HERALD PRINTS BISD PROPAGANDA

First of all like I said the night the case settled - if the insurance company pays it is clean. Assuming it is true ACE paid $250,000.00 to settle then the deal is good. My problem is the $50,000 of taxpayer money.

This is where the Herald is publishing BISD's propaganda. BISD had no duty to settle and remained fully covered had they rejected the settlement. Once BISD paid out the $50,000 in costs and attorneys fees it met its obligation under the policy. ACE had no authority to or require BISD pay a penny more.

The Herald's decision to publish an article allowing for BISD's propaganda should be no shocker. I knew there was a con here. The sad part is, Rendon's greed could be what sinks him. The $50,000 was illegal and given the million dollar contract he gave to Escobedo's brother it could amount to a crime. Whether the FBI will bring indictments is any one's guess.

The bottom line is BISD had no legal obligation to pay one penny beyond the deductible. The Herald's article claiming BISD could have been on the hook for the entire thing is total bullshit. It is sad when a publisher is so desperate to destroy a community he will aid unethical elected officials in their conduct.

Again, it is not for me to decide if a crime occur - it is for the FBI - but the FBI certainly knows there is no truth to BISD's claims.

GUYS POST TO HERALD

If I post the obvious - ACE cannot force BISD to pay a penny once the $50,000 deductible has been met, the Herald will delete my post.  I am banned from posting at the Herald.  Someone needs to post to the Herald some simple facts - Judge Hanen dismissed the whistle blower lawsuit, and two ACE cannot force BISD to pay a penny once the deductible was met.  Also someone needs to ask why the Herald is posting BISD's propaganda without question.

But I do want to be clear - the fact ACE was willing to pay $250,000 tells me they saw exposure.  This is fine - but the extra $50,000 demanded by Rendon was greed and could sink him and his lawyers.  But then that will be for the FBI to decide.

I don't think the Herald story said BISD would be on the hook for the whole thing if they did not accept the deal. As I read it, it said that if BISD did not accept the insurance companies recommendation that they settle for the $300,000.00, with BISD paying the deductible, BISD would be would then have to pony up for anything over $300.000. I'm no friend of big insurance but this seems fair to me.

Seems like Juan Montoya believes the Herald article, enough to cut and paste it.

You are correct BISD theoretically would be responsible for anything over that which ACE was putting on the table.

That is the law and that is fair.

The problem is the claim that ACE said BISD would be responsible if they did not accept the settlement offer which included BISD paying more than its $50,000 deductible - this ACE cannot do - also I am not blaming ACE for anything - I think BISD is lying to protect its improper use of taxpayer money


But your comment did catch an overstatement on my part - thanks
