It’s Going To Cost At Least $15,000 For The Jennifer Azadnia Lawsuit, We Need A Crowdfunding Alternative To GoFundMe And PayPal And Could Use Your Support

 

Loading...

Hey turtle riders, I wanted to give you a quick update on our legal battles. As you know, we’re being sued by 4 people right now:

  1. Rian Waters
  2. Jennifer Azadnia (and her attorney George Leontire)
  3. Jamie Generuex (Packleader Pet Trackers, along with 10 codefendants)
  4. Kathryn Narcisi

Waters is pretty much done, although he is appealing it. I don’t anticipate that one costing me any more money.

Failure Swift (Narcisi) never filed a response to our motion to dismiss, and I’m being represented by the ACLU of Rhode Island so that case is of no cost to me.

However, the other two are still going on and can be VERY expensive. I cannot find any insurance company that is willing to insure my business, so if you know of any insurance agencies that specialize in professional liability insurance please feel free to email me at turtleboysports@gmail.com.

With the Pet Tracker’s case we have filed a motion to dismiss, which their attorney opposed. The hearing on the motion to dismiss will be in September in Woburn. So far that’s cost me $2,000. If the lawsuit isn’t dismissed then it will drag on and get more expensive.

With the Azadnia case I’ve spent $6,400 in the last month alone fighting this. The motion to oppose their request to gain access to my emails, private messages, hard drive, phone, and other accounts, cost $3,000 alone. Leontire filed an emergency motion to extend discover through October, which the court will likely allow. That’s another $1,500-$2,000. Then we’ll file a motion for summary judgement and have a hearing on that, which will be another $5-$7. So the bill is up to $15,000 to fight this frivolous, ridiculous lawsuit over a blog that was critical of a wealthy and powerful woman running a public business that had dozens of complaints made against it. And if we lose on summary judgment it will have to go to trial and that would cost $20-30,000. I have no doubt that we would prevail since we haven’t libeled anyone, but we can’t afford that, we would run out of money, they court would place a default judgement against us, we’d declare bankruptcy, forfeit our assets (the blog) and the blog would no longer exist. Then this woman would win, and would get the satisfaction of knowing that she personally brought down a blog that broke the Mass State Police scandals and hundreds of other stories the media wouldn’t touch.

 

I’d really hate to see that happen, because I love Turtleboy.

Long story short, we need help. We appreciate everyone who has donated, and would not be here today had turtle riders not stepped up to the plate. However, I want to create a separate account that is just for legal funds. I want to keep all the court cases updated, and have the history of each explained. I want people to be able to see how much has been donated as well. Currently when you donate to our PayPal account you have no way of seeing how much has been donated. I want transparency and clearly defined target goals for fundraising.

GoFundMe is obviously the most popular way to do this, but they take 5% which is extreme. If you have any experience with fundraising, or are familiar with websites that allow users to see how much has been donated while taking less than 5%, please send me an email.

I love running Turtleboy Sports and I want it to continue forever. I think it’s so important for our democracy to have dissenting voice like our’s that aren’t afraid to expose corruption and say the things that so many people are thinking. But being blacklisted by Google AdSense, Facebook, and Twitter has made it much harder for us so raise revenue. The company simply does not make enough money to continue to fight these kinds of frivolous lawsuits. George Leontire’s goal is to continue to run up the bill on me with bullshit discovery requests. And the way our judicial system works it allows the rich and powerful to abuse the courts like this in order to attack small businesses like mine.

Long story short, please send me an email at turtleboysports@gmail.com if you can help with any of the following:

  1. Ideas for a crowdfunding website where we can raise money and donors can see how much money has been raised.
  2. If you’re an attorney who believes in free speech, wants Turtleboy to continue, and would like to help out pro bono.
  3. If you’re interested in becoming a salesperson for Turtleboy Sports. We pay on commission and you’d be helping us raise revenue to fight these lawsuits.
  4. If you work for an insurance agency, or know one that sells professional liability insurance.
  5. Get the ad free access to Turtleboy Sports by clicking hereIt only costs $10 a month, it makes your turtle riding experience much smoother, you hardly notice it, and if you a few hundred people purchased it would greatly help our ability to fight these lawsuits.

