Mr. Ronald J. Riley
1323 west Cook Road
Grand Blanc, MI  48439

Dear Mr. Riley:

Both on your web site, and on the InventNet Forum, you have recently published false and defamatory comments about Friedman and Friedman, P.C., as well as Edward B. Friedman, Esquire.  This letter will serve as notice of our demand that you cease and desist from making such false and defamatory statements, remove the existing defamatory statements, and offer a public retraction of your statements.  Among other false and defamatory statements and innuendo, you have published the following statements:  

1. That Friedman and Friedman and Edward B. Friedman are "legal thugs";
2. That Friedman and Friedman  and Edward B. Friedman are "some of the nastiest pit bull types you have ever seen";
3. That Friedman and Friedman abuse the process of law,
4. That Friedman and Friedman and engage in racketeering activity;
5. That Friedman and Friedman and Edward B. Friedman initiate lawsuits for the purpose of infringing on constitutional rights;
6. That Friedman and Friedman have exceeded the bounds of their attorney-client relationship and have become active participants in an alleged illegal enterprise;
7. That your statements are sanctioned by the ACLU and Reporters' Committee for Free Press.  

The facts upon which you rely to make these malicious attacks are completely without basis and are known by you to be false.  As you are surely aware, the lawsuit at Civil Action No. 99-4087 in the United States District Court for the District of South Dakota to which you refer was settled and has been dismissed by the Court.


Ronald J. Riley                                Page 2                        September 20, 2000    

You do not have a right to republish defamatory statements contained in court documents.  In the case you refer to, the National Invention Fraud Center and other plaintiffs agreed that "having found no ethical or professional violations nor any fraudulent business practices, the parties to the lawsuits have satisfactorily resolved their differences."  As such, the allegations made during the course of that proceeding regarding Friedman and Friedman's participation in an alleged enterprise are false, and you have no right to repeat them.  Furthermore, when the case was dismissed, Mr. Neustel apologized to Mr. Edward B. Friedman and Friedman and Friedman in a letter in which he states:  

  The averments and statements referring or relating to Friedman and Friedman and you personally, which were set forth in the plaintiffs' documents in this action were based on incorrect information and assumptions therefrom which were formed in error.  As a result, I regret that unfounded and meritless allegations against you and your law firm were included in the plaintiffs' documents.  I now understand that you and your law firm have a strong reputation for honesty and a high degree of integrity.  

I apologize for any difficulty or embarrassment that the incorrect and unfounded averments and statements in the plaintiffs' documents in this case may have caused you or your law firm.  

 

A copy of Mr. Neustel's letter is attached hereto for your review.  

While you have stated that you have had the we site reviewed by counsel to ensure that it contains no defamatory material, we would advise you to review your current statements against Friedman and Friedman and Edward B. Friedman with your counsel.  The statements are defamatory and must be removed from your web site immediately or Friedman and Friedman will have few options other than to seek legal recourse, which we do not wish to do.  Regardless of your opinion of Invention Submission Corporation (ISC) and the services ISC provides, they, like every other entity, are entitled to legal representation, which Friedman and Friedman has provided and will continue to provide in the future so long as ISC wishes to retain us as counsel.  Our representation of ISC does not give you the right to attack Friedman and Friedman or me personally for providing such legal representation, particularly through the use of false and defamatory accusations.

In light of these facts, we demand that you immediately remove all current references on your web site to Edward B. Friedman and Friedman and Friedman, and publish a retraction, both on your web site and on the InventNet forum stating that your statements were unfounded and meritless, as the plaintiffs in the South Dakota action acknowledged that Edward B. Friedman and Friedman and Friedman have a strong reputation for honesty and integrity.   I would hope that after reviewing these facts, that you decide to immediately remove the statements concerning Friedman and Friedman, Edward B. Friedman, and the South Dakota lawsuit and offer

a retraction.  Your comments are false and are known to you to be false and are causing harm to Friedman and Friedman and Edward B. Friedman.  Please immediately take appropriate steps in accordance with this letter.  

Very truly yours,  

Signed by GAP  

EDWARD B. FRIEDMAN
