The Industrial Heat Answer

  • REad please my Ego Out editorial of yesterday and of today )coming soon) and make your bets:
    - total war
    - just gain a bit of time
    For the second variant the formulation will be as fuzzy as in the Dismiss document
    the known 4 points.

    Calling this a "war" is silly. If Rossi had not filed the lawsuit, there would be no "war." I.H. was willing to ignore him and write off the $11 million. I do not think they were planning to sue him. Granted, they were planning to publish the ERV report eventually. Once they do that, every rational person will agree the test was a farce, and there was no anomalous heat. That will make Rossi look bad. But he will survive, because there are many irrational people.


    This is not a war. It is just Rossi scheming to extort money. He should have kept the $11 million and gone on to Sweden where he is planning to defraud a new group of "investors."

  • I've been checking it periodically, as I assume others have. This is a link to the site. I will probably not set up an account to purchase it.

    That is not the actual court site. It is a site, pacermonitor, that sells access to court documents, at a higher price than what they can be obtained for from PACER itself. I have a PACER account and am watching for the Answer to appear.


    Pacermonitor is often updated at midnight. Sometimes it is longer than that, i.e., I think I saw a Friday filing not appear until Monday. However, I'm not relying on pacermonitor for this.


    I decided to research what happens if an Answer is late. Mostly, nothing, as long as it does come in within some reasonable time. There is a case where an Answer was 10 months late and a plaintiff motion to strike the Answer as late failed. But the court reprimanded the defendant! Essentially, according to all sources, a few days late would be trivial, of no major consequence.


    I'll still be surprised if IH files late, and they have until midnight tonight (filing electronically). I'm just pointing that while Planet Rossi might start screaming, a few days would certainly be moot.


    The question was when it is due. It is due today, August 5, by midnight.


    If I were a defendant's attorney, and it came up on the last day that more time was needed to complete some issue, I would probably not move for additional time. But Jones Day will know court process and what judges will and will not generally accept.


    If, for example, they filed the document on Saturday (and I think they can file this electronically at any time), big deal. By the time the Judge went back to work, it would be in.

  • Pacer Monitor has the advantage (for cheapies like me) that it shows all entries in the docket, with a short summary.

    Sure. PACER itself allows accessing the docket as well, but there are page charges for the docket. I used pacermonitor for some time, not wanting to pay for docket pages over and over. Then I realized I could request the next document, for no charge if it wasn't there. Right now, the next document is number 29.

    The main disadvantage is that it's not real-time ... Rossi v Darden seems to be updated just after around midnight each day.


    As I have written, it can take longer than that sometimes. Since I started checking for the new document directly, I have had the document up on newvortex same day. Then Engineer48, who is a newvortex subscriber,gets the email with the file upload notice, gets the file, and gives it to Frank Acland, who credits him.... :-)


    All the files except for some early boilerplate (such as waiver of service) are in the filespace on new vortex, with a brief summary, and the files can be immediately downloaded, all from one space. Before I put them all there, they were only available scattered on different sites with no index.

  • An attorney tells me that he believes the file will not appear on-line until the clerk has processed it, which won't happen until Monday, even if it is already submitted. That could be correct.
    edited: Apparently someone in the clerk's office works on Saturday. The Answer has been filed. There will be attached Exhibits, lots of them, not yet filed when I looked.

    From the file:


    Quote

    Industrial Heat and IPH (collectively “Counter-Plaintiffs”) bring this action against
    Leonardo; Rossi; J.M. Products, Inc. (“JMP”); Henry Johnson (“Johnson”); Penon; United States
    Quantum Leap, LLC (“USQL”); and Fabiani.


    What did they expect? Flowers?


    There is quoted correspondence from Rossi that makes him look like a shameless manipulator, willing to deceive and cheat Hydro Fusion, all the while calling his behavior a "masterpiece." I have not yet seen the Exhibits mentioned.

  • Thanks, Abd



    The above are allegations of fraud.


    Quote

    Following the Validation testing, a process was undertaken for Leonardo and
    Rossi to assemble for transfer to Counter-Plaintiffs all E-Cat IP. On June 9, 2013, the escrow
    agent released the $10 million to Leonardo.


    Who was the escrow agent? Frank Acland? Hank Mills?


