I can't even imagine the drama her attorneys went through urging her to drop that. I wonder what changed her mind. Someone else here had it right that dropping this really was her only play. It's not the best outcome because now it just looks like she was just hitting below the belt without any merits and hoping he would cave, but it's better to get out now rather than later. What a mess BV got her into. She's out how many dollars now with this nonsense suit that is now tossed out with her blessing? She must be fuming.

PoorHoffman said...

I think Jon gave Kate some evidence on Hoffman.

I loathe this "woman" and "her" entire brand! said...

I'm sure Khate is fuming and that's why the suit is still against Robert Hoffman and the Jane and John Does- SOMEONE HAS TO PAY!

Over And Out said...

The "with prejudice" is really going to throw the sheeple. I can just imagine what they'll come up with trying to figure out what it means! I think they are still trying to figure out if Kate's lawsuit against Jon and Robert and the Does is the class action lawsuit that they are filing against the haters,

Will Milo find her way out of the pouting mode?

PatK said...

As I posted in the other thread, I hope Robert's attorney can come through for him now.

Kate looks like the fool now and so do her most outspoken twitter fans. Now I guess they'll just have to continue bashing Jon for having a girlfriend. Oh, the horror!

I'm concerned about that, too....that somehow a deal was made to absolve Jon in exchange for a way to beat up someone else.

Kinda like how the TLC deal was made. There was something weird about that, too.

localyocul said...

But but what happened to Sadly, this is where the investigation led me. I will not change course because it led to Jon, it must be done for the safety of the children."

So what does this lead to for Robert? If the claim was they conspired and she dropped claims against Jon, what does that lead to that she thinks Robert did? Stole the harddrives himself ? (Not from the trash because that's not stealing). She still doesn't allege libel does she?

Kate is a twit said...

If she dropped all the complaints against Jon, what is left for her to go after Robert and the Does for? The only thing I can think of is Invasion of Privacy. The Civil Conspiracy and Concerted Tortious Action would have to involve finding out and naming who the Does are, wouldn't it? Especially, since Jon would no longer be part of that. You can't have a conspiracy with only one person (Robert) involved, and how would they go about proving it?

Sad but true said...

What does she have against Hoffman without Jon? If there was a "conspiracy" that they both benefited from financially (according to her), JON was the one who had access, not Hoffman. At the end of the day, it's clear to me this was all a big publicity stunt to publicize her stupid cookbook and delay Hoffman's book for as long as possible. That's it.

She's so done now, it's not even funny. Who would ever hire her again after this stunt?

kids first said...

I just hope that there is not more to this than we know yet. For instance, did John agree to something if she drops the suit?

Angie said...

Robert is the last person standing in WOS's way. I hope hope hope (!) that Robert was telling the TRUTH about finding her journal in the trash.

I also hope he has a good atty.

Evidence of what, though? He says he took it from the trash? Unless Jon can show Robert altered it somehow, but did TFW allege that?

Kate is a twit said...

I wonder how ROL is going to spin this news to Kate's advantage. Is she going to be giving them a statement that she did it for her children's sake? You know she will try to spin it to make herself look good. I can hear it now-----"After much consideration, I have decided that the lawsuit I filed against Jon was detrimental to the well-being of my children, blah, blah, blah".

Anyone want to take bets?

reader said...

I am predicting the entire case will be dismissed, and probably not too long after this joint motion is granted. The case has no legs.

Tucker's Mom said...

I hope the "safety and future" of the kids is not in jeopardy, what now with Kate dropping the lawsuit.

Realitytvkids.com (Administrator) said...

For once I wish she would just be honest. Look I filed this to try to bully and intimidate Jon in the hopes that he would eventually cave in lose everything and at some point hopefully sign away his parental rights. I did not expect the royal ass kicking that IT IS NOT A TUMA gave me and as a result I ran away like a sobbing little girl who lost her teddy because at the end of the day most bullies are COWARDS. Just own it.

