It indeed will be interesting once the depositions begin. I want to know how many times and how often the Duke Council of frame met and discussed this case. I want to know when the first meeting was. I want to know how many times Duke and the City of Durham met or talked on the phone. I want to know when that first meeting was. I want to know how Dean Sue concluded it would be only a minor assault charge when ALL the evidence pointed to no contact with anyone. What was in the Duke report sent to Dean Sue at 7:30 that morning. Was it her conclusion or a higher up like Moneta to say what kind of charges may be forthcoming? Did they ever look at the evidence or just read the DukePD report? If the DPD knew on the 14th and the Duke PD knew on the 14th and dean sue knew on the 14th and nifong knew on the 14th and the mayor probably knew on the 14th then why did brodhead not know on the 14th? Did he lie like nifong lied about when he learned about the case? And why was he the only one left in the dark? What was the NCCU chancellors role in this. Was it to emphasize the race issue or abate the race issue. Why was the story NCCU at all if CGM was a stripper on her own time? Who made this an NCCU story?

AMAZING

well lets see here,

Victoria and a hand full of her friends

Jesse Jackson

Nifong and enablers

Cash (shake)

The Panthers

NAACP

The media

I don't think we can blame CGM for a NCCU story, as far as we know she didn't return to the campus for a long time.

She stated she had a function at hotel room with a couple male and female. She stated she danced for them and used a small vibrator (sex toy)

:pu: :pu: :pu:

Haha :)

A "function"? I think she forgot the opening syllable: dysfunction.

Specifically, sexual dysfunction: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sexual_dysfunction

N&O publishes in its Saturday edition its exclusive March 24 interview with Mangum, inciting racial aspects:

Dancer gives details of ordeal
A woman hired to dance for the Duke lacrosse team describes a night of racial slurs, growing fear and, finally, sexual violence


SAMIHA KHANNA AND ANNE BLYTHE - STAFF WRITERS

The woman who says she was raped last week by three members of the Duke University lacrosse team thought she would be dancing for five men at a bachelor party, she said Friday. But when she arrived that night, she found herself surrounded by more than 40.
Just moments after she and another exotic dancer started to perform, she said, men in the house started barking racial slurs. The two women, both black, stopped dancing.
"We started to cry," she said. "We were so scared." (snip
)
This alone should have sent up red-flags. I can't remember anytime
in my entire life, a rape victim giving an interview to a major newspaper
less than ten days after the alleged rape -- even when it's a single person
rape -- let alone an even more traumatizing violent gang-rape laced with
racial slurs -- nothing even remotely similar to this.

Tara's lies or no Tara lies, Gottlieb knew there was no rape, else he wouldn't
have been playing public-perception-manipulation games like this.

This dialogue is sooo good; the jigsaw-puzzle is nearing completion, and things are being put into their proper perspective.

Completing the description that puts the role of Levicy into its proper perspective has eluded me, but is becoming more clear.

Of course, the facts of her malicious misrepresentations have been clear for a long time; but how did she come to be the contact-person for production of the medical records? It was as if she was their official custodian, with the power, if not the authority, to amend them.

The National Protocol for Sexual Assault Medical Forensic Examinations describes, among other things, the Sexual Assault Evidence Collection Kit [which, by the way, it never refers-to as “ The Rape-Kit”], and states[p.70]:

“Documentation of the chain-of-custody information is vital to ensuring that there has been no loss or alteration of evidence prior to trial. Educate all those involved in handling, transferring, and storing evidence regarding the specifics of maintaining the chain of custody.”

These specifics are lengthy, but include detailed documentation of every step in the chain-of custody of the evidence, including the S.A.E. Report, its hand-over to clerks for storage in a secure place, with times, places, signatures, and retrieval from the secure place.

The subpoena that apparently lead to the production of a Medical-Records-Copy of CGM’s 03/13-14/2006 ER medical record, is dated 03/20/2006, is requested by Michael B. Nifong, signed “MBNifong” , addressed to THERESA ARICO (RECORDS), FORENSIC NURSE EXAMINER, [DUMC. DUKE NORTH EMERGENCY DEPARTMENT...], and does not seem to specify the items to be produced “for the court.”

There appears to be no signature of receipt of the subpoena, but “L.V.W. Hyman” signed-off that he delivered “a copy of the subpoena to the person named above” [Arico].

Is Arico the custodian of this record? Is it that simple? Discovery should reveal any chain-of-custody documentation, and how it came about that Levicy had the access necessary to alter this evidence.

As alleged in the complaint there seems to have been a lack of supervision. over Manly, Arico, and Levicy. This is a chronic problem in medical research centers, such as DUMC.

Faculty with supervisory responsibilities tend to neglect these responsibilities because they are boring, and take time away from what they really want, which is to do research, lengthen their CV with publications [or perish], make more money, get higher academic rank, academic tenure, and research grants.

________________________________________________________________________________


It is not my understanding that Ekstrand’s complaint alleged an over-arching conspiracy whose purpose was to send persons to jail for a crime they did not commit.

It is my understanding that Ekstrand’s complaint was alleging a particular confluence of facts amounting to an association-in-fact enterprise, satisfying the legal definition of the word “conspiracy” , a word that in legal usage has fewer dramatic overtones than it does in non-legal usage.

It is certainly true that such an association-in-fact enterprise could have the effect of sending persons to jail for a crime they did not commit.

Just putting some thoughts out right now.

