Article about Sloan vs. Truong in todays's New York Times:

I have filed a lawsuit against Truong, Polgar, USCF et al after it was proven that 2464 obscene posts impersonating me has been posted to the chess newsgroups. Here is the Mottershead Report proving this.

The case has been filed in the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York at 500 Pearl Street, New York NY 10007.

The case number is 07 CIV 8537

The judge is Judge Denny Chin

The Magistrate Judge is Judge Frank Maas

The suit seeks to overturn the results of the 2007 USCF Election on the grounds of election fraud and to reinstate the directors who were thrown out in that election until a new election can be held. The complaint alleges that defendants Susan Polgar and Paul Truong impersonated Sam Sloan and sent out three thousand obscene and pornographic newsgroup postings during the election campaign in order to discredit Sloan and get themselves elected so as to take over the USCF Finances.

Latest Developments in New York Board of Elections Corruption Case: Hard Disk Data Recovery Expert

I have had a serious problem with my hard drive, which crashed in October, 2006. As the hard drive contained books that I had written, it was necessary to recover it. I took it to all kinds of experts and none of them could do anything about it, plus I even had to pay.

I wish to report that I have finally been able to recover most of the data on my hard drive.

For this I have to thank Ephraim Hirshberg and his company, Atomic Bytes. I was referred to him by J&R Computer World, where I had purchased my computer in 2002.
