Now, I wouldn’t mind it so much but (1) I don’t have the money and that’s just a “retainer” as Dr. Anna Scherzer might actually require more! And the reason it is so high is because the Board wants to send TWO CARTONS of documents for their good psychiatrist to review at $375/hour!
And (2) I don’t like the Board’s method of swamping their “Independent Medical Examiner” with papers because their procedure is (a) biasing. Is the Board trying to overly direct their IME psychiatrist because they are trying to achieve a particular outcome?
(b) Might the Board and the State be trying to break me in every manner possible, particularly financially? Since they can’t break my spirit.
Also, (c) we did not like the fact the Chairman of the Board, “Larry Loveboy” at the time, refused to share with me or with my attorney the documentation the Board was going to submit to their designated examiner. Does this smell like a setup? Of course, those good folks would never do such a thing! It must be my paranoia.
Since (3) (a) I am unable to afford the Board’s indulgent [$15,000 is just the "retainer." There is no limit to the expense. I sure wish I could get a job that paid like that!] and (b) potentially biasing methodology [The Board should be required to submit the names of three Independent Medical Examiners just like they required of me in the past.], there is no way I may prevail. Is that what the Board wants? Certainly, not. What am I thinking! After all, these are good people.
And (c) as I do not have adequate representation nor the resources to proceed to court, a new phase has begun. That is (4) my bringing my case before you, the public right here on my blog.
In short order I will call my first witness:
The former Executive Director of the Board, Mrs. Maxine McCarthy.
