they get word the complaint is resolved. Then they will happily return the book to the shelf. It does not matter if your complaint is the most bogus thing ever, the book is pulled. Strict policy.

Amazon does not make judgement calls about whether something is illegal. That is for the courts. Amazon is a company, not a courtroom.

Ex-Nurse -- Although Robert's account and the document SEEM to contradict each other, they aren't mutually exclusive. Jon continued to stay at the McMansion, in the garage apartment, during his custody weekends, even though he was no longer officially "living" there. Perhaps the "dark and stormy night" occurred after TFMJG decided to bar Jon from setting foot on the property for any reason.

It seems to me that Kate has 'screwed the pooch' either way. If she goes ahead with the lawsuit then the discovery process will bury her. If she drops the lawsuit the book will bury her. It's a no win situation for her. What part of this doesn't she understand??

Laying down, handing over your wallet and bank account, forfeiting your home, taking the shirt off your back and placing your wrists out in front of you saying "cuff me and take me away to the slammer", is really, truly, NOT a choice for Jon.

Curious, am I the only person posting who likes reading about the doings of the local court every week? I still get newspaper from my hometown so I can see who went to court about what and what sentence they got. All court proceedings are public record except in certain cases.
So, to me, this is a fascinating saga. I am recalling all the commotion about Anna Nicole Smith and the ancient husbands will and feud with the oldest son and the appeal of one court decision went to Supreme Court and how after both of them died the court case lived on and on and on.
TFMJG has created something that is much bigger than she or her PR rep or Discovery Network attorneys or purse boy can control. And it is all public record.
Should have listened to Laverne and Shirley.
Btw, I disliked TFMJG after observing her behavior on the tlc show. I REALLY disliked TFMJG after watching her abuse of Saint Tony of the Ballroom and her blatant waste of a wonderful opportunity on DWTS. Jon and Robert did not make me dislike her or post on the interwebs that I don't like her. TFMJG did that all on her own.
If TFMJG does read here, I sincerely hope she sees a mental health professional who can help her. At the very least she will need support to cope as this case proceeds. Everything will be public record at some point, and that may be quite uncomfortable for her.

When everything comes out in the wash, and if it is found that there is no libel or defamation in the book and that everything printed there was from Kate's own journals, e-mails, whatever...what will be the sheeple's response?

Ex Nurse (23)
"According to the motion, Jon moved into the apartment when the divorce was filed in June 2009. He moved out when the divorce was finalized in December 2009. When was the dark and stormy night? If he was helping Jon move out, it was 4 months before the disks were created."

Not ALL disks were created around April 2010. In the document presented by Tuma, it is clearly written that "Jonathan regularly backed up the hard drive of the Dell Computer and the backups were saved to CD ROM or DVD disks. The backups included .pst files containing Personal Folders belonging to Jonathan Gosselin and Kate Gosselin which were stored in the Microsoft Outlook email program under the following directory: C:/Documents and Settings/outlook."

So I assume that there are two sets of discs: those that Jon made on a regular basis, as described in the above paragraph. And "the FINAL back-ups", (as they are named in the court document) containing mostly family pictures and contracts. And that it's the first set, the regular back-ups copies, that were left behind on that dark and stormy night.

I'm not a Jon inconditionnal, but really, I don't find anything fishy in his version of the facts.

I have a question could part of TFW's lawsuit (e.g., against Jon) be dismissed and the other half (e.g., against Robert) go forward or is

Also, have folks noticed ROL's inconsistency regarding what was allegedly stolen or taken from the trash? Depending on the story,
it's a hard drive, disks or paper.

Also, I agree with those who stated that TFW believed/believes in a giant conspiracy wherein Jon and Robert were posting on RWA. No
evidence of that so far.

LeeLee said...