Does anyone find it strange that the escort service sent two black woman to the LAX part rather than the requested white and hispanic women? Would the escort service have let the caller know that there were substitutes, and if they minded? Sometimes people or groups will not accept the persons who are sent if they do not meet their requests. After the 4 minutes of dancing and all hell broke loose, does anyone find it strange that crystal could call "other" people like the escort service but not call her ride? Why did she leave with Kim instead of getting her driver back to the house to pick her up? Was her ride never concerned about where crystal was and did he ever go back to the house to try to pick her up but found her missing instead? Why did crystal not call him from kroger for him to pick her up? As dangerous as stripping was, was he not concerned? How did the escort service know that crystal made claims of rape or assault? How did kim know that crystal made claims of rape or assault? When did the escort service know that kim knew. Where did Kim go after the cops took crystal away from Kroger? It appeared that kim knew the girls were screwing (oops bad word) the guys out of a lot of money and wanted to get out of there fast. Did the escort service tell any cops where their dancers might be that night?

It was a Monday night during Spring Break. It was Durham.

The booking person lied and told them one dancer had "blond highlights in her hair" = Crystal!!!

Rather than be rude or be charged on the credit card reservation for turning them away (and CGM was 40 minutes late already), the guys accepted the damaged goods begrudgingly.

Of course it was bad form on the part of the agency.

As for Crystal's incoherence and the rest, it does not really matter; though I do not fault your curiosity, I agree it does not make any sense.

"They did not bring bodyguards, as dancers usually do, and were not white or Hispanic, as the agency had described. The consensus was to proceed anyway. They had been waiting a long time, and it would be rude to send the dancers away. Devon Sherwood, recently arrived from the airport, jokingly welcomed the idea of nonwhite dancers. Someone else said, "D-Wood's gonna love it." Most of the guys tried to have fun and make the best of it."--UPI, p. 24

For being gentlemen, they get charged with rape and pilloried as immoral privileged creeps.

Good questions.

When exactly did the escort service find out that Crystal was in the hospital charging rape?

And who else found out, from the escort service? And when?

Putting my question another way, did the escort agency call any white or hispanic dancers/stripper or just tell pittman and mangum to show up. The escort agency would have known that the house was in a fairly nice neighborhood near Duke University by the address. Just thinking if all the white girls were already busy and these 2 older black gals were what was leftover for a monday evening dance during spring break with not many people left in town?

I would like to thank several Blog Hooligans, including Baldo, Quasi, and JSwift, for reading the draft of this chronology and making some additional suggestions, which I have incorporated into an edited version today. However, all responsibility for errors or omissions are mine.

Some events were added such as Mangum's March 17 and 18 appearances at the Platinum Club, and Himan's March 28 phone call to Mangum and his interview the same day with Blake Boehmler (student at party who was not lacrosse team member). Other events were amplified.

I appreciate any further suggestions. I hope at some point to do another installment covering April 1 through April 19.

Timeline of events for council

I am now interested in how accurate this timeline is that was presented to the Durham city council. I ask because it states as fact that on March 15th at 16:49 hrs that Gottlieb sent out an email requesting the communities help. Does anyone have a copy of this email and did it specifically say a rape occurred? The reason I am asking is if this timeline is correct then this was way before himan or gottlieb ever talked with the SANE nurse (levicy). So they had no corraboration of the rape by levicy by that time. This timeline shows that contact with levicy was made on the 16th at about 11:00 am. Is it possible that levicy was on that contact list that was emailed by gottlieb saying a raped occurred. If she was, was that e-mail enough of a persuasion for levicy to agree to himans or gottliebs suggestion that a rape did occur? If she read that the cops thought it was a rape before levicy was even contacted or got the report would that also convince levicy that something really did happen even though the evidence she gathered indicated otherwise? I am also wondering why gottlieb would say it was just a party rather than a striper party where a rape occurred. If levicy was not on the listserv could this email be forwarded to her by someone who knew she did the SANE?

Of course if the timeline is not correct than someone was incorrectly informing the city council.

chatham re your Post #86:

Very interesting.

My suspicion has been of some collusion, direct or indirect, between Gottlieb/Himan and Levicy.
(before Gottlieb's e-mail, so that the sequence would be Levicy-Gottlieb, rather than Gottlieb-Levicy)

Gottlieb's State Bar Deposition re: the list prepared for City Council:

Brocker questioning his note taking and when he typed up his notes...

Quote:
 
"It's kind of confusing because there were typewritten notes that were made up very early on in the case, and that was a typewritten document for -- we were ordered to put something together for the City Manager to review to give a presentation to City Council.

"And when I prepared that section, we went through and actually delected almost all of it. It got down to a point where it didn't say anything, and that is what was finally turned in."


Sure would be nice to have those original PD notes -- notes that Baker had PD edit "to [the] point that they didn't say anything".

Good pick up!

The first e-mail that we know Gottlieb sent was on March 17 to the Trinity Park listerv:


"Fri Mar 17, 2006 7:15 am

The Durham Police District 2 Criminal Investigations Violent Crimes Unit is conducting an investigation concerning a rape of a young woman by three males at 610 N. Buchanan that was reported on 3/14/06 in the early morning hours. The female arrived at the residence for a party close to 11:30pm on Monday 3/13/2006 and left on Tuesday 3/14/2006 reportedly after midnight. Anyone in the area who saw or heard anything unusual, please contact Investigator Himan at 919-560-4582 x 229 or I at 560-4582 x 228. Thank you for your continued assistance."



There could have been an earlier one, or the time-line produced by Gottlieb after the fact was in error. If there was an earlier e-mail on March 15, it would be important to know the contents. On to the depositions.

In other words, he admits he destroyed evidence in the case...
