you can claim anything...... i don't think that would be a valid defense for a contract claim. It is a valid defense for a tort claim. Their best argument is to have defenses that he breached the contract....
Ever heard of throwing **** at a wall until something sticks?
I believe this is what the judge in the Churchill case eventually used to justify giving Ward-o the high hard one.
Do you mean in contexts other than your posts?....
...and there's your new sig line.
If so, that was because old Ward had a tort claim...correct Philly?
See: NewWeasel, Rick. he disagrees.
I think Leach probably gets a good chunk of change out of them. The question, IMO, is whether they are willing to fight to the death (and likely expose some unsavory actions not only on Leach's part, but on the part of their administration and boosters), or if they pay him off a settlement. I think they'll settle.
I also bet they settle
ML is crazy enough to go Swashbuckling Pirate all the way to trial. This is going to be funny.
I do not know the details.... i may have a boring day tomorrow and can research it..... But Ward may have tried a tort claim and a contract claim..... a lawyer will try both for a settlement.... the tort has more upside potential.....
Both are fact specific related to a document (contract) that I am not privy to... so it is hard to give an educated answer...
Sovereign immunity? i know Texas has some ****ed up laws but I can t see that as being a viable defense.
I expected better insults there. You guys are slipping.
:lol: I'll try harder next time...
Water's wet. Sky is blue. Snow throws **** to see what sticks. No insult intended.
And I'm thinking it'll be for closer to $800K than $1.
Clearly he'll take it all the way. I don't think Tech will.
$800k was only the bonus he was due on 12/31. I don't know what the buyout amount was.
If he gets the bonus plus some of the buyout, that would be closer to $800k than $1, so technically what Skiddy threw at the wall stuck.... :lol:
Good point. :finger2:
There seems to be a lot of messy documentation from Tech's emails that may make a case for Leach like it did for Neuheisal, despite the fact Leach's attorney looks shlockey (is that a word).
The Faux Indian's lawsuit alleged that CU retaliated against him for exercising his First Amendment right to free speech. He did not allege a contract claim. And he did not allege a tort (based on an illegal employment discharge) since the Colorado Governmental Immunity Act would have severely restricted CU's liability (and any potential award of damages).
TT's assertion of "sovereign immunity" (on which state governmental immunity statutes are based of course) is pre-litigation smoke and mirrors which will not hold water ... as I'm sure you'll agree. :smile:
There are some unconfirmed rumors floating around that the Pirate Lord himself has dropped anchor in Boulder at the moment. I have no idea if this is true but it's out there in the twitter-verse right now.
Mac leaves Austin to lose the mNC and Hawk shows up in the 512 area code.
Filling the B12 coaching vacuum in Boulder might be the No Fat Chick Pirate.
It's an evening of musical college towns.
Is Art Briles in Lubbock tonight? Where's Gundy, Pelini, Sherman, Grandma, Stoops, Pinkle and Rhodes?