Dot (28)

Totally agree. She was planning to expose J and R as low-life bullies who conspired to defame a poor, defenseless mom of 8. She intended for the whole thing to be public and to not only sink them financially, but to so completely discredit them that if the book ever sees the light of day, no body would believe a word of it. I've always thought that the second purpose to the lawsuit was her last ditch effort to either stop the book, or have the mainstream view it as the rantings of some mom-haters.
If the media begins to cover the lawsuit now, they will have to take J and R's sides more seriously, just given the caliber of their representation. Jon may have been an Ed Hardy loving skirt chaser, and Robert does give off dumpster-diving, hate-stalker vibes at times, but their very excellent lawyers, likely working pro bono, gives real meat to their version of the story. Loving it.

Millicent said...

Ex Nurse:

I do not keep track of exact dates or months when things happened, but as I recall, there was a period of time after Jon moved out of the apartment above the garage, where he and Kate would take turns being in the house with the kids. (Remember that strange event when it was Jon's custodial time in the house and Kate comes to the gate, wanting in, and the police were called?)

So although he is technically moved out, perhaps he still had possessions that were in the apartment above the garage. When it was decided to no longer time share the home, could be when Robert helped him move some of his remaining stuff?

In any event, I don't think that particular detail will matter in this lawsuit, or not matter a great deal. The main thrust of the arguments against the lawsuit are that she waited too long to file this complaint, that she can't prove up her allegations under the particular fraud statute, and in Robert's case - that he is allowed to express an opinion, etc. Jon had legal access to the computer, Jon's version is that he made two sets of back up disks when the hard drive began to fail, that he left one for Kate, which she apparently then threw out with other of his possessions.

Hoffman does reference that police were called to the scene and a report was filed. So on some date, that event occurred. To me, it seems likely that Hoffman may have been regularly checking the trash left curbside, and probably was very vigilant during the divorce and after the police incident, and got those disks exactly the way he said he did - by digging in the trash.

That is the main defense for him. He did not creep into the home and steal them. He found them in the trash, on the public street. If he embellished the story of how this came to be, it is embarrassing to have to admit that in court. However, if the main detail is that he got them legally by digging in her trash, then the other details tend to fall by the wayside.

Millicent said...

localyocul said... 26

LeeLee said...

ExNurse (23)

I may be mistaken about this, and I don't have time right now to double check, but I recall Robert giving a date in April 2010 (post divorce) for the dark and stormy night. I seem to remember him giving the date, because there was a police report to back him up. Jon nor Robert said he was helping him move out inititally, but returning to collect final items left behind. If I am not mistaken, then the two stories may still not be identical, but they are on the same time frame, at least. Is this what you meant by inconsistency?

Now that Robert's lawyer has answered on his behalf, I feel sure we will get to read How She Fooled the World. Much as I hope KK will be assessed with damages, I fear the children will be the most damaged both emotionaly and financially.

Admin., please correct me if I'm wrong, but with Robert's attorney denying so much regarding TFW's lawsuit, will TFW's lawyer be required to present more proof regarding her events leading up to the lawsuit and not Robert's? She's really stepped into it this time and she doesn't have TLC's backing and unless she can solicit another attorney that may be interested in her suit, she's most likely paying a premium for attorney fees at this point. I know you explained that the burden of proof leans on her, but when an attorney just denies almost everything regarding a lawsuit, then what happens? These two motions for Jon and Robert are so different in their context, I just have to wonder if one is looking for a trial and the other wants the suit to be dismissed.

This in a nutshell is proof enough, for me anyways, that the discrepancies don't matter one lick. It's such a minor detail to focus on.

I wondered about this also and would love to know if Kate could be sued for damaging Jon and Robert. After all, Jon did say it was almost impossible for him to get work.

I'm thinking she may withdraw the case and use the kids as her excuse. That she's afraid all the publicity Jon and Robert have brought to the case will upset them. Of course, only Kate would think there's logic in that.

Kate has used and hid behind her kids; poor mother of 8 doing it all by herself. BS! Both of these lawsuits are going after Kate for her actions. She has no where to hide. Finally and thank heaven for that. The curtain is being pulled back, the children are not (largely) involved, she did it for publicity and to destroy RH and Jon. And it all back fired. Big time. Oh, she is getting the publicity but the type she wasn't expecting.

I too believe this could be a precedent setting case because it exposes what happens on a reality TV show that involves children. The drama doesn't necessarily end when the filming is over. It continues as the Former Star continues to try to get back into the limelight at all costs.

