An attorney must have a factual basis for alluding to, offering or relying on evidence and that factual basis may not be wishful thinking. There are two requirements for a factual basis — an attorney’s subjective belief and objective evidence to support that belief. It has now been established that no objective evidence exists. Not a shred of it. Not a single chronologically consistent data-point!
On June 3, 2016 Governor Baker signed House Bill 4333 imposing greater accountability on state agencies when responding to public records requests. This includes shorter time frames to respond to requests (10-days for most), the provision of complete and legible records and appointing a Primary Records Access Officer to handle such requests. The new Public Records Law also subjects agencies to sanctions for failure to comply.with the new law.
On January 9, 2017 I submitted a Public Records Request through the Executive Office of Health and Human Services (EOHHS) Website for a dozen or so documents that had been submitted for board hearings but never directly addressed and containing textual content with evidence that was never weighed. Moreover, many of the documents provided direct evidence of crimes (no other is evidence needed).
All of these documents were provided to Board counsel Deb Stoller.
