May-29-14 torrefan: 1. Is it true that you and your husband simultaneously ran for the USCF Policy Board?
2. If the answer to no.1 is in the affirmative, is it true that you urged USCF members to vote for your husband?
3. If the answer to no.3 is also in the affirmative, is it true that you did that without disclosing that you were married to him (or was his girlfriend and would soon marry him)?
4. did you also claim he was a business genius?
5. If your answer to no.4 is in the affirmative, did you do that without disclosing that he had declared personal bankruptcy once?
6. Did your husband declare personal bankruptcy more than once?
7. Is it true that the Mottershead report commissioned by the USCF found that Paul Truong had falsified thousands of e-mails, making e-mails that he had written appear to be from persons who had not written them?
8. Is it true that it was after being elected to the USCF Policy Board, that you and your husband proceeded to sue the USCF?
Why can't she simply answer these?

Hindi masama ang NCFP, tao lang. Ang palitan ay yang namamahala.
Premium Chessgames Member john barleycorn: And maybe paying the US$ 39,000 was just a humitarian act to prevent another bankruptcy? Even though the opponent was a professional in that field with a proven track record.
May-29-14 bubuli55: This happened 7 yrs ago. It was brought up to court but USCF decided to settle. All parties agreed with the court approval.
FSR comes out here saying GM Susan endorsed Truong while running for office. < So? > Troung is a business genius < maybe > but filed for bankruptcy. < nothing unlawful >.
What is your real beef, FSR? Take them to court. Not here.
GM Susan says she does not want to go back there. Respect that.
Premium Chessgames Member john barleycorn: if a job application is supported by a prominent person the usual questions for a CV and references are greatly eliminated. That's life.
However, why not say: " First, he is my husband and 2. due to bad luck in his career he cannot find another employer"?
May-29-14 bubuli55: you are poking because you want to know everything about it. Chismoso. It's not for you to decide. She does not want to go back there. Respect that.
Premium Chessgames Member john barleycorn: <bubuli55> it is also an exercise in a person's intergrity, isn't?

<USCF Agrees to Settle Lawsuits with Susan Polgar and Paul Truong By USCF Executive Board
January 23, 2010
The USCF announced it has agreed to a settlement with Susan Polgar and Paul Truong stemming from lawsuits filed by both parties. Polgar’s lawsuit, filed in August 2008, alleged libel, slander, defamation and other claims. USCF’s California lawsuit, adding claims against Susan Polgar in October 2008, alleged email hacking and wire fraud. The USCF also filed an Illinois lawsuit against Susan Polgar and Paul Truong to remove them as Executive Board members and end their relationship with the USCF for not acting in the best interests of the USCF.
Under the settlement agreement, all named parties except Gregory Alexander and Sam Sloan have agreed to dismiss all claims and counter-claims in the actions in Texas and California. The Illinois lawsuit will end with a judgment confirming that Susan Polgar and Paul Truong are no longer Executive Board members. The USCF’s civil case against Alexander for email hacking and wire fraud continues, and Alexander is also facing similar federal criminal charges in California.
As part of the settlement, Polgar and Truong have agreed to never contest the USCF Executive Board’s action in revoking their USCF memberships; acknowledge that they are no longer members of the USCF or members of the USCF Executive Board; agree to never seek, run for, or accept a leadership position in the USCF; and will never contest the Delegate’s actions that ratified the decisions of the USCF Executive Board at the August 2009 Annual Delegates Meeting.
Under the settlement, the USCF will allow Polgar and Truong to be playing, non-members of the USCF and will be listed as “Playing Non-Member Status.”
The USCF Insurer, Ansur America Insurance Company, a member of Frankenmuth Financial Group, has agreed to provide $131,000 to the USCF and $39,000 to Polgar’s attorneys.
The USCF is pleased that this matter is finally settled and that no USCF funds will go to Polgar and Truong. Additionally, the USCF receives $131,000 to agree to a settlement.>
May-29-14 torrefan: Clearly the duo were kicked out from the USCF Executive Board, their USCF memberships were revoked and they were banned from seeking USCF leadership position again.
USCF also did not pay them 39k. It was the insurer who did.
Moreover, it was not as if they were the ones who gained financially from the settlement since USCF got much more than they received: 131k.
May-29-14 torrefan: Contrast that with what she just recently wrote:
<My philosophy is in a lawsuit, the side who pays loses, even $1. The other side paid nearly $40,000 to my attorneys and all allegations / charges dropped. I paid $0 to the other side. Do I need to explain more? :)
May-29-14 torrefan: The "other side" (USCF) did not pay you. The insurer did. And the other side got more from the insurer, so how can you construe that as <losing>? You and your husband were kicked out from USCF and banned for life. And you imply you <won>?
May-29-14 torrefan: Worse, and to be more precise, USCF got 131k while you and your husband got 0. The 39k was paid not to you but to your lawyers.
Susan Polgar: <frandie> Proof: The other side paid nearly $40,000 to my attorneys and all allegations / charges dropped. End of story. >
Premium Chessgames Member john barleycorn: <torrefan> aka the "Perry Mason" of Fairview. Good job.
May-29-14 torrefan: Thanks John. Without your help and God's intervention this would not have been possible. I would also like to thank my supporters, friends, my manager, my wife, children and mistresses for the encouragement and for being there when i need them most. To CG and Daniel Freeman for hosting this event. And to all truth-seekers of the world, I share this award with you!
Premium Chessgames Member john barleycorn: I'm overwhelmed. I'm missing the words...thank you, salamat po, thank you very big. whoopie...
May-29-14 torrefan: and to <fsr> for keeping the flames of justice burning. Mabuhay si Bigote!
Premium Chessgames Member john barleycorn: Besides all, getting the lawyers paid is different for claiming US$25m (=twentyfive million) in damages:
<In August 2008, Susan Polgar filed her own lawsuit in Lubbock, Texas, against the USCF, four of its members, and other members of the USCF in which she claimed libel, slander, and business disparagement. Susan is asking for $25 million in damages. She is suing the USCF, Bill Goichberg, Jim Berry, Randy Bauer, Randy Hough, Bill Hall, Brian Mottershead, Hal Bogner, Chess Magnet LLC, Continental Chess Incorporated, Jerry Hanken, Brian Lafferty, Sam Sloan, and Karl Kronenberger.
Susan offered to settle her suit against the USCF for $1 plus an apology from the USCF for all the grievous wrongs done to her. >
And even the 1$ and the apology were not paid.