I could never have imagined the twists and turns this saga has taken. It has morphed from a mere reality show to something bigger; child labor laws being reviewed and tighted in PA, TV executives power over the principles possibly being exposed, long term affects of reality TV on children. This was not a show about "chlidren playing in front of the camera". It has become much much more.

I'm grateful for this site so I can stay informed of the happennings. Its enough to make a person's head spin.

Personally know the facility administrator and he knows my medical needs and I am doing so much better. He used to be my RN at the old place. He was 24 there and they promoted him to FA in another town. To be 24 and get that job? Super Amazing.

This new post is super fantastic, mindblowing and kate's wrath. You reap what you sow, kate.

Isn't it funny that Jon had only bad lawyers, the only ones that he could afford,or when he went to court without attorney representation. And kate all those years she had TLC pit bull elite lawyers and the high priced Laverne and Shirley in LA.

Now, the soap opera has flip flopped. kate now has the Razzamatazz lawyer who was in Vegas when the ANSWER hit the fan!

Robert has a new post! It is hilarious! Hint: It is a video of a classic crooner!

fidosmommy said...

Leelee, I'm not going to argue about the gist of your comment because I agree with your point.

However, in Jon's post divorce days I really think he wore the Ed Hardy shirts because he thought he was going to get work with that Christian
A. guy. I don't think he wore them for any other reason. He so much as said so in one of his interviews. Was it People? I don't recall.

As far as skirt chasing goes, I'm sure there are many ways to define
what was going on there. Both Deanna Hummel (?) and Jon said it was nothing more than a friendship, and since then he's dated Hailey, Ellen and Liz. Who else? Kate Major for a very brief time before he saw the light there. So, 3 fairly long relationships, one very short one - if it was even a relationship at all - and one mutually friends-only friendship since he and TFW said goodbye to their own relationship.
I don't understand the persistent claims that Jon was a womanizer.

I believe that the reason TFMJG didn't ask for her lawsuit to ''seal this case as confidential'' is that she thought she was going to roll over him again just as she did when they divorced.

