It's about time. I hope that she takes all of them to the cleaners. The behavior toward this woman has been incredibly harsh!

BUT, what is this about UC covering the costs of defending those two lying ex-cops? What Walp and Doran did to this lady was outside of their authorized job duties. Why is UC defending these jerks? Do these guys have photos of Dynes and Foley performing immoral acts with barnyard animals?

Had UC been more agressive in defending this innocent employee, much of the awefull publicity and this lawsuit could have been avoided.

Certainly LM/UT would not behave in this fashion!
 
Paying for these guys' legal defense is an outrage!
 
UC paying for Walp and Doran's defense is not nearly as "egregious" as paying for Nanos' defense, all the while continuing to pay Nanos a nice, fat $245,000 / year reward for his f*ck ups.

Lockheed Martin: we're ready for you.
 
Hookem Horns!
 
Hey Lilly. You go girl!!
 
Good for you Lilly. I'm behind you 100%.
 
You go girl! I hope the first thing you buy with your lawsuit money is a mustang!
