what is the latest with this case?

B. Strand

None of this makes sense, nor is relevant. I was deposed for 3 days, from around 8:00am-8:00pm. Watching too much PBS tells me this is akin to torture. "My" attorneys, Garlington.... advised me to ignore rape shield laws and answer the questions. I was prepared to sacrifice my privacy to get action against a well known rapist in a position of power. I accepted embarrassing questions about my underwear, sexual experiences,... but I had no idea it would go back to when and how I lost my virginity!
I had to wonder why the rapist,
Tom Chase, wasn't deposed more than a few hrs., and never asked ANY personal questions. I answered upon my attorney's advice, until they went after my children's sexual history, medical, and other.... "MY" attorney, Maureen Lenon was nearly screaming at me to answer those questions, while I sobbed. Relevance??? I could only trust my attorneys.
Relevance became obvious the next day when they forced me to settle, and took 1/2, not 1/3 the settlement. That was over 10 yrs ago, yet seems like yesterday, especially when I can still see Mike Meloy scoffing at me as he asked his nasty questions, and still see him in the Paper's, listed as an expert in rights to privacy, first amendment rights,..... Still has his "good guy" label.
I know he is a very nasty man. Unfortunately, nasty and greed still make the man, and women, rape shield laws,... are still plowed under as men like them see fit.
He walks around PROUD! My life is over.
