Well, so far so good. Yesterday I won and we go to trial on August 4, 2003. It was
a really great day. You are now famous (infamous?). The lawyer for Zinman actually
had a google search that they submitted into evidence. Amazingly it was my story from
your website printed out. I did state for the official record today that "This is not
complete with the updates, and I asked "Where is the polygraph that is a part of the story?"
The Judge was one of the most intelligent people I have ever had the pleasure of meeting.
He ripped their baseless charge that "there was a meeting of the minds" concerning their bad
faith settlement offer. The Judge made it clear that there was no proof that I had
accepted the offer, which I had turned down out of hand. Again it was a very good
day for me. The lawyer for Zinman told my new lawyer, "There will be no settlement
offer now prior to my trial." (Great!) I have said right along, "I would rather go
to trial and get nothing than have been forced to put the $330,000 dollars into my
pocket like they tried to force me to do today." He looked me in the eye and my
new lawyer said rather incredulously, "You really mean that don't you." Yes that
is a fact. I want the truth of how Zinman falsified my records with the willing
help of Dr. Arthur Foster Little lll, A.K.A. Dr. Terry D. Little which is how he signed
the official hospital medical records of mine, that they both falsified together read into
evidence at both of our trials. This is part of what we both need to gain back our lives,
and move on in this life. All victims of medical negligence need some sort of closure.
We both seek the truth to emerge, and for fair compensation for our ruined quality of life.
It is now five months to my long overdue medical malpractice trial. I look forward
to testifying, or rather only my records will testify in the trial of another
butchered patient of Leonard Zinman. The funny part is I was called by my
lawyer's office around March 3, 2003. I was told Zinman's lawyer wanted to take my
deposition for the other victim of Zinman's trial on 3/10/03. His trial is scheduled
to go one month before my own trial. Then rather than take my deposition they
served notice of their "Emergency Petition" to the Court to try to force me to take a
settlement that I had refused. My lawyer was not given notice until one day before
we had to go to Court last week. That was rather underhanded by any
definition in my opinion. I wonder what is next? Now are they going to
serve me papers to obtain the deposition they spoke about in the first
week of March 2003? I am glad I now have a lawyer really fighting for me
on my side. It is a rather refreshing change. Like I told my Dad today, "I can
hold my head up high even if we do not win at my medical malpractice trial."
It has always been about the truth of what Zinman did to me coming out. He robbed
me of kidney function, bladder function, and he caused my hearing damage and
many other permanent health woes. Then he was/is arrogant enough to believe
he could undo his negligence by merely rewriting my official medical records in his
failed attempt to hide what he did to me. I would like to see a class action
suit of the other victims' of Zinman get their day in court. One must ask how
many other people did Zinman harm, and/or falsify medical records on to hide what he did
to them? I hope Leonard Zinman enjoys reading this "update" of what he did to me
added to my on-going true story. I will send you updates as soon as they serve me to
get my deposition which should be soon I would imagine for the other victim's trial.
I am expecting to be served in the next week, or two. Let the games, and the
truth begin to leak out on what an amoral, and unethical doctor Zinman really is
come into the light of day. I fear they may now try to force you, or your ISP to
remove my story. The beauty of the Internet is that once it is released it
becomes a "public record." I do give permission for my story to be copied. I will
ask that credit be given to the website (yours) that carried it initially with a hyperlink.
Take care my friend as always,
Have a great weekend,
