In May, 2008 the District chair offered to meet with LWRA Directors. We agreed, subject to certain conditions. First, that the meeting be held "without prejudice" -- in other words, that what was said at the meeting could not be used in later actions. Second, that both sides left their lawyers at home. Certain senior staff members were also invited to sit in.
Being barred from this meeting must have grated on Royston's nerves. So he whipped up his own version of history to prime the participants. He was so proud of it he even faxed a copy to our lawyer a few days after the meeting. Even the cover letter is revisionist -- claiming we initiated the meeting!
