Yes, it has. In August and September, 2006, USCF President Bill
Goichberg wrote five letters to attorney Michael Matsler of the Law
firm of Rider, Weiner & Frankel, P.C. of Newburgh NY asking him how to
stop Sam Sloan from taking office on the USCF Executive Board after
Sloan had been elected by the members, or how to expel him from the
board after he had taken office.

The answer to these five letters was, in sum, that there was no legal
way to stop Sam Sloan from taking office since he had been elected by
the membership.

Michael Matsler did not do any other legal work for the USCF during
that time period. Thus, it is apparent that the attorney's bill for
August 2006 of $2,790 and for September 2006 of $1998, for a grand
total of $4788 was for responding to these repeated inquiries by Bill
Goichberg asking how to get rid of Sam Sloan.

The answer, which is in the financial statements if you search, is
about $8,000 in attorney's fees.

A better question to ask is how much did the USCF lose by winning that
suit.

By winning that suit (which was not really a suit because in New York
it is called an Article 78 Proceeding) is that the USCF has lost more
than $100,000 THUS FAR by winning that suit, because had my Special
Proceeding been successful, it would have stopped the move to
Crossville, and thus far the USCF has spent more than $100,000 in
additional operating expenses due to increased salaries and operating
expenses in Crossville than it would have spent had we remained in New
Windsor, New York.

This does not even count the cost of building the now nearly worthless
building in Crossville.

The above is, at best a flawed opinion and at worst a total mailcious
lie.

This does not even count the cost of building the now nearly worthless
