“We now go to Lickspittle Central, where a spokesperson says…”
Well, that’s the news from Pretendyland.
In the real world, The Oaf doesn’t come off so well. In fact… well, in addition to the reasons already posted, let’s see.
- Such a communication from “Twitter Headquarters” would have been a document that would have fallen within John Hoge’s discovery requests seeking production. The party receiving discovery requests in a lawsuit remains under a continuing duty to produce documents after the initial response is made. Does anyone here think that the Parky Party has done this and ever provided the document? Me neither. The court has already ruled that The Oaf cannot introduce any evidence at trial that should have been produced in discovery but wasn’t.
- If “Twitter Headquarters” provided such a document to Bill Schmalfeldt, on its own it would be hearsay not within any exception. It would need to be authenticated by a witness from Twitter who would be competent to do so. No such witness was named by The Oaf at any relevant time. The court will exclude witnesses who are not identified by name or by the nature of their testimony by a party in a witness list served by the pretrial deadline.
The bottom line? Well, you know already…
Yes, Bill. You are. And you will.
Have a nice bus ride, asshole.