In her delusional narcissistic mind, she is RIGHT, and she wanted the public to see how awful Jon and Robert were to her. I really think that she thought that she would not only 'expose' Jon and Robert, but get Jon's parental rights taken away, and prevent Robert's book from ever being seen again. And she wanted every word of their ruin to be public!

~~~~~~~~~
No matter what ROL and/or TFMJG say, in Robert's book he clearly said that he found not only discs, but lots of paper stuff. Remember that he had a copy of her purchase of the fertility stuff from Canada? Robert said he had it all spread out on a table at his house, and took photos of all of it.

To me, that 'sounds like' TFW when she is in a rage...grab things and throw them in the trash w/o even looking at or thinking about what she is doing. We have seen her do that very thing on more than one episode!

Blue Moon said...

TFW put out the statement on her website that she is moving forward with her lawsuit. How is she going to explain it if she withdraws it? That she feels it's in the best interest of the children not to proceed? It would be the only thing she could come up with. Of course, she'll be a laughingstock because nobody, except for a few sheeple, would ever believe it, especially considering the timing with the announcement of the defendants' attorneys. A withdrawal would only serve to show that she's scared s##tless and she'd never admit that.

Kate has to stop "rearranging the deck chairs" and let what's going to happen, happen.

She's either going to slither away like the snake-narc she is or there's going to be a huuuuge mental episode/breakdown. But you cannot back down from a narcissist hell bent on blood and revenge. There would be no end to it unless you S.T.O.P her. I hope this is finally the conclusion, the exit, the END to her control of Jon. She will never ever ever respond to any therapy so there is absolutely NO reason to make any other attempts than going full throttle. He's been left with NO OTHER CHOICE. The light at the end of the tunnel is just over the horizon for him.

I don't understand the persistent claims that Jon was a womanizer.
*****
Yes, me either. I think most posters here agree that Kate was essentially done with her marriage to Jon long before they initiated action divorce proceedings. We have heard tell of a contract she alleged presented to Jon, where they would continue with a public facade of being married, but that allowed him to discreetly date others if he wished. That she wanted nothing more to do with him, except to continue filming and bringing in that TLC money. That she had no interest in marriage counseling. That Jon actually tried to save the marriage.

Since finding his equilibrium after the divorce, he's shown that he prefers to be in a stable monogamous relationship. That appears to be what makes him happiest - not dating a different woman each month.

So I too am confused at the womanizer label for Jon. I just don't see it.

Millicent said...

Also, if she drops this suit, does Robert then have the freedom to sell his book again?
****
As I understand it, the reason Amazon withdrew his book is because TLC or some division of TLC had indicated there were possible copyright issues. If Hoffman has edited his book to the point it satisfies those concerns, then I think the objections would be gone and he could put it back up on Amazon. It was never withdrawn because of anything Kate said or did.

They'll deflect and keep harping on the "Kate was so wonderful that she relieved Jon of child support" thing. They won't address the caliber of representation, but instead bash Jon for hiring an expensive lawyer when he refuses to pay tuition or child support.

It's scary when you can think like a sheeple! ;-)

_________________________________________

Okay - best one so far, imo.

Ex-Nurse, if you actually read all documentation and take it in context, there is nothing that "stinks" here. The evidence just doesn't support your constant "Jon and Robert are bad" postings

**********

I agree!

Mr. Garbus did good by denying and leaving Kate & Co. to their proofs. If Kate withdraws or the MTD is granted it better be with prejudice or Kate will never stop.

Ugh at ROL saying Jon dragged the kids into this. This all falls on Kate and only Kate. I hope Robert and Jon are awarded damages, although Jon didn't request any type of relief. That doesn't surprise me though. Jon does not seem like that type of guy to me, if he were their divorce proceedings would have been much different. I don't know how he keeps his cool. Wonder if any other lawsuits will stem from this.

I hope this lawsuit continues. Maybe it will finally put Kate in her place and this all can stop for good.

Now would probably be a good time for a welfare check on the kids and for the state to review prior complaints of abuse against her.

If Jon, Robert or the attorneys happen to read here, to Jon and Robert I am so thankful you have excellent counsel to represent you. To Mr. Tuma and Mr. Garbus, I highly respect both of you. Thank you so much for coming forward and representing the good guys.

TLC stinks said...

So, if you just respond to a lawsuit by denying everything, does that mean that the plaintiff must present all their evidence to a judge for him to decide to dismiss the charges? By just denying everything, is that a way to keep your cards close when the lawsuit goes to trial? Wow. I wonder what the attorneys' strategy is? Kate is cruisin' for a bruisin' if this goes to trial. Just think of all the dirt!!!!!!!!!!!!!! LOL. She is such an idiot this time around when it comes to attorneys. She has done this for publicity but now the big boys are going after her.

I wrote those descriptions of Jon and Robert sarcastically, to mirror some people's view of them, not my own. I often forget that sarcasm doesn't always translate to the written word. Maybe we need a special font for snark. ;-)
The last time anyone cared about Jon, that's what he was known for, and is often the only thing mentioned about him today. As for Robert, the only thing anyone knows about him (besides us) is he hates Kate and dug through her trash. That's all I meant.

IF we were talking about anyone other than TFMJG, I would agree with you. However, since we are discussing TFMJG, I believe that the only way to stop her from continuing on and on and on is for the lawsuit to continue and come to a conclusion. Hopefully the conclusion would somehow silence TFW, at least till all the children are 18, with HUGE monetary fines if she breathes even a hint of a word publicly about either Robert or Jon!