Somewhere In Time said...

This is really going to pi$$ off the person who wants Kate to put a nail in the coffin of her ex from hell. Majorly.

localyocul said...

When will all these motions be heard? Since Hoffman's attny piggybacked onto the first MTD I wonder if this will make it more likely the judge will just throw it out?

''I think Jon gave Kate some evidence on Hoffman.''
~~~~~~~~~~
I think that Robert has more than enough evidence against TFMJG without any ''evidence'' from Jon. I think that maybe someone is hoping that somehow WOS will skate through this mess. I think that her biggest mistake is to continue with the lawsuit against Robert, when he has CLEARLY said that he used a tiny bit of the information about her.

I'm actually happy that she refused to drop the lawsuit against Robert. She is once again proving without a doubt how stupid she really is! She will get exactly what she deserves...exposed to everyone!

Somewhere In Time said...

So what are the complaints that remain against Robert? That he conspired with whom? That he stole her journals from the garbage? If the claim remains that he ruined her reputation, will she have to prove that the words published in his book (as taken from the journals) weren't altered in any way? I can't imagine that she would want to go through deposition for that.

CarolJB said...

I just wanted to point out that the case could have been settled between Kate and Jon. The settlement would not show up in the docket report. There would just be a stipulation to dismiss with prejudice. I have settled many cases and just filed a stipulation to dismiss. However, I did receive compensation with the settlement and the terms are almost always confidential in my cases. There is no way with the docket to know if Kate voluntarily withdrew her case or just settled it and what the terms are.

Realitytvkids.com (Administrator) said...

Any decision reached pre trial is a "settlement" but it doesn't mean either one had to give up anything. It could have been as simple as Kate realizing no one is backing down here like she planned. So her attorneys phone his attorneys and drop it. If it were a formal settlement usually those terms are spelled out and I don't see any terms here. It's just an agreement among all parties to drop it. Again you often don't have to give up a darn thing to get the other side to drop it especially when it's this weak of a suit. It's really their money to spend and that's often all the motivation they need to let it go. Her suit against Robert is going to be even harder. She's a public figure and he is, like it or not, a journalist. So few of those suits ever make it past the front door. The burden is all on her. It's just a money pit now.

Somewhere In Time said...

Question...

The Daisygirl fan -- is this person really a fan, or a plant to make the sheeple look really dumb? I can't figure it out. Is she developmentally delayed, or a non-fan tweeting to make it appear that the fans aren't all that bright? I notice that she tweets to Kate that she loves her, asks if it's okay if she calls Kate on her home phone, says some of the strangest things (all professing how much she admires Kate), but I don't think that Kate has ever once acknowledged her or responded to her.

xxxxxxxx
@MissAmiaSays @Kateplusmy8 @realitytvkids What does that mean that Kate dropped the law suit against Jon

It just seem weird that if Kate has such a die-hard admiring fan, that she totally ignores her. Both the fans and the non-fans seem to ignore her, too.

Tucker's Mom said...

Count me out for the conspiracy theory that Jon sold Robert out. Tuma's case was strong and he's apparently a sharp shooter who doesn't need under the table deals.
I believe Tuma just out lawyered Kate. FINALLY!
If Tuma's case was weak, or if he appeared to be a hack, and then suddenly, inexplicably, the case is dropped with prejudice, then I'd smell a rat.
This scenario doesn't ring true to me at this point, after what we've learned.

Put me in the pool that Kate will declare that dropping the lawsuit against Jon is an act of selfless, motherly love, and for the childrens' sakes and theirs alone, she is dropping the suit.
Cue frowny face and shoulder shrug.

Admin:

If the settlement terms were confidential the settlement is never filed with the Court- just the stipulation of dismissal. Looking at all my cases on the docket people would think that all of my cases were dropped by my clients. The truth is every single case was settled with compensation for my client. I'm not saying this is true in Kate's case, though. There's no way of knowing if there was a settlement if it is confidential.

Her attorneys had no other choice but to cut and run after Tuma eviscerated them. They are probably just very relieved that Jon is not
a vindictive ogre and agreed to dismiss any potential counterclaims.

