Default Susan Polgar Responds to USCF motions to Dismiss Her Lawsuit

Susan Polgar has filed ten different responses to the motions by the
USCF Defendants to dismiss her lawsuit in Texas.

Each response is a little bit different. For example, her response to
Goichberg's motion to dismiss adds new paragraphs 11, 14 and 15.

Her response to Karl Kronenberger adds new paragraphs 13-16.

Here is her response to the USCF's motion to dismiss. All of the other
responses are the same or add a few new paragraphs.

Sheez! People actually read these forums? I thought this place was
dead. No wonder she's asking for $1 damages. A tempest in a teapot;
nobody really cares.

Sam (if you're really Sam) do you or do you not appear in a photo with
this gentleman, N. T. Whitaker, sitting on his knee? It's been
reproduced in a book on his life. State for the record please.

Susan Polgar is asking for $25 million in damages, not $1 in damages.

She offered to settle her suit against the USCF (but not against the
individual defendants) for $1 plus an apology from the USCF for all of
the grievous wrongs done to her. This was obviously just a ploy. If
the USCF confessed to these supposedly terrible things, then the
individual defendants would be on the hook.

Note that she is suing but for defamation but when asked what
defamatory words were spoken or written against her, she replies that
she does not know but when she has access to the archives then she
will be able to find out what bad things have been said about her.

Please note paragraph 3 of her response. It states:

3. Defendant’s claim that Plaintiff failed to state a claim for
defamation because the pleadings fail to provide specific examples and
because “Plaintiff has chosen to sue so many Defendants, Plaintiff
needed to specifically state whatever Defendant did or said, when such
alleged acts were done and how Plaintiff was damaged by said alleged
acts” is untenable. Defendant’s argument is not supported by law, and
Defendant’s claim improperly heightens the “short and plain statement”
pleading requirements of Rule 8. FED. R. CIV. P. 8(a). Plaintiff
clearly indicated in Part XVIII of her original petition that the
defamatory statements made by defendants are contained in electronic
form in archives controlled by Defendants; therefore, Plaintiff’s
ability to state Defendant’s defamatory statements “specifically”is
dependant on her access to these archives.

In other words, Polgar is claiming that she should be allowed to
search the archives so that she can try to find something defamatory
said or written about her.

====================

Wrong as usual. Settlement by a joint tortfeasor is not an admission by a
codefendant. The settlement in fact reduces the codefendants liability, if
any, by the amount of the settlement.

Susan Polgar is suing the USCF and its Executive Director and its
entire Board of Directors, other than herself and her husband. Any
admission that the USCF committed any wrong doing, such as defaming or
harassing her, would consitute an admission that the Executive
Director and the other board members did those things.

===========

Wrong, as usual.

ITFP evidence of settlement is inadmissble to prove liability against the
settling party under Rule 408, much less against a non settling party.

Compromise and Offers to Compromise

(a) . . . not admissible ... (1) furnishing or offering or promising to
furnish--or accepting or offering or promising to accept--a valuable
consideration in compromising or attempting to compromise the claim

ITSP, even if admissible, which it's not, settling is not an admission of
guilt, it is a relase from liability in exchange for agreed consideration.
Any competently drafted settlement agreement says exactly that.

And ITTP the Board's liability is based either on administrative activities
it undertook and or based upon the actions of one or some or all of the
Board members individually. So an admission by B, even if admissible, which
it isn't, and even if probative of guilt, which its not, would not taint
particular board members. That is, an admission by A that he is liable for
an action by B is not proof of C's culpability.

Then explain why, when Susan Polgar agreed to settle her case against
FIDE in Polgar vs. FIDE, under which FIDE agreed to pay her attorney's
fees only, Susan went around telling the world that she had "won" the
case?

I realize that Susan Polgar is your Jesus, but in the real world anything
she might have said doesn't effect the federal rules of evidence.

You have the critical thinking skills of a sea cucumber. If you weren't such
a pompous buffoon you'd be pathetic, nearly.

People who usually lose cherish a rare victory disproportionately

Why do you still run around bragging about your embarrassing
performance before the Supreme Court, even though you lost your dealer's
license?