IF it were possible for TFW to bury the hatchet, Jon would have done it years ago. One person can't bury the hatchet...it takes two.

Since she failed to control him completely as she had assumed she would and could, she now assumes he must be controlling HER? She fantasizes that he is in secret control of every disappointment in her day to day life. That every person who objects to her socially unacceptable behavior only does so because Jon spurs them on? Man, I would love to delve into her upbringing and her life long relationships with her parents.

&&&

What is this? Serious question. Is this paranoia? It really sounds like paranoid, delusional thinking. I fear for those kids with this kind of possible mental break going on.

Here's a guy waiting tables getting ice cream with his kids holding baby deers. But he's part of some massive elaborate conspiracy to bring Kate down when really he's just worried about groceries for the weekend for the kids. The thing is, she IS on a mission to bring Jon down so now she's just flipped the tables and thinks Jon is too.

To anyone with any rational thought at all, that's just silliness
&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&

In the last post, I suggested several times that Jon find a good forensic psychologist who can start seeing the kids in order to assess the damage done by living with TFMJG and to write a report for the court with a view to making a custody bid. Aren't there divorced dad groups out there that could hook him up with someone who might also be willing to work pro-bono? I'm also going to agree that he needs to ask the court for a forensic review of the children's monies--that they still have what they previously earned and to make sure that TFMJG does not use their money for this stupid lawsuit. It's obvious that TFMJG's name is going to be around for a long time . . . in textbooks used in college psychology classes, law classes, entertainment law, etc. and in bills re: minors working in TV, case law re: frivolous claims and who knows what else? Probably not what she envisioned all those years ago.

Jon has momentum now--he needs to go for the trifecta.

She would have to find a very comfortable chair.

We (as in the people on this blog) can usually call her next move, but this is a tough one. Will she go ahead with this if it isn't dismissed or withdraw? I'm sitting on the fence right now.

Not ALL disks were created around April 2010. 
_________
The paragraphs in the motion that follow your quote seem very specific that the disks that are addressed in the lawsuit were created on 04/10/2010. The opening paragraph, IMO, was to state that it was a matter of routine for Jon to back up the hard drive. 

I don't think that it will matter--it is clear that there is a solid basis for Jon's rights to the disks. It isn't a crime to lie online, but it does speak to RH's credibility. I think he was covering up Jon's personal involvement, and covering his own ass legally.

Bitchy Pants --I agree--the date that the Ice Queen banished the poor farm boy from the royal palace is not a public record. I am moving on from this...please pass the popcorn and rumspringa!

Anonymous said...

I feel the need to address this issue because it keeps coming up and people are saying Roberts and Jon's stories contradict.
Jon lived at the house until April 28, 2010. That is the supposed dark and stormy night. The divorce was finalized in December 2009, but Jon lived at the house during his custody weeks with the kids because there was a custody suit, which was not settled until the spring. Remember Kate's crying fits during DWTS? Jon officially moved out April 28, 2010. Therefore, those discs would have been made and then left in the apartment when he left at the end of the month.

There is NO discrepancy between their stories. Robert is 100% accurate and Jon's account further indicates this. Kate is claiming this illegal information was obtained in October 2009. That is easily disproved. Also, any computer forensics person could tell you when those discs were burned. I'll bet Jon has his copy at home and Robert can produce the copy labeled KATE!

I wonder if she thinks that if she lost, that she could appeal and they would drop it. And that they would say she didn't have to pay.

Like in Mrs. Lafair's lawsuit. kate knew she had to pay that bill! She refused, pushing it on Jon. Then Mrs. Lafair took her to court and won! kate had to pay. She refused. Then Mrs. Lafair said, it is not worth it.

kate got away with over 10,000 worth of free therapy. Well, kate, you reap what you sow, by at least 10 fold. That is over 100K now.

I remember when you moved from etown to the McMansion that you owed 1800 dollars for water or some kind of utility bill. You refused to pay it. You called and harassed them for weeks and finally they reduced it to 1100.

You have taken advantage of everyone, your children, your husband, your friends, drs., the volunteers, the church you went to, the churches your fleeced, the nannys, your family, your inlaws and more sadly used Jon's father as your personal ATM.

How sad is that? very sad.

Ellasmum said...

Well finally Jon has the upper hand in one of their many legal issues. He has always been the underdog going into court but not this time. No TLC backing for Kate. I really hope she is sweating!

I read her latest craptastic bog last night and what really stands out to me is she has 8 kids and 2 1/2 months of summer and all she can list that she misses are swims, grilling and lie ins! and I'm pretty sure that's about all they did.

No trips to the beach, carnivals, visiting relatives, camps, play dates, museums? Because even though I felt I didn't do enough for my 7 year old daughter over the summer (I work 40 hours a week) if I were to write that same blog I could list these activities. I could also add trips to our community pool where she could play with her friends, we are very mediocre and we don't have our own a pool.

She purchased two fishes almost a month ago and makes a whole blog post about it. Life must be very exciting for those children NOT

