Here is part of the documentation that Mrs. Gentles lawyer has given her. It seems that Tarbutt is threatening Mrs. Gentles with the 'claim' that if she won't go along with this that she will have to pay the entire cost of Tarbutt's defense of the case.
6.0 DISCLOSURE OF TERMS
The Settling Parties have agreed on a joint statement that can be released to the public if inquiries are made about the Subject Action.
Said statement shall read, ““Both the Gentles family (or Mrs. Gentles) and Target agree that this was a tragic event and are saddened by the loss of Graham. At this time, both parties have discussed the issue and Mrs. Gentles has decided to dismiss Target from the case. Out of respect for the family, neither Target nor the family has anything additional to share at this time.”
Note: If she agrees with this then she has a damn poor law firm giving her advice!
All who posted private messages, I am alright. I had to take time off, life can be very overwhelming. I appreciate all your kind words.
I have dropped the lawsuit. Target will never take responsibility for their actions and have made the last few weeks unbearable.
I will continue my fight against Target by never setting foot in any store, I will continue to be outspoken of their murder of my son, and I will never understand their lack of compassion for all the employees.
Target has asked that I meet with them so that I will find closure (are they kidding?). How can I find closure when they took my only child from me? I have no desire to forgive or forget what Charlie and Tony did and continue to do to their Target crew.
For myself all I can do is warn parents that their children are not safe working in places where workforce bullying is practiced and ignored by management. People need to standup against loathsome behavior and never be accepting of it just because it is not happening to them.
When you sit quietly by these practices you are giving the bullies a stage and letting them know they have power. Take the power back for the good and fight the injustices.