Tucker's Mom said...

Another reason that I don't buy any conspiracy that Jon bartered who knows what to get Kate to drop the suit is because of Tuma's strategy.
Tuma took a risk with what I've come to think of as a "low percentage play", thanks to what I've gleaned here.
Why do that if you're not confident?
I think Tuma's MTD were more than Hail Mary passes.

I agree. However, she posted that little declaration on her bog that the lawsuit was for the safety of her kids, and then she says that she dropped it for the well-being of her kids? She can't have it both ways.

Tess said...

Wow - very happy to see this! Forgive me for being slow, just needing to understand. The judge didn't throw out the suit. K & J agreed to drop the suit and any countersuits. Either way, the result is the same. It is wonderful that she can't file this nonsense again.
Also, I don't believe for one second that Jon threw Robert under the bus.
Best to Jon & GO Robert!

reader said...

The point of this case (not in any legal document) is to stop that book from being published. TFW is not going to join in a "motion to dismiss with prejudice" with Hoffman.
She wants her options open to keep dragging him into court and continue the delay of the publishing.
But as I imagine no answer from plaintiff was filed (due through today) the case is going to be dismissed.

Realitytvkids.com (Administrator) said...

Agree Tucker. Tuma didn't need to settle. He was in the driver's seat. If anything Kate's side was trying to find a way out of this gracefully. I realllly don't think Kate got everything she wanted out of this, nice try though. This went so inexplicably off the script Kate expected that it's laughable.

Some sheep (probably the same one that wandered here) is saying J must have given a statement that he gave the disks to Hoffman. First, if he admitted that, no way would TFW drop the suit. 2nd, that would just show that what Robert wrote were TFW's words, and what would that do? unless J admitted they were somehow altered...I think they are reaching.

In a settlement, there are sometimes "gag orders" included with the terms of the settlement, which means that no details of the settlement may be disclosed to anyone, and sometimes these orders are imposed for life.

Oh, good point, the MTD was for the whole lawsuit, not just claims against Jon, correct? So since TFW did NOT file an answer, the suit may be dropped and TFW would have to refile against RH and the Does. Do I have that right?

If I am correct, and what is now an absolutely threadbare case is dismissed, will TFW's counsel find a way to file other charges against Hoffman? Or will they stop taking her calls?

*********
I join you in that bet. I believe it was only Jon, through his attorney, who filed a motion to dismiss. Hoffman may or may not have joined in that motion. Now, what Hoffman's attorney may be considering is filing his own motion to dismiss. And how nice for him to have a template to use - the very well written motion by Jon's attorney.

I do not believe Jon offered Kate anything - information, money, etc., in return for this dismissal. What is more likely is that her attorneys knew this was a loser, and convinced Kate that it would be a costly loss to her. I am sure they are charging her by the hour. It is possible that each side agreed to pay their own legal fees and costs and simply walk away.

Shawn Tuma and his firm are formidable opponents. I believe Hoffman does have a good law firm working for him, but perhaps not quite as aggressively. Still, I am optimistic that Kate will not prevail against Hoffman either.

A fool and her kids' money are soon parted.

CarolJB said...

One way to tell if there was a settlement is if you don't hear a word from Kate or Jon. They are allowed to say the case is dismissed or settled, but that is it.

If the case was voluntarily dismissed by Kate then both parties are free to speak about the case.

Math Girl said...

Wasn't the heart of the suit the allegation that Jon hacked, gave data to Hoffman, who wrote the book (invaded her privacy). And they conspired together. If Jon didn't do anything wrong, then what's left? Hoffman conspired with himself? Hoffman hacked?

If all charges against Jon are dismissed with prejudice, won't K's attorneys have to rewrite complaint to leave out Jon, allege what Hoffman did? Or does Hoffman's lawyer have to rewrite/reinterpret it to leave out Jon before he can refute it? That seems ridiculously unfair.

It does seem without Jon, allegations against Hoffman are extremely weak. Unless allegations formerly made against Jon are now being made against Hoffman?

Layla said...