I googled Jon Gosselin and there is one article on "Celebrity's Dirty Laundry" that makes me sick! They are actually blaming Jon and stating that Jon has now made it so she has to sue her own children!! Are people totally incapable of reading the motion to dismiss. When Kate filed this lawsuit, were they concerned about the kids? So Jon states the truth and he is slammed as a horrible dad because now Kate is forced to sue her kids....what?!? The article actually stated that Jon stated that he left copies of a flash drive (where do they get this crap from) for his kids and they threw it in the trash!! Ummmm, where was that EVER STATED!! This is totally disgusting trash tabloid reporting at its finest. How hard is it to understand the actual document. I don't often think this but a retraction should be reported because of the slander and ridiculously absurd statements about the children. I am livid!!!

My iPad froze...to finish...how can someone be chastised for defending themselves against a lawsuit? Jon's name is forever tarnished in the court of public opinion. He will never be seen as anything but a whoring, cheating horrible dad and that could not be further from the truth. Kate was very much responsible for that image! She is a bitch.

Anyway, about her cookbook, what constitutes plagiarism? Here's what I know. Katherine, her chef, and container labels are where some of her recipes are from. Her Fettucchini Alfredo is from a yogurt lid, photographed and posted on her website a while ago. Her recipe for sauerkraut and pork chops and chicken pot pie are both dishes that katherine made for the family and I read katherines email about how to reheat the dishes in Roberts book. She also put that American flag cake recipe in, but called it a white chocolate cake. Is that how she gets around the plagiarism? Change an ingredient, add an ingredient or cook it in a crock pot instead of actually cook it?

The more recipes I go through, the more I find the sources elsewhere. Lastly, some are totally inedible, proportions are totally off and apparently NO ONE edited the book. It's a mish-mash hodgepodge book.

FYI - if you go to amazon and go down to the discussion boards, under "why?", you will find 2 of my reviews of her book. You can easily match up my names!

JoyinVirginia said...

Rhymes with witch, I agree with you, the only way TFMJG will bury the hatchet willingly is in Jon. Ms LaFair did counseling and we see how well that worked.
I also agree that I hope someone is checking on the children, and that some of them will be able to live with their father full time.
Only five more years before the older children will be old enough to bring suit for an accounting of their rightful earnings, or to ask TLC why they were not given basic rights during filming.

boo said...

It's near impossible to have a court record in a civil case in federal court sealed. The only time I have seen anything sealed is if a brief or exhibit contains trade secret or proprietary information. Even then, only the particular document gets sealed, never the whole file. Court proceedings, except for some family court matters, are intended to be public.

I guess it's just not easy for me to understand how Kate can't (or won't) see around the corner and get a good glimpse of what's about to come.
I agree about this being a good time to ask for a professional to assess how the kids are really doing. We know it's not unicorn farts, as Kate would have us believe.

We joined a community pool too and love it. Having a pool at home for the G kids is great too, but it's not a substitute for socializing, and it's certainly not the sole agenda for an entire summer.
I think early on, Kate allowed the children to be responsible for each other's socialization. It put the burden on them, and not on her to nurture their friendships outside of the family. It's like, "oh well, they're never alone, so I don't need anyone else's stinky kids coming over, and don't need to be a taxi service".
I think Kate really began circling the wagons around the brood when their show took off.
First off, the kids are over-scheduled with filming as it is. Then, there's wanting to shroud production in secrecy and script the kids' responses to inquires about the show.
"We don't talk about that", is what Kate instructed them to say.
OK. If their life is the show, and the show is their life, they can't even speak about it?

Auntie, #superfunlawsuit, perfect!!
Also agree with you Paula #79, about the skirt chasing, to me he wasn't chasing skirts, not at all. But he was finally able to be a normal man, and breathe clean air the way he wanted to.
I am not worried about the future of the 8 when it comes to financially taking care of them. There are Kevin and Jody, plus Beth Carson and her hubby, no one would leave the 8 destitute. Jon is skilled in his field, there is no way the kids would not be properly taken care of. They don't need expensive things, all they need are the basics, like what we provide our children with, plus lots and lots of love and cuddles.
Can you just imagine the ratings if this trial was televised? It would be crazy! Whenever I go to read anything about the Gosselin's, I make sure to add to my comments both the website here, and also Robert's website at gosselinbook, as so many people are now more interested than ever. I am pretty sure that Robert reads here often, and so will Shawn Tuma. They are the best places to read the truth. Maybe even Robert's Lawyer will read them as well. Can't get any better for documentation of things that have gone down. I just kind of wish that Jon had internet, so he could read here to get our support. Learning so much about the law here, even though Canadian laws are likely very different. But no matter what the County is, lying and cheating are pretty universal.

Wowser said...

Well....hmmmm...things are definitely getting interesting. I think it's a hoot that TFW's motives have always been to annihilate Robert and Jon and she was so freakin' confident (aka narcissistic) that she was convinced that this lawsuit would publicly prove that he is a snake, she is the perfect yet bullied doing it all on her own mother of 8 count em' 8 kids and that she would win and Robert's book would be buried and then she could go on a world tour proving to everyone that she needs and deserves to stay on tv.

Instead, all she has done is bring more light to Robert's book...and now that these attorneys are in the picture, if this gets the publicity I think it will, all it's going to do is make MORE people want to read it because it will be proven and public knowledge that she was and is an abusive, greedy, money hungry, conniving, stealing (from the church) biotch!

Well Jon...you are a Christian....and it DOES say "do unto others as they would do unto you". I guess TFW didn't think you would actually do it!! Lol....careful TFW what you do unto others lest they do it to you! Go Jon!

