  •  There is an apology now on that website (12+ / 0-)

    for all of that, which includes an apology for the sexual abuse as well.

    Link to the letter here.

    I guess they've gotten a lot of (well-deserved) flack about this already.

        Here's the entire relevant portion of the statement issued on November 13:

        In our initial response to one lawsuit, we made a terrible mistake by including a defense that was entirely inappropriate.

        We want to again apologize to Ms. Cunnane and to all victims of sexual abuse for including in our initial response to the lawsuit two defenses which have now been removed.

        We have never believed that the victims in these cases bear any responsibility for the abuse they suffered. No child is to blame for his or her own abuse. Sexual abuse is not the fault of any victim and certainly no the fault of a child victim. We are truly sorry that our filing obscured this important truth and we are deeply sorry for the pain it caused victims of sexual abuse

        Apparently, all parties have agreed to mediation to try to find a settlement.
    •  Their apology is bullshit. They knew the defense (3+ / 0-)

      had no legal merit and included it for the sole purpose of harming the victim even more and making it clear that if you file such a suit they will victimize you as viciously and brutally as possible in court.  They knew what they were doing, if they weren't the that lawyer should be suspended (and have to retake his bar exams to be reinstated) for incompetence.

      You have watched Faux News, now lose 2d10 SAN.
