Interesting find. Just to quickly state my opinion, I too am of the camp that meier is a hoaxer. As for this being a true law suit, it's certainly
Lieing isn't against the law, it just makes you a person of questionable character. Fraud though, that's pretty bad.
If they can prove beyond a shadow of a doubt that billy is and has been faking and in turn making a profit from his so called truths they could have a
very good case for fraud.
But it would be an interesting twist on the old ufo tale in the sense that it would be on the burden of the producers and the others involved in the
class action law suit to prove beyond a shadow of a doubt that he is faking.
Of course the reverse is usually true in that we are constantly looking to prove beyond a shadow of a doubt that these things do exist.
If it goes to trial in california and the jury is left with the thought that "hey we can't actually say it didn't happen beyond all reasonable
doubt" it could really be intersting to see the fallout after that.
It certainly be used by meiers followers as proof that he is telling the truth.
On the other hand, if the producers file and win and in the end prove beyond all reasonable doubt that meiers has in fact faked the whole thing and
commited fraud I personally believe it would go a long way to improving the respectability of ufology as a whole.
If it's true it should be a very interesting case to follow. Thought I don't know how that works when you sue someone in a california court and
that person and corporations are in another country.
Can a lawyer on the board clear this up?
Again, interesting find.
PS never under estimate the rage of a jilted producer.
