Isn't the weakest link here just Rick with his big mouth? He was legally assessed to be a "pants shitting retard" in record time by an actual super lawyer. David Sohn spent "over 7 hours" and must have learned a few things about Rick's tact, self-control and blast radius. Also hard to miss that he's enormously fat.
I almost think he’s not the one to blame here. He’s obviously mentally ill.

The fact that Mary Foreheads placed all of the SFWA’s eggs in the Patrick S. Tomlinson vs. the First Amendment basket should be considered a crime against humanity for reckless stupidity.

What happened after she signed off on the money? Did she have any input whatsoever once the shit started or did she just sign off and wish him luck? Did she even check in periodically to see how this was progressing?

Where the fuck was their legal counsel when Quasi filed the quash in another state? Where the fuck was their CFO when the bills started to creep into 5 figures? Don’t they have a board of directors to make sure this type of shit doesn’t happen? Where the fuck were they? Did they have him sign an NDA? If the answer is yes, then why are they still entertaining this moron at their conventions?

I’m not a lawyer or a CEO but good lord this isn’t rocket science.

Their CFO is a "full time novelist." [URL]https://www.sfwa.org/about/current-officers/[/URL] [URL]https://www.sfwa.org/featured-author/nathan-lowell/[/URL]

Edit: He's held that position in the past as well: [URL]https://web.archive.org/web/20210109030658/https://www.sfwa.org/about/current-officers/[/URL] This is just a patronage network with a focus on bad writing, don't expect any sort of competence from it.

Didnt their top 3 postions in the org claimed they make $0 salary. They better hope thats the truth as well. Honestly, it sounds like it now that i see their CFO though. Holy shit what a disaster. If youre funding a 1/4 million dollar lawsuit, you should probably hire a professional. They might end up in some deep shit over all this if they dont settle.

I'm annoyed I didn't mention him in my earlier comment, but you're exactly right. We've seen Pat in court three times, and two of those times the judge told him to shut the fuck up*. He is not someone you would want to have a criminal conspiracy depend on, particularly if he's going to be deposed under oath.

What happened after she signed off on the money? Did she have any input whatsoever once the shit started or did she just sign off and wish him luck? Did she even check in periodically to see how this was progressing?
If I remember their "Grievance Committee" procedures - the ones they use to fund legal challenges, then yes, they're supposed to. Pat would have had to waive legal privilege, and their legal counsel is supposed to keep tabs on it, and I guess the other staff should poke their noses in too.

* During the LOLsuit he tried to Fatrick his way into proceedings until the judge told him to quit it and called a recess; during the Hooligans Showdown Trial he kept yapping at Big Dick Andrew until the judge said "Don't do that". He is, indeed, a pants-shitting retard, especially in court.
