CtWatchdog And Courant Resolve Wrongful Termination Suit

Just to close the loop on my lawsuit against The Courant and The Tribune, where I spent 40 years as an investigative reporter, federal court reporter, business editor and investigative consumer columnist.

I and my attorney, Joseph D. Garrison of New Haven, have withdrawn the wrongful termination suit, which we filed in 2009 and  was based on my claim that I was fired illegally because of advertising pressure, which I had been assured would not happen.

I want to make it clear that I have no animosity toward Courant Publisher Richard Graziano or the staff of The Courant. While to a small degree we are in competition, both at www.ctwatchdog.com and soon at www.cttalking.com I wish both Graziano and the Courant the best. I am a Courant subscriber and Rich and I are Facebook friends.

    Why? Did you reach a settlement with The Courant? I hope?? or did you just withdraw your claim??

    Thanks Helen for your note. Hope everything is well. I won’t be commenting on that, Publisher Graziano can if he wants.

    How many times did they make you write that on the blackboard? :0)

      Very cute Bob. Those who know me well know that I am not even close to flawless, but saying something false, especially in writing, is not one of my issues. If anything, being too honest is more of my problem. So no one puts a gun to my head when I say that I have grown to respect Rich Graziano over the past year.

  4. …..I’m glad you’ve reached a resolution. I hope this site continues, though. Even though I’m not a resident of the US northeast, I’ve found a lot of the material here very valuable.

  5. Now that you are through the process, upward and onward!