    Rossi admitting to being a rank crook:


    Quote

    Rossi described his efforts at deceiving Hydro Fusion as a “masterpiece”: “I got rid of the
    European big license I had to sign. I made a masterpiece making them go voluntarily . . . I will explain personally.”6


    More crookery:



    Yet more Rossifiction (lies and crookery):


    Quote

    Leonardo, Rossi, JMP, and Johnson also restricted access to the JMP area at the
    Doral location, claiming that there was a secretive manufacturing process being conducted there,
    when in fact it was simply recycling steam from the Plant and sending it back to the Plant as
    water.
    80


    Also there is this which is exactly what Rossi probably did with "Domenico Fioravanti", another "John Doe" ROTFWL!


    Quote

    They even had an individual pose as James Bass in a meeting with Industrial Heat and express
    JMP’s satisfaction with the steam power JMP was receiving from the Plant and using to run its
    manufacturing operations. Attached as Exhibit 20 is a copy of the business card provided by this
    JOHN DOE representing himself as JMP’s “Director of Engineering.”


    At this point I am wondering how in the heck Rossi ever thought he would get away with ANY of it.


    Uhho....

    COUNT III: FRAUDULENT INDUCEMENT

    !!! <<-- there you have it. The F word direct from IH.


    And the punch line?


    It will be highly amusing to watch how Rossi tries ineffectually to weasel himself out of this. Dropping his lawsuit will NOT be enough-- not nearly enough.


    ETA: I've long maintained that "Fioravanti" was part of Rossi's gaming his marks and that he either did not exist with that name or was an old friend and co-conspirator of Rossi's. Anyone doubt it now? And I was roundly abused for stating my hypothesis.

    Still think this after reading the counter complaints? Write off $11M? Of other people's money? After being cheated by a coordinated bunch of crooks? Not likely!

    With all due respect, no, cancel that.


    STFU, Mary. You have no concept of how IH was operating and why. The $11.5 million was mostly their own money, first of all. Secondly, they realized there was a serious problem by 2015. They apparently decided to give Rossi maximum rope. They might have continued to do that for a time that I could not predict. What they had for their $11.5 million was valuable information and a Licence just in case Rossi did develop something that worked and could be confirmed.


    The valuable information was that the Rossi claims could not be substantiated even with a monumental effort, and that Rossi was willing to cheat and manipulate testing. That, therefore, the whole Rossi Effect line of inquiry was suspect, until and unless there was truly independent confirmation, which still has not happened. How much was it worth to find that out?


    You wouldn't pay anything for that information, other than the waste of your own time talking about it. that is why you are not operating on this level, you, an anonymous troll, are irrelevant. They were, in fact, willing to pay that much, and they knew what they were doing. Their investors are not complaining!


    There is one company involved with Rossi that has not been counter-sued. That's the Ampenergo folks. And ... guess who is an investor in IH? Of course, that was last year ... but there is no clue that Ampenergo did anything reprehensible or damaging to Industrial Heat.


    The Answer and Exhibits are huge. Planet Rossi may claim that Industrial Heat is lying, but ... there are Exhibits, documents from Rossi, and other similar documents. Are they going to claim that they were forged? Or ha, ha, that Rossi like to shoot his mouth off, he doesn't really mean it! Ha, ha, ha.


    Yes, Industrial Heat weaves a story of fraud. Johnson might be sweating at this point. He's the one with the most to lose, probably. Fabiani might vanish. Penon is not in the U.S. IH points out that Rossi has not paid taxes on the money that IH paid him. Do they know? Maybe.


    One point that I've already noticed, glancing at the exhibits while downloading them: the agreement between IH and JM Products did not prohibit IH from accessing the customer area. It looks like Rossi made that up. Signed also by Rossi, it provides for immediate access to the Plant, to remove it, when the agreement period was over. Looks like Rossi broke that agreement. (It was mutually padlocked, but why?)


    Obviously, for this to fly, IH must be able to show what they have alleged, and it will require more than the Exhibits, and we don't know how Rossi will Reply. Rossi has allocated $1 million for legal expenses. If IH can establish what they are claiming, he's going to owe a lot more than that. Probably everything he has and more.


    And nobody sane will deal with him again without insisting on fully-independent, bulletproof testing. He's got a steep hill to climb, if he keeps on.


    Did he ask for legal advice before embarking on this course, telling his lawyer the truth? Did he follow the advice? Or did he ignore it and ask his lawyer to file anyway?

  • It all sounds fairly predictable to me given Dewey's hints over the past few months. Rossi is a masterful fraud and we were just stupid. Would be nice to read the actual documents rather than get it through Abd's filter. Guess we'll have to wait for Frank to post it more openly on ECW.
