lol

so far my assessment

being very cold bloodied

I worked some in the chaplins office and with SAVI some



The self proclaimed victims do NOT line up with victims from my experience
-lack drug and alcohol binges
-lack wild promiscuity
-lack drastic personality changes

Mind you it is not always present but to be completely absent across the board is a sign

Dates and places not lining up is not uncommon
so I take that with a grain of salt

Now taking other videos of behavior with Vic by the victims taken at cons
I smell a rat

Now if anyone wants to add other #MeToo incidents you can
I prefer not to use public precedent
Mob mentality and mob justice are usually inaccurate

What is disturbing
So far the victims have claimed the cons knew about this for years and did nothing
Subtracting Vic from the situation for a lazy analysis
One of the people who appears on Rekieta law made a statement

Paraphrased

Quote:We did this for years
come on


something like this above



I believe such things have happened at Conventions behind the scenes

Another issue that I do not think have been in any of the other posted here

their is a hit list of Voice Actors
Vic is on it

This is flimsy evidence wise
However do to the numbers of ComicsGate, MeToo, GamerGater, and just hard won experiences
the behaviors fit in general

Mind you I am adding
-trying to get nick and Ty both hit by bar associations
-hitting hero hie with bogus copyright strikes
-Anime News Network hit pieces and behavior

Keep in mind funimation allowed itself to be manipulated and did not have strong protections in place for the company
-they did a slopshod investigation
-then posted the why after wards for  Creds and virtue signaling

All smells like a port a potty in phoenix construction sites in mid summer

What I have observed

Their is definite Interference with contracts by the defendants
They have admitted in some incidents

So regardless of innocence
Vic has them on that (the cold bloodied part)

the biggest blow landed so far
Was Monica's NAMED witness response (stan I think)

He not only denied it but said if that had happened as described Vic would NEVER have been back
He made a sworn statement and entered it into the record

(she claimed he was the one who stopped vic by knocking on the door and saw her distress)

Anime voice actor Vic Mignogna loses big as judge drops final claims that Dallas-area studio and colleagues defamed him

In a pivotal #MeToo moment for the multimillion-dollar anime industry, Grapevine-based voice actor Vic Mignogna — long hounded by allegations of inappropriate behavior toward women — lost big in court Friday.

State District Judge John Chupp dismissed the remaining claims in the defamation lawsuit that “Dragon Ball” star Mignogna filed in April against his former employer, two of his Dallas-area colleagues and the fiancé of one of the women.


Chupp’s action came after mediation efforts this week failed to get a resolution.


Friday’s decision left Mignogna 0 for 17 in his legal battle, as Chupp already had dismissed 12 of the claims, which included defamation, tortious interference and conspiracy during an early September hearing.

The latest order in the case is unlikely to tamp down the nasty firefight that has raged on social media between the #kickvic and #IStandWithVic camps. The split in the anime community over who are the villains and who are the victims has only sharpened with each development in the case.


This sorry mess started in January, as Mignogna’s most recent film, Dragon Ball Super: Broly, soared to box office records. Its release also set off another round of allegations on social media about the 57-year-old actor's aggressive kisses, hugs and unwanted sexual advances.

Mignogna repeatedly has denied all allegations of inappropriate actions, although he acknowledged in a June 26 deposition that people have commented negatively for years about his behavior.

As a columnist who writes regularly about these issues, I became interested in this case because of the voice actor’s decision to go on the offensive — digging in and fighting back against what he and his devoted fans have labeled lies, exaggerations and ploys for attention.


The first batch of dismissals came Sept. 6 as Mignogna’s astonishingly disorganized — and at times ill-prepared and illogical — legal team tried to make its case before Chupp.  Eleven days after that hearing, the judge summoned attorneys for both sides to his Tarrant County chambers and
ordered mediation.

Before dismissing the lawyers that day, Chupp handed out copies of threats of violence that were emailed and circulated on social media against him and others since the Sept. 6 hearing.


According to the transcript from the Sept. 17 meeting, Chupp noted that he wanted to make sure both sides were aware of potential danger and said, “This is real life stuff. This isn’t an animé cartoon or something like that. And I don’t know if people can distinguish between the two.”


He told the lawyers, “Y’all may owe a duty to this community, since y’all’s clients are a part of it, to try to get this case worked out.”

For the sake of anime fans and those inside the industry, Chupp said, he hoped that mediation would prove successful.

“Before I rule on the rest of it,” Chupp told the lawyers, “I’d rather you try to get this worked out. I think y’all have the opportunity to heal the community by doing something that y’all can all agree on, as opposed to having me do something, and then y’all having to appeal it ... this could go on years.”


The lawyers agreed to try, and that mediation session took place Wednesday. After those efforts produced no resolution, Chupp made his Friday ruling.


Since I first wrote about this case in early August, Mignogna’s Tyler-based attorney, Ty Beard, has never responded to my multiple emails and phone calls seeking comment.

The voice actor’s legal fight is apparently backed by a GoFundMe warchest, which has reached almost $250,000 since Minnesota lawyer Nick Rekieta opened it in February.


But even that large a sum may not cover all the costs. Next up for the court is to sort out attorney’s fees — which could total up to half a million dollars given the multiple defendants and their legal representation — and mandatory sanctions.

Mignogna has provided the English-language voice for hundreds of animated shows, films and games created in Japan. He’s long been among the most popular actors at conventions across the nation that allow fans of the genre to meet their heroes.

His lawsuit named Funimation, voice actors Jamie Marchi and Monica Rial, and Rial's fiancé, Ron Toye. The lawsuit painted the company and three individuals as a band of conspirators leading the charge to ruin Mignogna’s career. In response, those accused have maintained that the legal action is aimed at unjustly silencing them


Marchi, Rial and Toye were among the scores of animé talent and fans who, beginning early this year, tweeted critically about the actor's behavior. Rial alleged that Mignogna grabbed her in a hotel room and forcibly kissed her without her consent at an anime convention in 2007. Marchi accused him of violently pulling her hair in a tense office encounter.


Funimation, a Flower Mound-based company owned by Sony Pictures Television that dubs and distributes animé, announced in February that it had severed ties with Mignogna. Funimation’s statement included few specifics about the voice actor but said, “We do not condone any kind of harassment or threatening behavior.”


At the Sept. 6 hearing, Chupp dismissed all claims against Marchi, all except defamation against Funimation and all except defamation and conspiracy against Rial and Toye.


His Friday order ended those remaining claims. Whether it ends the ugly social media warfare is far less likely.


The numbers

sigh

this is bad for 2020
it made the behavior legit

EDIT:
I went to twitter and guess what

it might not be over
