My damages [updated 1/18/09]

My regular hourly rate is $200 and I’ll be keeping track of the hours I’m forced to waste on this harassment suit. 

More important than the time and money is that the process server trespassed on my property, violated my privacy and terrorized me.  I now have to arm myself, install security equipment and lock my doors.  

I no longer feel safe in my home. 

I have nightmares.  When I wake up because my dog barks or I hear a car, I can’t go back to sleep because I’m worried that some thug is in my home.

Looked up Dr. Hollander’s weight loss book on Amazon.  NO reviews.  A very strange editorial review.   Searched the web for anything about her book or any review: found NOTHING but the canned weird editorial review and my site with the posted complaint.  I thought about ordering the book just to see what it is about.

I began to feel really sorry for Dr. Hollander.  What’ the heck is going on?

Is this lawsuit a PUBLICITY STUNT to sell the book?   THAT is why they mentioned it in the complaint.  TO SELL THE BOOK!

OF COURSE they knew that I wouldn’t delete, they’re not that stupid. 

That’s why both Dr. Hollander and attorney Johnson left incorrect email addresses, they did not want to resolve this.

It’s late and I’m tired, but maybe I finally figured out what this is all about.  They know they can’t win, but a highly publicized lawsuit will sell the book!
