Summer Update With Dog
Important Details To Come in Galloway v. A.B.
Dearest Truth and Consequences Readers. Once again, I thank you for your patience while I work through the behemoth legal file of the Galloway v. A.B anti-SLAPP motion in order to present pertinent (if not scandalous) evidence, facts and insights for your reading pleasure and interest in justice.
It was my plan to post another extensive long-form piece weeks ago but after completing it, an issue arose outside my control that made it clear that this particular exposé would be best shared at a later date. Rest assured you will get this piece in full as soon as the timing is right.
I’d also like to thank everyone who wrote in with questions about the SLAPP hearing. This was next on my chopping block but shortly into answering your astute questions, my daughter fell gravely ill with a (thankfully non-COVID) virus and was hospitalized in order to manage her pain and sustenance. While I was tempted to post a personal update so as not to leave you all hanging, I instead opted to wait until I could confidently avoid the melodramatic description of the situation that I surely would have written in the heat of our distress.
So now I can cut to the wonderful spoiler: she has been discharged and is doing so well that her biggest conundrum is figuring out how she can continue to rapidly bounce back to normal while still parlaying our worry into tangible items of affection, like new clothes, electronic devices and the signing of parental consent forms for piercings at our local tattoo parlour.
I assure you that I am holding up as well as a weak-willed doting father can. I also assure you that everything I have been working on over the last six weeks will be in your inbox as soon as possible.
But hey, I know what you’re thinking. You’re thinking, “Brad, it’s August. The courts are closed but the beaches are open; you should really go on holiday!”
Well that’s a fine idea and I’ve checked with my boss, who is me, and it is indeed the case that I booked off the final week of summer to spend with my family. But I want to leave you with something before I go because I am so appreciative of your ongoing support. I’m polishing up a new post now and you’ll have it soon. Then we’ll hit the ground running in September (can you believe it’s now less than a week away?) and hopefully have a decision from Madam Justice Adair not too long into the fall.
It’s a big case and no doubt she’s putting a lot into it. Covering it is hard; ruling on it is of course even harder.
There’s lots more to come. Thanks for being a part of this journey. Wishing you and your families good health and a great finish to this topsy turvy summer. Stay tuned.
