I just had another run-in with Phil Teller. He's a home remodeler and art car enthusiast from Redmond, Washington. He used to be on the Redmond Arts Council and you would think that experience might have lead him to be fair and work to solve problems, but the e-mail I got today indicates otherwise. It seems he found an earlier post I wrote about dealing with him back in March. Instead of sending me an apology or money to pay for the towing bill, Phil sent this instead:
Law, a published false statement that is damaging to a personís reputation; a written defamation. Compare with SLANDER
The action or crime of publishing such a statement : a councilor who sued two national newspapers for libel [as adj.] a libel action.
A false and malicious statement about a person.
A thing or circumstance that brings undeserved discredit on a person by misrepresentation
Law, defame (someone) by publishing a libel: she alleged the magazine had libeled her.
Make a false and malicious statement about.
(In admiralty and ecclesiastical law) bring suit against (someone)
You bitch and demand others bring down their posts, now it is time to bring yours down.
See Libel, Slander, Malicious Harassment, Defamation of Character. See lawsuit.
No hard feelings, but, the person who called in the trailer was Vincent DeMar. A next door neighbor, the trailer was towed from in front of my property, the property described as that being owned by Phil Teller. I did not call it in. It was not towed at 1:00 PM It was towed at 11:00 AM while I was at work. These are the facts. You need to learn to check the facts before you publish the lies, they could cost you dearly.
My next email will absolutely be to my attorney Michael Schwartz.
Your actions govern mine.
Shall we say a couple of days? I will be checking.
All my love,
Phil is concerned with libel, so I am posting his version of events. It doesn't jibe with the towing companies version of the events, but in the interest of being fair and balanced, I am posting this so people can read Phil's version as well.
One thing seems certain, Phil does know how to be intimidating and threatening.
