Remember this back in October of 09
To everyone who contributes here by posting, or by commenting the message below was left by the attorneys for the Mayor. We have been told that we have to stop less than one week into this blog. Because we are exposing what is going on in the city. It is up to each of you to decide for yourselves. Please Read Below Carefully.
My name is James Acho, and my father Ronald and I–along with our firm, Cummings, McClorey, Davis & Acho–represent the City of Dearborn Heights and Mayor Paletko in the Hassan Jamale lawsuit. I have had the opportunity to view some of the shameful posts and comments on this blog, and I am placing every one of you on notice: we are in the process of unearthing who runs this blog, and who is posting. Legal action will be taken against anyone posting defamatory (by the written word it is libel; by the spoken word it is slander) and libelous comments about Mayor Paletko and individuals who work in city government for The City of Dearborn Heights.
The fact that people in this country have 1st Amendment rights is a wonderful thing. And people are certainly entitled to their opinions. Nevertheless, when mistruths and deliberately innacurate statements are made/posted about individuals under the cloak of anonymity, that crosses the line. And that’s also when attorneys get involved. I have seen some terribly innacurate, hurtful, and harmful posts and comments made in this forum, and I am warning whoever is doing same to cease and desist. If you have the courage to discuss this with me in a non-anonymous fashion, feel free to call me at 734-261-2400 and we can discuss any issues you might have.

The players are the same, but the lawyers have changed. This blog has been up for one year. I thought it would be a, excellent Idea to look back at just what happened within the first few weeks of this blog conception.