~~~~~~~~~~
Ally, I agree that so far, Jon's name has been tarnished, BUT that is because TFMJG and the mighty network, with the help of ROL have controlled the information about Jon. Most people don't know as much as we do. Most people haven't read Robert's book with TFMJG's detailing her horrific abuse of her toddlers.

I read on one board a comment that was having a hissy fit over Jon, because he was mad that TFW wouldn't let him use the kids in his own reality show! I didn't even try to correct it.

However, that was then...this is now. The high profile attorneys for Jon and Robert are now in control. The more information that is exposed, the more people will turn against TFMJG, and realize that Jon and his children are her victims.

I am NO fan of Kate Gosselin but I am also against what some try to do to the sheep.

I was listening to Good Morning America this morning while I was getting ready for work and they had a segment on Jon. I didn't get to really hear it, but I thought if people were interested, it's probably available online

I found this clip, although the article is dated yesterday, the video might be from today. They basically recapped what Jon said on his ET interview, but also had a clip of Jon's boss. At the end, the consensus of the GMA panel was "Good for him. He's working".

These hastags are hilarious. can we compile a list of them somewhere?

prairiemary said...

Yes, Tucker's Mom, Nancy Grace would have a coronary! I remember how she was so mean discussing Jon, and wonder if, when the entire truth is finally out, will she ever apologise?
Has anyone heard from Al or Polly about these latest happenings?

Here's the video of GMA about Jon.http://abcnews.go.com/GMA/video/jon-kate-star-jon-gosselin-now-waiting-tables-20316624
At the end all the panel says
"Good for him"
"Exactly"
"He's working"
"Good for him"
The ball is in his court and his humble job is making him look way better than TFW who still tries to pretend she's a StAHHHHH....

That was hard to watch. I wouldn't last the two minutes of that experiment, even if it was someone else's baby. Thanks for sharing though; it really drives home the immediate effects of having a cold, detached and heartless mother. It's heartbreaking to imagine a child going through that day after day. It is also very relevant here, as TFW was filmed ignoring her kids or was angry at them in so much of the JandK+8 footage. No wonder they leap into the arms of anyone who enters the house. Also, seeing that baby's attempts to desperately get mom's attention back mirrors, in my mind, why some of the G8 go so overboard in trying to please TFW. So, so sad.

