There are factual errors in this story. First, Mr. Aleshire responded to her email request within about an hour of receiving it. Her story was not posted until two hours later, yet she omits his comments. The editorializing detracts from her credibility.
Here is what he told her, and she chose to ignore: From: Bill Aleshire [mailto:email@example.com]

The Judge took under advisement, until next week, the City’s latest attempt to dismiss the case without the depositions and Mr. Ortega’s attempt to stop his deposition. We will know next week what Judge Naranjo decides.
Mr. Ortega’s attorney released some emails at the end of the court hearing today. They are attached. I have only had a little time to review them, but the first obvious problem is that there are no emails between January 5 and June 20, 2012. Were there never any emails sent or received by Mr. Ortega to his colleagues during this time or with the stadium promoters, or have they been deleted? The emails also indicate a deliberate tactic to communicate “off-line” back then using personal email accounts (see Page ORT----4).
