    As I read it, they are being sued by their ex admin assistant, who wants an apology published for certain things they said about her. They refuse to apologise, believing that what they said is true. Therefore the lawsuit will proceed and will seek damages and costs.

    It seems to have 2 parts:
    1. they alleged that she had
    a) hacked or otherwise modified chat room software to gain access, and
    b) revealed the identity of a whistleblower therein.
    2. they accused her of "stealing" 416.00.

    Her reply was that:
    1.
    a) as admin she already had access, therefore did nothing wrong to gain it, and
    b) did not know the identity of the whistleblower and did (therefore) not reveal it.
    2. she had received this sum from them by the usual standing order for her employment, after this employment had been terminated (i.e. due to their error, not hers); and failed to return it for a while because bank charges had reduced the balance to a point where she could not from that account; so she had to make other arrangements, which she has done and the sum has been repaid - making it hard for them to assert that she had intended permanently to deprive them of this money (an essential part of the definition of "theft").

    AIUI.

    I am not myself asserting any of those claims or commenting thereon, merely attempting to summarise public information on the topic.

    In April 2007 we were obliged to terminate the contract of our admin assistant. This parting was acrimonious.
    Seems to be at variance with

    We never charge anyone any money. No one gets paid, draws dividends or even runs an expense account.
    Something doesn't ring entirely true to me.

    -an
    The court heard Darren Upton had written a letter to Judge Sally Cahill QC saying he wasn’t “a typical inmate of prison”.

    But the judge said: “That simply demonstrates your arrogance continues. You are typical. Inmates of prison are people who are dishonest. You are a thoroughly dishonestly man motivated by your own selfish greed.”

    It is rather ironic.
    The whole site is infested with people who claim to know all the legal ins and outs of every situation. They seem quite happy to tell all and sundry that they should sue.
    I am not qualified to give the above advice!

    Step back, have a think and adjust my own own attitude from time to time