And what is going to happen when she is doing her rounds on T.V, radio and in person at book signings, with the jumbo-size pink elephant in the room? How can Katie Couric and other well known news people just ignore all of this? TFW has no shame what-so-ever! If it was me, I would curl up in a ball, and would not want to show my face anywhere!
And for those who say that this will damage the 8, I think that they have been damaged already, by their mother.

Rhymes with Witch said...

TFW doesn't know which way to go. Such dilemmas at this stage in her life. Wonder if she's learned not to poke that bear, or will there be
more poking and prodding in the years to come? 158

Just my opinion, but I think she is hell bent on going forward (no never means no).

If she loses, I don't think it will stop her. I do think she'll have even more difficulty finding legal representation and may rely more on "legal eagles" like bullyville going forward.

This is a woman on a mission, however misguided.

Can you just imagine the ratings if this trial was televised? It would be crazy!

I think that it is becoming more and more obvious that Jon is a nice guy that enjoys people. I liked that he said his job was fun...he gets to talk to people, and they sort of 'know' him. I've never met Jon, but I am positive that I would have a good time talking and laughing with him!

Can you even imagine Nancy Grace's face as she read how TFMJG toilet trained her toddlers. How she beat the child because he wasn't toilet trained after five days? Talk about Nancy's head exploding!

Tucker's Mom said...

How can Katie Couric and other well known news people just ignore all of this?
*******
Hmmm.... pre-taping the Katie show JUST before Jon's and Robert's motions were filed is interesting timing, n'est-ce pas?

The image of Kate that will always haunt me was the interview they did after the sextuplets were born. Her eyes were dead and she spoke in a monotone voice. She said that she spent a lot of time crying and they weren't tears of joy. It gave me the chills. I could probably find it somewhere on the net but it disturbed me so much I really don't want to see it again.

------------

IIRC Kate is supposed to do a media blitz next week on the 24th ... so are you saying she has already met with Katie Couric and filmed the segment? Has it aired yet?

Because now with Jon being on ET and mentioning not only Robert's book but that he can't talk about the lawsuit, I can't see the subject NOT coming up even if Kate only wants to promote her cookbook. To ignore it at this point will only looks like Kate is hiding something.

Last but not least, I have an issue with the media who say that Jon has hit rock bottom because he is waiting tables -- is the media saying that anyone who has a job waiting tables has hit rock bottom? If so that is unfair to so many people.

FTR I agree with GMA -- at least Jon is *working* in order to support himself and his children and anyone who has a job - any job - should have the credit that they deserve.

JoyinVirginia said...

Anyone new reading here might wonder about some of the terms.
TFW = The Former Wife
TFMJG = The Former Mrs. Jon Gosselin
Ms Kreider = Katie Irene Kreider = TFW

prairiemary said...

Yes, Tucker's Mom, Couric's show was pre-taped, but does that now mean that nothing currently in the news can be added to it? And if Couric is somehow not wanting to go ahead with what was taped to be on her show, can the network just skip it, and not air it? I mean that things have really changed since that taping. I wonder if this will impact anything on her publicity tour.

prairiemary said...

Anyone think that if Robert's new book is published and if he is getting so much publicity, that he will have his own Book Signing Tour? Oh, I would SO love it if it did happen that way!
Sorry for hogging comments today, that's how you know I am having a bed-ridden day. Time for a nap:)

@Kateplusmy8 I have absolutely no idea what to wear to these shows!!! Ahh

Kate is facing what most likely is one of the worst predicaments of her life, and Paige is stressing over what to wear when she meets her hero. Oh, to be young again, when you can't sleep because you have to choose between the Little Black Dress or dark denims and a suede jacket!

PatK said...

Remember how Kate blamed what she was going through (the divorce) on her horrible DWTS appearance?

Now, when the crookbook sales fall flat and her media blitz is a bust, will she blame it on the stress from the lawsuit, Jon's MTD and Robert's Answer?

And when the shakedown of the Khaters falls flat, what will she blame THAT on?

I'm going to sit back, grab some more popcorn and laugh, laugh, laugh.