Kate assumed that Jon and Robert wouldn't have the resources to fight back, and she would win by default. She must have been stunned when Jon lined up Tuma and Tuma proceeded to rip her claims to shreds. It's possible that she decided to cut her losses and run, if Jon would agree not to sue her for filing false charges against him. She won't drop the charges against Robert, though, because that's the only tactic she has left to stall the publication of the book. She knows he is ready to republish at a moment's notice, and she knows that he has an offer to make a TV movie. That would destroy her. She has to hang on and try to figure out a way to stop him, or at least delay the inevitable.
What charges does she have against Robert now that Jon is out of the picture and there was no "conspiracy"? Is she left with that "It's all true but it invades my privacy" claim? HA!
I can't wait to see how the sheeple try to spin this.

I don't know that Kate every truly believe this case would come to fruition. The short play was file the suit and get on many more and bigger shows for the ersatz cookbook tour (that applies to both the cookbook and tour, btw).
Mission accomplished, n'est-ce pas?
The long play may not have been Jon at all. He may have been the red herring or even collateral damage. The long term goal was- is - to stop the re-release of a book that no doubt will damage her reputation profoundly.
Irretrievably even.

CarolJB said...

There would be an incentive for both parties to settle. Jon because he doesn't want the case to drag on even if he would prevail. Kate because it's a way for her to save face. She can claim the case is settled and everyone will think that Kate prevailed. I've seen plaintiffs settle for absurdly low amounts when their cases fell apart just so they could feel that they "won". If Kate states she dismissed the case then I'm inclined to believe there was no settlement. One way or another her lawyers must have had a terrible night convincing her to drop this suit against Jon.

CarolJB said...

I almost forgot. I've had cases where the settlement was that the Plaintiff could say absolutely nothing about the case- including the fact that the Plaintiff even sued the Defendant. If I was Jon this is what I would want included in my settlement agreement.

Layla said...

I wonder if Kate delayed dropping the charges until after her H&F taping. Perhaps she didn't want to have to show her face after having to own up to the fact that her lawsuit was all a lie. So, knowing that she would be dropping the lawsuit, she filed for an extension, went on the show to pretend to be the world's most amazing mother (cough, cough), then filed the inevitable paperwork when she got back.

Is it possible that, as part of the agreement to drop the charges, Jon got her to pay all of his legal fees? She drops everything, and he agrees not to sue her when she agrees to pay his lawyer and never file those false charges again. I hope that's what happened. There's no reason he should be made to pay when he didn't do anything wrong.

That's exactly what I was wondering. Maybe he conspired with the 20 or so John Does who have no names and no addresses. Will they be issued subpoenas?

CarolJB said...

Yes- he could also have a gag order so Kate couldn't tell anyone anything about the case. Settlement isn't necessarily a bad thing for Jon. This would be a good way to stop Kate once and for all. I've seen cases where the attorneys argue for sanctions against the other party for filing frivolous suits that they couldn't prove. They also request attorney fees. A settlement would end the motion for sanctions.

Wonderful news! But not surprising since we all knew she had no case against Jon. She was just betting on him not having legal representation and folding to her demands.

I hope both Jon and Shawn Tuma read here so they will know that I am congratulating them both! What a great job using the LAW to show Kate Gosselin she has to STOP trying to bully Jon now that she can no longer control him and make him do what she wants.

And to Kate (since we know you read our posts too): You continue to prove, over and over again, how you are a hateful, vengeful, and ugly person. And by filing a meritless lawsuit against Jon, who your children love so much, you just added to the long list that demonstrates just how evil and spiteful you are as a mother.

Though I am so happy for Jon tonight, I am so sad for his kids if they are with Kate now.

''Is it possible that, as part of the agreement to drop the charges, Jon got her to pay all of his legal fees?''

''Yes- he could also have a gag order so Kate couldn't tell anyone anything about the case. Settlement isn't necessarily a bad thing for Jon. This would be a good way to stop Kate once and for all.''
~~~~~~~~~~
Since is has been made very clear that Tuma is an excellent attorney, I suspect Tuma would protect his client, making sure that TFMJG paid the legal fees Jon has accumulated. I don't know if we will ever know the details, but I trust that Tuma got every concession he wanted from TFW and her attorneys!

