At the very end we had to look at the final picture what was best for not only our team but for all the challenger
Sure, Norbert - sell your soul.
He's not sold his soul. He stopped his YC from going broke. Fair enough.
its not his club so he couldnt sell his soul or anything else
you have to remember ggyc is an alleged and claimed 501 c 3 under IRS DEPT OF TREASURY -its a non profit and cant go broke-
what ever evilsin exchanged for with ggyc is / has been illegal and when all the ggyc cover ups are investigated fully - including Simpson murder and cayard /ggyc coverup - evilsin is liable as is the soul seller norbert -
acea is trying to run circus 35 far away from sf and cali and usa - did you notice that yet ?
You may want to look up liquidated damages clauses to see how they work. I wouldn't have spoken either if millions of dollars depended on it. I am quite surprised he said what he said to Maxim, frankly.
Believe me when I tell you that I really, really wish the whole story would get out, and that the right people are forced to admit their culpability. But I ain't optimistic.
So am I. Makes me think that either his NDA was not that strict and he stayed silent until now because that's his understanding of the correct behavior, or he had that on his chest for a while and just vented that piece of information among other things not realizing that THAT particular point was going to be one of the highlights of the transcript of the conversation. (I have no idea of the working "ethics" of Maxim, but I have met countless people who had been very "surprised" to read what reporters had kept from an hour long (or more) conversation )
As you are, I am not optimistic about ever hearing the whole real story. Juan-K and PC have disappeared (something neither is naturally inclined to) and all other actors in this tragedy have chosen to stay evasive and deafeningly silent, including very decent people such as Loick Peyron and Iain Percy.
As for legal consequences for TH, I doubt it will result in anything. Even if he had the leverage, TT doesn't seem to me (and I may very well be completely wrong) as the kind of guy who does that. A very angry phone-call (and/or letter from his lawyers) to TH would be closer to my perception of the guy's MO. (He knows he fucked up when he hired PC and gave him the keys.)
P.S: As much as I respect TH's achievements I doubt that his reservations about safety were the only reason Artemis dropped him. The fact that Artemis hired people like Nathan Outeridge and Loick Peyron well into their program clearly indicates they had reservation about TH as "chief on the water" in this new environment.
I have heard the whole story, pieced together from conversations with a half dozen AR team members over a year and a lot of alcohol, and subject to my agreement that I would not publish it. But it will eventually get out.
If you talk to the top designers and AC guys though, they generally believe that the fault lies mostly with Cayard though, which is why I believe he will never work at that level again. I believe he should pay more than he will for his reckless disregard of the boat's safety issues.
cayard is liable now and always will be
maybe ggyc will be busted with cayard also with his phony shell corp - USCG hasnt moved on investigation
but USCG WASH DC has shown some concerns-
with corp and cayard thru /by my FOIA'S - filed with USCG - stay tuned
