Mr. Ettinger: "...the very credible assertion that Johnson signed a non-disclosure agreement with Alcor, then purloined Alcor's copy..."
ARE YOU KIDDING ME??? That "very credible assertion" came from Charles Platt, (and ONLY Charles Platt, as far as I can tell), who made the exact same assertion, in the exact same manner, about me, when I started criticizing SA, and everyone involved knows it was a blatant lie.
From Johnson's attorneys, in the New York court documents (Document #12, dated Nov. 2, 2009, case # 113938/2009):
"Although Alcor submits a sworn statement from Charles Platt, an independent contractor who once worked for Alcor, Platts affidavit is carefully parsed and never actually states that Larry Johnson signed any nondisclosure agreement...Instead, Platt swears only that he recalls several applicants (with no mention of Larry Johnson) visiting the facility in the last two weeks of December 2002, and that each of those people signed the agreement...Given Mr. Platts specific recollection of individual applicants executing the agreements in December 2002 prior to Mr. Johnsons visit and his careful refusal to swear that Larry Johnson actually signed one in January 2003...Yet once again, a careful reading of Platts affidavit which is apparently the only support for this outrageous statement does not state the Mr. Johnson stole anything. Instead, Platts affidavit simply recounts the fact that after Mr. Johnson left Alcor, Platt had an assistant look to see if there was an executed non-disclosure agreement, and no such agreement was found." http://iapps.courts.state.ny.us/webcivil/FCASMain
Mr. Ettinger...You know me, to some degree. I never signed an NDA, at SA, and I certainly never took anything from my employee file, which as far as I know, was kept in a locked file cabinet, in someone else's office. When I started publicly criticizing SA, Charles Platt suggested to Steve Harris that I had removed an NDA from my SA employee file, and Steve Harris dutifully posted such nonsense, on the Internet. As I recall, I have an email, or an Internet post, in which Charles states he called SA, after I resigned and asked if there was an NDA in my file. (See the similarity, yet?) Of course, the highly-paid, loyal person on the other end of the line probably screamed, "Oh my god, it's not there," on que, though that person knows I never had access to the file, and probably knows I never signed such a document. I've seen no evidence that anyone at Alcor, other than Charles Platt, (and now Alcor and their attorneys, based solely on Platt's word), has ever accused Larry Johnson of stealing an NDA, from Alcor. Now, do you really think the assertion that Johnson signed a non-disclosure form and stole it is "very credible"...considering the source, and considering the very same lie was told, about me, by the very same source???