Yes now there is another stipulation filed (not signed by judge) to give plaintiff through Nov 27th to respond to defendants' motion to dismiss.

In my mind they know this case is done and are attempting to work out something with Hoffman's attorneys.
Guessing there is no response to the previously filed motion to dismiss, my guess is they are attempting to bargain.
Its down to brass tacks, they want the book stopped. But how, and what do they have to offer Hoffman? In that case, with this case stripped bare, what do they have period?

80% or anywhere near 80% is way too much time spent in the kitchen, but I think the kitchen is Kate's refuge in a house full of children. I don't get the sense she cooks with her children, teaching them patiently.
That's her space, not a place for interacting or nurturing.

Well, is anyone shocked? I'm not! Kate made a fool of herself, and gave more ammo to the other kids at school to further tease her kids. Kate will be quiet for a while. I too think the rest of the law suite will be dropped. Hollywood won't even touch you with a ten foot pole.

Susantoyota said...

So happy for Jon. Hope TFMJG/WOS will dismiss the suit against Robert. Although it would be fun to see her try and win in court.

It's very appropriate that this dismissal comes on the McCaughey septuplet's 16th birthday. Makes me hopeful for the Gosselin kids' that their 16th birthdays will be joyous and free of the stress caused by the WOS.

Hopefully, Jon will press his advantage and get more custody time or full custody.

Patk: For Jon it will take a long time for Jon to prove himself to the IT world, that he is an honest trust worthy person again. He probably will have to almost start over again, and work twice as hard, to build up a reputation, as a IT person. No thanks to Kate, for almost ruining that. It's too bad he can't sue her for ruining his reputation.

I'm a little surprised that Kate agreed to dismiss WITH prejudice. That means she can't hold the threat of suing him again over his head. We all know that she can't stand to give up control, so it would have taken a lot to get her to agree to that. I wonder what it was? Did her lawyers tell her that the judge would dismiss and Jon could then sue her? Maybe it was an "I won't sue your lying a$$ if you agree that you'll never pull this stunt again" situation? We know Kate doesn't have the kids' best interests in mind, but Jon does, and wanted to put an end to this mess for them.

How hard would it be for Kate's lawyers to talk her into this? She would have fought it tooth and nail. Having to back down to Jon? Having to admit that sometime "no" actually means "no" for her. Having to admit that she's NOT in charge. Her poor lawyer. He deserved it, though, by getting involved in this mess.

I believe that Kate dropped this lawsuit because she is a changes person and realizes that because Jon is the father of her children, she must do what is best for the children and never talk bad or disparage their father. She realizes that she must set a good example for her children and if they CHOOSE to VISIT him, she must support that, no matter what questionable "choices" that their father may make. She will continue to do what she must "for the kids" and that includes protecting their privacy. All she does is for the children and she will continue to work hard to polish the gold and silver platters that she alone has provided for her children, because they do DESERVE them as they were born into a family of multiple multiples.

At this point, there are no Jane and John Does, if discovery has brought plaintiffs counsel to their own motion to dismiss against their main defendant, then discovery did not bring about the Does either.

