DEFAM, Welch moves to dismiss, but it's not over

On Monday, December 5, 2005, Emanuel Christopher Welch will appear in court to ask the court to dismiss the lawsuits he and his brother brought against me.

Welch's decision to drop the lawsuits was reported in Capitol Fax (the version that costs $350 per year) on Wednesday. I first learned about it when Tim Thomas of SEIU Local 4 sent me a congratulatory text message.

I then called my attorney to ask what he had heard. Apparently they didn't receive the motion today until 1:45 PM when they requested Welch's law firm to send a fax copy.

It was strange to have so many people congratulate me at the Yarbrough fundraiser and Drinking Liberally. I'm glad they knew, but it seemed unfair that they had seen it in writing before me and my lawyers.

But there are other issues that need to be addressed. The premise of the Billy Welch suit is simply false. He was indicted and since James J. Roche represented Billy Welch there's no plausible claim of ignorance. This is also the third time Welch has filed a lawsuit during a campaign season and then dropped it when it suited him. I don't know how it will play out, but I hope Welch is forced to answer some hard questions.

Yeah, I'm going to the Daley Center on Monday. It's not quite a ticket to see the White Sox in the World Series, but I wouldn't miss it for the world.

  • If anybody has the Cap Fax text, can they please post it in the comments.

  • Here are the questions I sent Emily Robinson, the Welch campaign press secretary:

    Today I received copies of Emanuel Christopher Welch's motions to withdraw his two lawsuits against me.

    Does Welch have any comments?

    Does this vindicate me? Does it show that the lawsuits were without merit and couldn't withstand being challenged by competent legal representation?

    For Immediate Release

    November 28, 2005

    MAYWOOD- Today, Emanuel “Chris” Welch, candidate for 7th District State Representative filed a non-suit for the two lawsuits involving blogger Carl Nyberg. The suits against Nyberg were filed after comments were posted on his blog and a letter was sent to Welch’s employer with non-factual defamatory remarks. With the holidays around the corner and a campaign in the works Welch said, “My priority at this time is to focus on my current position as District 209 School Board President and my campaign for 7th District State Representative. It is time to move on and focus on the future and the road that lies ahead. I hope Carl takes this blessing as a an opportunity to examine his mode of operations and I wish him the best in his future endeavors.”

  • Congratulations! But let's not party for to long. There is still work to be done out there to reveal the unethcical things Welch has done. We have to stay focused. KEEP THE PRESSURE ON THE WEENIE CARL!

  • Do any of Welch's supporters that visit Proviso Probe believe he dropped the suit because he was feeling charitable?

    Or did he drop it for self-serving reasons?

  • What a creepy statement! Yikes! And this guy is a school board president?? Wow!

  • This goes out to Comin4Ya2, Tired of Carl, Tired of Carl Too, Anymus, UrSerious, and The Real Truth all better known as Mr. "I am a BIG, BALD, MUSTY LIAR" Welch. Welchy people see right through your games and false statements. You are not even able to disguise yourself when you are writing lies and your supporters must get brownie butt kissing points for helping you come up with the garbage that you generate. I am sure you have to write the janitors and security statements for them or is Wallace and her dazed and dumb sister doing all the editing and writing for you. You are a pitiful human being and the people that support you are either dirty like you; a relative; an employee that you promised a job, or are eating from the Proviso Pot of money you have secured for them. Why did Proviso ever vote you in? We were better off with Manzo and Klaycinski becuz you are far worse than those stooges. You make Manzo look like an angel and Klacinski look like the Virgin Mary. You are a modern day female slave.
    As for your supporters you will never get the support that Yarbrough, Davis, Kelly, Flowers, Pasquele, Moore, and Lightford receive. You don't have the legacy that they have, you have nothing but a little piece of the pie. You are still a share cropper, and you still owe the Master at the end of each year. Your supporters are criminals, janitors, and former teachers that don't even live in Proviso, What an IMBECILE you are! While you are blasting others, you need to get your campaign together because it is falling apart. I wonder why you dropped the suit against Nyberg. Inquiring minds want to know Mr. "I can't tell the truth to save my soul" Welch! Why did all of a sudden did Mr."I will sue my mama" Welch drop a law suit?
    Check your wig "Baldie Locks" it is crooked. Also, your panties are showing under your house coat. The people in the community are not holding anything back, they are coming strong and deep to make sure you don't get a seat in Springfield. If you thought you worked hard to win the school board, get ready for a whole new ball game partner. We are coming out the cracks to put an end to your antics. See you in confession, altar boy!

  • I object to Welch saying I made "non-factual defamatory remarks".

    I maintain all my statements of fact are accurate. Welch has not demonstrated any of my remarks as being defamatory.

    If he really believed they were defamatory, why is he withdrawing the lawsuits?

  • Well the Empire tries to strike back.
    Give it up Welch. You have become so desperate by calling names out on the blogger, but your list needs to get longer than the few names of people you have lied on.
    Worry about your political literature, because your head on your flyer looks like an ass. Borrow Manzo's tupee or better yet borrow his courage. Ask Moore for a pimp suit and Wallace "the Tranvesite Principal" Wallace for speech lessons. Both Tommy Miller and Ron Anderson have speech impediments, help them out! Are they both illiterate? Didn't you major in speech and minor in cosmotology at Northwestern. Give it up you Feline, because it is so many people that are against you. Keep your lies going because the community knows the truth. You let them know low you really are. Your reputation is so tarnished. Try to polish your reputation and your forehead. CROME DOME!

  • Carl,

    You are represented by one of the top law firms in the nation; so, your lawyers have probably already told you this (or will tell you this).

    Nevertheless, here is a piece of friendly advice in support of the First Amendment to the Constitution of the United States of America.

    It appears that Welch and his Brother are only interested in "non-suiting" their lawsuits against you. While the lawsuits would be dismissed, there would always be a chance that they could be reinstated at a future date using this dismissal method.

    You definitely may want to insist that Welch and his Brother dismiss their lawsuits "with prejudice and without costs." That way, they would be precluded from attempting to reinstate these actions against you in the future.

    Just a thought.

  • interested reader is right. welch is non suiting the case which means as a matter of right he can re-file the cases within a year. i suspect he will be monitoring your behavior the next few months and will file the suits again right after the March election. just so you and interested reader know, a plaintiff has a right to non suit a case as a matter of right at least once. you can't stop him carl.

    By Anonymous interested reader too, at 12:29 AM, December 03, 2005  

  • Yeah people are not as stupid as Welch thinks they are. We know that he wants to dismiss the suit because of his election. This suit during his election will expose him like the liar and cheater he is. The community knows what is going on. Welch does it every time. Here is his pattern, Law suit--then election-- then he drops law suit---another law suit comes--- another election--drops antoher law suit. He is just one Big Chunky BLUFF! He couldn't handle the lawyers Nyberg has. Lets blow this Bluff out of Proviso in March. Get it together Welch work your campaigns website stop reading the blogger. Get your picture retouched on your literature. Get some hair digitally put on the flyer! Stop worrying about EVERYBODY THAT HATES YOU! It only makes you even more bitter and worried. We see you bitting your nails!!!!

    A little woman came to the microphone and asked, "WHO HATES CHRIS"? AND THE CONGREGATION SAID "EVERBODY DOES!"
