    I need your help to continue my lawsuit against the Watchtower Society and the doctor who the Watchtower Society arranged for to give my daughter Arsenic. The WTS lawyer, HLC members and the doctor deceived Bethany and lied to her, convincing her that Arsenic would cure her. Bethany was convinced that Arsenic could cure her and was curing her. Bethany and the WTS lawyers stated in Court and in the media that the treatment was a cure for her desease ( AML Leukemia) and that Bethany was getting better. Bethany stated in her affidavit and on TV that the treatment was working, was curative and that she was looking forward to taking a trip to Disneyland and going back to school in a month.

    I sent Bethany's medical records to three specialists and they all agree that Arsenic is not a treatment for AML Leukemia and that it did not offer Bethany any chance of a cure and that with standard medical treatments, Bethany's chance of recovery would be between 30 - 50%.

    I need your help to send a strong message to the medical community. I need your help to teach the WTS a valuable lesson, that this sort of thing will not be tolerated in the future. I need you to help me with my lawsuit. The WTS has unlimited resources and I have very little resources. For over a year I have been without a lawyer. Even if I can get a lawfirm to take the case on a Contingency basis, I would need to come up with a retainer and cover the out of pocket expeses.

    I need you to send me money, otherwise I may have to cancel the lawsuit. I need you to send me money ASAP. In case you didn't know, the judge has decided that my lawsuit can go to trial. The story is in the media on an average of once a month and in the National News about once every two months. In the last month Associated Press has published the story three times and it was on CNN last week. . I thank you in advance for your help.

    Please send a cheque, draft or money order to:

    Good luck with the case, Lawrence.

    I hope you've started a press release as well, to get wider publicity regarding your need for funds.

    I will send what I can. Your cause has a following (almost everyone I know, that knows what I know) I'll put the word out.

    Have you contacted Kerry Louderback-Wood, Baylor University regarding the Tort of Misrepresentation?

    PM if you like.

    Do you have a Trust at a Bank for the Legal Fees in Bethany's Case? Let us know what Bank to send the money too. Have you a Web Page or a friend supporting you set up a web page about Bethany ’s Ordeal? The Web Page could have a Donate button and be mentioned in News Papers etc. as a place to find further information. I am sure many here would forward your Web Page and link it to their own Web Pages. Many Blessings To You In Your Fight For Justice And To All Who Have Been Abused By The Watchtower™

    More importantly, what you need is a Legal Counsel who will take on your case for a payment after the trial, appeals and conclusion.

    But therein lies the major problem in Canada and with your case unlike the USA. One is usually toast if the plantiff doesn't have the upfront legal costs - which usually run into hundreds of thousands of legal dollars - for disclosure, motions, trials, research, hearings, leave to appeals and appeals. And unfortuately in Canada there are few lawyers who are willing to work upfront for free in a case to be paid at the end.

    Fighting in the Courts in Canada is a struggle that usually bankrupts a person and thus, there are not as many suits in Canada as there are down in the United States. In a sick kinda way, the court system in canada is for the rich or for a cause that somebody with some money can support.

    My best recommendation to you .... if you have not already done so .... is send a portfolio of the case around to some of the legal firms in Alberta to see if anyone will pick up the case up front for free with payment at the end if you win. Of course you will have to analyze the new lawyer to see if they are up to the job since this is one case that should not be lost and this case is complex to say the least. No doubt you will need a firm that not only has a good trial/research Counsel but also has Counsel that knows the ins and outs of the Appeal Court system - which is a speciality all on to itself.

    I wish I could wave my magic stick and help out Lawrence. But that is the best advice I can offer right now.

    Judging by your grammar, you don't appear to be the brightest candle in the bunch, huh?

  • Scully

    Suffice it to say, scorchio, SHUNNED FATHER's identity is well known here, and his request is legitimate and the pending court case has been documented in the Canadian courts and in the press.

    Nobody is forcing anyone to make donations. Your sarcastic remarks are not appreciated.

    Thanks Scully, that was needed to be said. Best of luck Mr. Hughes and my prayers and condolences to you, you have my support.
