Last September this blog ran a controversial report on what I speculated was a suicide attempt by World Wrestling Entertainment’s Randy Orton. By any name, the incident in 2006 illuminated lifestyle and WWE drug-testing issues that were pertinent in the wake of the Chris Benoit rampage of June 2007.
Now Orton, married and a new father, is said to have had a motorcycle accident, reinjuring a broken collarbone that has been keeping him out of action.
Author Irvin Muchnick’s appeal of the refusal of the Stamford Police Department to release the video of the June 2007 interrogation of Matthew Greenberg, who had made an unauthorized edit of the Wikipedia page for wrestler Chris Benoit, has been officially docketed by the Connecticut Freedom of Information Commission.
In anticipation of the hearing, I am seeking, through the commission’s assigned ombudsman, Stamford PD’s agreement on certain undisputed facts. In legalese, these are known as stipulations. Here is my suggested stipulation list:
The ombudsman assigned to my complaint before the Connecticut Freedom of Information Commission told me that the Stamford Police Department and its advocate, Michael Toma of the city attorney’s office, believe there is a court case supporting their contention that the “Benoit Wikipedia hacker” interrogation video is exempt under the state Freedom of Information Act.
The corporation counsel’s office in the City of Stamford has kindly shared with me the case it intends to cite in defending my complaint to the Connecticut Freedom of Information Commission over the Stamford Police Department’s refusal to release the video of the June 2007 interrogation of “Benoit Wikipedia hacker” Matthew Greenberg.
The Connecticut Freedom of Information Commission has set Friday, November 21, at 11 a.m., for the hearing on my complaint against the Stamford Police Department over their refusal to release the June 29, 2007, videotaped interrogation of Matthew T. Greenberg.