I highly doubt any attorneys are willing to begin a New case against Hoffman and the Does.
I really think the ball is in Hoffman's court and all that remains are phone calls back and forth between the 2 camps.

I wonder if Tuma is advising. I hope so.

I think that's exactly what is going on with Robert, the extension is to work out the terms of their dismissal for his potion as well.

I imagine the with prejudice was a real sticking point. It could have been as simple as fighting over attorneys fees and whether that portion of the suit will be dismissed with prejudice. I have a feeling Robert wouldn't be as likely as Jon would be to roll over on attorneys fees. Robert and Jon are in the position to call the shots here and if Robert says fine don't wanna pay my fees than you'll just have to go forward with this, Kate could be stuck. What a mess she got herself into. Karma sure is painful sometimes.

Millicent said...

CarolJB said:
The truth is every single case was settled with compensation for my client.
****
Carol, I agree that we cannot know the terms of any settlement worked out between Jon and Kate in this lawsuit. However, I have seen more than one case come through our office where after discovery was conducted that showed plaintiff had an extremely weak case, that settlement was simply an agreement to dismiss the case as long as the defendant did not seek costs of suit. So it does happen, and it could have happened here. The reason I think it's more than 40% likely, is because we've read the complaint, Tuma's motion to dismiss, and the amended complaint, and further motion to dismiss.

Plaintiff's side did sloppy work, had weak arguments, and a poorly crafted complaint. Defendant's side had an extremely strong response, point by point refuting the allegations of the complaint. If the motion had been heard, I'm fairly confident it would have been granted in large part.

So plaintiff is coming from a defensive position, not a position of strength. Defense has the upper hand, from what is publicly available. I could quite easily see Tuma saying, "If your client will agree to dismiss my client with prejudice, I can probably talk him into agreeing to drop his counter suit and further, not seeking his costs of suit."

But again, you are correct in that this is not put on the record, is usually confidential, and so we'll never know for sure. But Tuma is a bulldog and I can see this scenario play out.

ROL has the story. Now we can all rest easy, knowing it must be true!

"Kate Gosselin has dropped her lawsuit against ex-husband Jon Gosselin, RadarOnline.com has confirmed.

In a sensational move on Tuesday, the former reality television mother dismissed the suit with prejudice against her husband of 10 years, barring her from bringing an action on the same claim.

Dismissal with prejudice is considered a final judgment.

But Kate, 38, did not release another defendant, Robert Hoffman, the author of Kate Gosselin: How She Fooled The World, from the lawsuit.

He is alleged to have illegally tapped and accessed Kate’s computer without her authorization."

Robert was accused of tapping and accessing Kate's computer?

I agree, it happens all the time. People can agree to just drop things without any money changing hands. You don't get to file a lawsuit and then just get bought off every time. Plus at least in my experience a judge has to approve all settlements and if something smells fishy they will say nope not doing that. Making JON pay in this whole mess seems borderline blackmail. Any good judge reading these briefs would be suspicious of a payout and rightly so. Why should Jon pay KATE when his briefs demolished hers? As in I'll make your life miserable and sue you into the ground until you pay up. I would be careful about going there if I were her. A judge could get suspicious especially given how baseless this suit is.

Like I said, she made the only play she had left. The only play any attorney would advise her to take. She had no choice here. She had to get out of this ASAP. And I think the same will happen for Robert, as that's her only play in that situation too. I think the only fight here is over attorney fees. Besides I doubt neither Jon nor Robert has much money even if she did demand a payout. And based on how we were just discussing that her Home and Family interview was one of her most VICIOUS yet against Jon, I think we know exactly how she feels about this situation. She's not happy.

Basically what they are saying is if Kate played this "beautifully" but the lawsuit ends up flushed down the drain, that Kate was just being manipulative and playing games.

