Below is the proposed Statement of Decision (SoD) submitted by Attorney McSorley. It is basically her
recollection of Judge Sater's Statement of Decision, which I requested and Sater delivered orally
at the conclusion of the "eight week" trial. Sater directed McSorley to prepare the document and
submit it to the court for his signature. This is common procedure.
McSorely's proposed SoD contains numerous, obvious mistakes. However, most of them are not
simply typos or errors of ommission. Rather they are comprised mostly of highly prejudicial, libelous,
I strongly objected McSorley's SoD in writing. Judge Sater was forced to rewrite the entire document.
Every red line item below did not make the final cut.
