Reposted from my Billy Wayne Carter blog.
See here, here, here, and here for background.
It’s been over a month since my last post on this topic, and several people have asked me if there are any updates. The short answer is: no.
Cantara did send a message out to her mailing list yesterday with links to my blog posts and her own summary of the situation so far, but the upshot is that she STILL doesn’t have control of her bank accounts and STILL doesn’t even know what John Gill is suing her about. That all seems odd because I would think that the lawsuit should be available as a public record, but I can only take her at her word on that.
Cantara does have a lawyer working on the case, but no concrete results to speak of yet.
UPDATE: This just in from Cantara:
Dear Comrade-in-Letters –
A small step, but a step nonetheless.
Our lawyer advised Mr. Gill’s attorney of the fact that Michael and I have been living in California since 2007 and she’s requested a copy of our lease to back this up – not a problem. (To show why we didn’t receive the Summons and Complaint at our old residence in Woodside last year.)
She was also informed that a copy of the Summons and Complaint was TAPED to the door of our mailing address at 204 E 11th Street in the East Village. Those of you who live in NYC might picture that and understand why we never received it, either.
Her letters to WAMU on our behalf have been redirected to another WAMU address. Copies of her letters going to Gill’s attorney are also being sent to this WAMU address… So it looks like we’re starting a case file there as well. Hope it doesn’t get too thick.
Once the entire batch of affidavits, document copies, etc, is complete, it’ll be sent to Gill’s lawyer, the court, and WAMU.
And AFTER THAT – we’ll probably still have to answer the original complaint. Will keep you posted.