I agree. Thank you for clarifying. I just meant to say that looking at my cases you would think my clients all dismissed their cases and that wasn't the case. I didn't mean that Kate was compensated for any settlement. In fact, Kate could have very well have ended up with nothing.

The only reason I think there was a settlement possibility is that Kate dismissed the case with prejudice. I have dismissed cases for my clients for various reasons, but would be reluctant to dismiss a case with prejudice without a settlement agreement. The reason is what if a reluctant witness suddenly came forth next week or new evidence was discovered? Kate would be fuming that her attorneys suggested she file the dismissal with prejudice.

Again, as pointed out by Millicent said it doesn't mean that Kate received any type of compensation even if she had a settlement agreement.

I also think that Kate's attorneys probably tried to get her to dismiss her case against Robert, but she refused to budge. She knows that Robert will publish his book the second the lawsuit is over. Kate's attorneys probably asked for the extension of time to try to talk some sense into Kate and work out the details of attorney fees as admin said. What's really ironic is that no one would have noticed the re-release of the book if she hadn't brought so much attention to it through the lawsuit.

"Safely into bed"? How can they be safe if you have dismissed the lawsuit you filed for the safety of your children?

PS I never saw a dog that didn't LOVE a car ride.

Now that ROL has the story it's official!
In 9 days we'll all find out what's happening with RH.
I' m a patient soul......
Meanwhile, the sheeple spin should be amusing, and to be fair, none of our opinions will change the outcome.

Katie Irene - what goes around comes around. Prepare yourself.

Tess said...

So basically, she will agree to dismiss her suit vs RH, and he will publish the book, or she won't and everything will come out in discovery/trial and after the ruling, he will publish his book. Pick your poison, WOS!

The rainbow fart Kate just Tweeted can be smelled along the entire Eastern sea board.
Kate. 165

Oh Tucker's, is that what stinks?

Storm said...

I guess an appearance or two on the Today show or the View will be in order to get her side of the story out there. Ugh.

SC Gal, his account is protected, so you can't see Walt's tweets--only the responses from his followers.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Empress - thanks.

Rhymes with Witch said...

Thought my first comment went into the ozone.......

The Empress Has New Clothes said...

SC Gal ~ You're welcome! Oh, and interestingly enough, Walt just opened up his account, so his timeline is now accessible. He's tweeting lots of stuff to TFW about her (and Jon's) parenting skills. Seriously scolding her. Nothing new to those of us who've been watching her unravel for a long while now, but the timing of his reappearance is very interesting.

I don't think Tuma would have been willing to let her slip away without a "with prejudice" dismissal and I bet he wouldn't pay her a dime to get it either.

I bet it was either all or nothing for them, no compromise, and NO payout. Either dismiss this whole thing and never file it ever again, or we'll see you in court. It's nice to see the other side seems to finally be calling the shots. I hope Tuma knows he's one of the first to ever tell Kate no means no.

Well, FIRST, the WOS has to be invited to appear on television, and I don't think there is much interest in her at this point. On the other hand, interviewing JON might gather more interest.

I agree. Jon and Robert are holding all the cards, and all TFMJG has is attorneys charging her by the hour (I suspect after a hefty retainer) and her stubborn stupidity.

I so hope you are wrong lol I don't want to see her saying um or like or honestly or lying how she did it for the kids.

PatK said...

I can see Walt's tweets to Kate's TL here:
https://twitter.com/search?q=kateplusmy8&src=typd&f=realtime


He's basically tweeting about how screwed up BOTH Kate and Jon are. (He's always made it known he doesn't care for either of them.)

reader said...

Admin I think you're right, it was all or nothing for Tuma. And partly because this was truly a frivolous lawsuit.The initial complaint was vague and pieced together.
As someone said awhile back, it read like Rainman's notebook; "Charlie Babbit squeezed and pulled and hurt my neck in 1988."
So true.

You know the case is a stinker when Kate's best hour so far was when her lawyer went to the wrong courthouse. #Kateplusmy8

hahahaha!

reader said...

