EQC Commits Contempt of Court

EQC Commits Contempt of Court

Monday, 26 August 2013 10:45 a.m. by EQCTruths Popular

On 27 June, Justice Collins ordered EQC to pay the legal fees of Bryan Staples, after EQC had unnecessarily dragged him into its proceeding.  The outcome solidified my respect for the New Zealand judiciary.  EQC had clearly dragged him into the proceeding without justification and the judge ordered EQC to pay its costs.

EQC Wastes $158,000 Unsuccessfully Persecuting EQC Truths

Thursday, 22 August 2013 7:04 p.m. by EQCTruths Popular

EQC issued the following press release earlier today confirming that it has spent $158,000 on its ridiculous case against me. .  In late June, I filed a motion to strike EQC’s frivolous claim and, thus far, EQC have not responded to my motion.

 

The figure is a colossal waste of money from EQC and Chapman Tripp.  Of course, Chapman Tripp and its parasitical lawyers are intentionally churning legal bills ...

We need volunteers to act as “Temple Guardians” during the time it is open to the public (Sep 1st – 14th). In this role, you act as the caretaker of both the Temple and its participants; ensuring the safety of the site and providing information and support to those who require it. This is a very important role, as you are the public face of the Temple, and we need Guardians to be present on-site at all times. No experience required, all you need is some spare time and a friendl ...

Do You Believe in Miracles?

Wednesday, 21 August 2013 10:45 a.m. by EQCTruths

EQC simultaneously tells us that we must excuse its incessant and numberless delays because “this is an unprecedented disaster” whilst simultaneously promising miraculous outcomes to claimants, the most unbelievable of which is EQC’s ability to “repair” houses that any sane person deems necessary to demolish.

EQC Spends $6,900 on “Executive Coaching” for Ian Simpson

Saturday, 17 August 2013 3:41 p.m. by EQCTruths Popular

According to the most recent CEO expense report available at , Ian Simpson spent $6,900 on one day of “Executive Coaching”.  Why does EQC need to spend such an inordinate sum of money on Ian Simpson’s “professional development” when the EQC Ministry of Propaganda routinely churns out propaganda depicting him as some infallible being?
