LAID BARE: More Records Expose Illegal Meetings That Defendants Bullock, Nowlin, Marx Lied to Courts About

Postby Brian Essi » Mon Oct 30, 2017 5:55 am

Defendants Bullock, Nowlin and Marx fought for almost 2 years to conceal inculpatory records regarding their illegal behavior in relation to open meetings.

Here is what our city lawyer from Thompson Hine wrote CCF and LHA lawyers and Butler the day of illegal City Council meetings that Bullock, Nowlin and Marx participated in:

At 12/6/15 10:37 AM

“At 4 p.m. today, the City team will commence meetings with City Council members.”

At 12/6/15 11:14 PM

“We had productive series of briefings with City Council and the Mayor that stretched through the afternoon and evening.”

The Heat Remains On!

Less than 2 weeks later, an open meetings lawsuit was filed against Defendants Bullock, Marx, and Nowlin known as Skindell v. Madigan.

Defendants Bullock, Marx, Nowlin all denied that they had participated secret illegal meetings--an appeal to the Ohio Supreme Court is still pending.

The Records below, were not released by City Hall until August 16, 2017.

Note:
1. Jones Day and McDonald Hopkins attorneys knew about the clandestine meetings (see lawyers copied on the emails below).
2. Jones Day lawyers (representing CCF) and McDonald Hopkins lawyers (representing LHA) showed up with Kevin Butler in Judge Russo’s chambers in Skindell v, Madigan on Friday December 18, 2015 arguing against open meetings violations.
3. Butler was involved at every level.

These documents substantiate other issues as well.

They vindicate the complaints filed by former Congressman Dennis Kucinich with the Federal Trade Commission related to unfair competition and antitrust issues.

They vindicate the motion of the plaintiffs in the taxpayers lawsuit to amend their complaint to add the bidding improprieties to their case.

When read in context with other documents posted by Mr. Essi and me, we see three separate parties each represented by separate counsel engaged in discussions related to the exclusion of other competitors.

We can see that LHA knows that it has the legal right to compete with CFF from Mr. Gorton's October 2015 document where he presents the case for LHA entering into an agreement with Metro Health System. In its initial letter to Subsidium, we see that both LHA and the City understanding that LHA is only leasing the the City's hospital assets.

Clearly, these parties understand that they are competitors in some manner with one another. Their lawyers also understand this and we can see in the posted emails (above) that these competitors are working on a contract that they understand will have the likely affect of excluding other competitors from having access to the City's hospital assets.

AND, these other competitors have been successfully excluded from having access to the City's hospital assets.

I'd love to see the antitrust analyses done by the various law firms on these issues.

So, Bullock, Nowlin and Marx, et al. gave CCF and LHA notice of City Council meetings, but not the public.

And Bullock, Nowlin and Marx, et al use a bogus "Joint Defense Agreement" to conceal their illegal activities for nearly 2 years after the CCF and LHA insiders knew what happened behind closed doors.

Mr. Essi,

Thanks very much for your endless pursuit of the truth. Slowly, the walls appear to be caving in on these clowns.

Consider this a bump. Let's hope these clowns get what they deserve.