Yes, "no means no." Not now and not ever again. Can you imagine TFW's response upon hearing that concept explained to her by her attorney?

Goodnight. Early day tomorrow.

Math Girl said...

For anyone interested, I can see walt's tweets (and just wal't tweets) at
https://twitter.com/Underwalt

I do not have a twitter account. It might not work for people who are signed in to their twitter accounts.

Math Girl said...

Oops. I refreshed screen on walt's tweets and I can't see them any more. He must have just gone private.

I can it would be something like " I just don't get it why can't we sue my ex husband? and the of course she go hides in the closet while Steve tries to get her out.

From one of BV's minions:

This  http://imgur.com/RGvuwg0  is why it’s generally not a good idea to jump to conclusions. The case was NOT dismissed with prejudice. Kate dropped the portion of her case against Jon. What is unknown at this time is whether Jon has agreed to testify against Robert in exchange for Kate dropping the case against him . . . or not. It would seem a logical move and while I “suspect” that is what has happened I do not know and that is unconfirmed at this time. At this point anything and I mean ANYTHING about the reasons she dropped her case against Jon is nothing more than pure speculation by anyone, myself included. She does not automatically owe Jon for his attorney fees, he must sue to recover them but that will depend on what kind of agreement the two have struck. However, I see the #nutterbutters have (as predicted) decided to ignore the old adage “best to keep your mouth shut rather than open it and remove all doubt.” And, as per usual, they prove that basic legal knowledge and fact checking is beyond their mediocre and extremely limited intellectual capacity.

Meagler said...

Whoot whoot! Awwww...too bad Katie Irene.

Had to pop on tonight to see if you had any update with the lawsuit today, and Admin, you didnt disappoint.

Wowza to the ones who knew how to look up the lawsuit, and break the story here on "realitytvkids"!!!

I'll be back on the 29th to see what outcomes Robert will have. Like someone up thread, I think RH wants this to go to discovery.....

getofftwitter said...

Tuckersmom: Jon was freelancing, running his own business in IT work. He did contract work. That is where the sheeple get confused, in why Jon had so many jobs over the last 4 years, they were contract work, which for people who don't understand what that is: he works for a predetermine time period, anywhere from a month to a couple of years. When contract is over, he finds new clients. Jon said he was running his own business.

I see Goody is at it defending Kate.

Underwalt just deleted all his posts on tweeter. If he didn't then I'm not seeing them. He has been hiding cause of BV & law suit.

Sleepless In Seattle said...

The case was NOT dismissed with prejudice.

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

So then this is a lie?

"Dismissal with prejudice of the claims and/or counterclaims between Plaintiff Kate

Gosselin and Defendant Jonathan K. Gosselin is appropriate pursuant to Federal Rule of Civil

Procedure 41(a) and (c)."

Now who do we believe?

getofftwitter said...

Mathgirl: it says page not found. Underwalt is gone.

PatK said...

Why would Walt tweet and then delete? Why bother at all then? smh

Sleepless In Seattle said...

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

What lawsuit?

He disappeared when he was outed by a fan who allegedly accessed his personal information illegally and he had to cancel his credit cards/bank account etc., and has been silent, saying it's in the hands of proper authorities. I doubt if it had anything to do with BV and the class action suit.

JoyinVirginia said...

Woo Hoo! New post and WHAT a post! No way in the world do I believe any money went to TFMJG. More likely she was finally convinced by attorneys of futility of her complaint. And by the way, razzle dazzle does not appear anywhere on the motion, correct? Just the local guy who didn't know which court house to go to.
Meanwhile, this morning on Good Morning America, Melissa Rycroft dove a car they were giving away to the home of the deserving winner. See what can happen if you are perky, positive, and get Tony Dovolani as a partner on DWTS and then actually do what he says. Oh, and appreciate your opportunities, and be gracious to others on the show.
