need to be reminded that I don't drive a car because I'm a blind kid. That's the stupidest thing in the world, and he

did it just to irritate me. Were there any statements that he's made to third parties that have been untrue about you? I don't know what he's said to anybody.

No. As you're sitting here now, you're not aware of any writings or any oral statements that he's made about you that were false, is that correct? I'm not aware of any, no.

because it was Christmas Eve, but there were timeline issues and so I attended. Who told you that there was timeline issues? I don't know. Maybe it came out in the meeting. Why else
