I spent a very long and intense week analyzing, researching and putting together a response to the City Attorney’s subpoena for Dr. Ken Stoller’s medical records. I submitted what I called an initial response yesterday afternoon, May 16, 2019. It was 20 pages with many, many citations to a wide variety of literature sources, and raises many of the legitimate concerns and suspicions of the community. Even though we had another week to respond, I wanted to get the ball rolling quickly, once I figured out what was going on and realized how misguided the City Attorney’s efforts were. Also, the courts will want us to have tried to work this out without judicial intervention, so by giving what I’ll call a full-throated response, I think I am advancing that process.
If the investigation isn’t resolved, I’ll release the response. My hope is that the City Attorney rethinks his position and withdraws the subpoena, and we both live to fight another day. (But I may be overly optimistic.) My reasoning for not releasing it now is that the response will create a media firestorm. (I know this because the media is already chomping-at-theibit for more information). I don’t want the media to back these guys into a corner, (not yet anyway). If we see that a court case in inevitable, you’ll see it, and more, and you’ll like it, I promise.