Thank you all for your continued support. We won’t stop fighting for you unless they literally take this blog away from us, which will happen if we run out of money.

Hello Turtle Riders. As you know if you follow Turtleboy we are constantly getting censored and banned by Facebook for what are clearly not violations of their terms of service. Twitter has done the same, and trolls mass reported our blog to Google AdSense thousands of times, leading to demonitization. We can get by and survive, but we could really use your help. Please consider donating by hitting the PayPal button above if you’d like support free speech and what we do in the face of Silicon Valley censorship.

    what about a venmo acct? people can see all that donate to you and it goes directly to a bank acct. its like a cash app. just a thought.

  • WHAT?
    July 16, 2019 at 10:33 pm

    You could have a fundraiser! Advertise it ahead of time. Get a bunch of people on horseback together to ride along a road. They could have signs asking for donations from the motorists passing by. I’m sure it would be successful!

    Happy to support, as I believe you provide a valuable service.

    Please keep us posted as the best venue to donate.

    I do agree with you that it would be helpful to separate various donations – ie blog , lawsuits etc.

    Keep on keepin’ On. Ignore the haters, and let the riders know what is required.

    You rock.

    I’m torn on this one.

    On one hand, I love looking forward to reading the daily blogs. It’s entertaining as hell. All of the information that TB uses in his blogs is 100% public. If his subjects weren’t dumb narcissists, they wouldn’t have become cannon fodder. Don’t put shit out there if you don’t want people knowing about it.

    However, as someone else mentioned, it’s an unsustainable business model and anyone with common sense knew from the get-go that TBS’ days were numbered. Someone with money and/or leverage was gonna get a hair across their ass. And I’m honestly surprised nobody kicked your ass or seriously hurt you after the stuff you’ve said, knowing the unsavory types of people you write about. Gangbangers and ratchets. I’d be scared shitless.

    I do find it funny how hypocritical you’re being about the GFM. You’re begging for money under the guise of “providing a service” while publicly eviscerating other people for asking for help.

    Regardless, I wish you luck. Your blog has been entertaining for so many, as long as they are on the right side of the fence.

    This is getting fucking ridiculous. No I’m NOT gonna say you need to watch your language, pick your targets better any of that. NOT gonna say you deserve it for pushing the envelope. You deserve it because you obviously don’t know how to run a fucking business. EVERY MEDIA OUTLET EVER GETS SUED. How do you not have any money for this? We all donate, month after month after month. For what? Let’s see your business plan. Do you keep reserve accounts? Or does all the money go directly into your personal bank account? What kind of idiot doesn’t keep his business finances separate from his personal ones and expects the business to survive? Prove me wrong but im sure you cant. This is 100% because Unc can’t run a business, and he expects us to keep bailing him out. Thats as ratchet as ratchet can be. I know I’ve heard BTC doesn’t make money on this, isn’t in it for the moeny blah blah out of brets drunk mouth. do any of your writers make money, Unc, or is it just you? This is just a cry for him to spend everyone elses money to keep his lifestyle comfortable and thats fucked. I say the other writers ditch the bad boss and keep blogging and pick someone to lead it with some business sense. I’m not donating any more, and why should anyone? Hey Uncle Turtle, you gonna come pay my bills for all the times I’ve helped you pay yours? There’s a long line of people behind me you owe too. Get fucked

    Hi Uncle:)

    Just a quick, happy little crowdfunding idea here…

    Hold all of the shitposters IP addresses hostage. If they don’t fund your little crazy legal battles, then release them to the public.

    Your LOYAL followers all know it wouldn’t be a veiled threat. It could really be good for your legal defense fund too.

    Yours Truly,
    Fred

    TB,
    As I’ve said before it’s just not a sustainable business model if you continue to write the way you do. You are not careful with your words and it opens you up to this. I know you hate mainstream journalists but theres a reason they don’t get sued. They are very careful with their words. I wish you luck because I think there is a place for you, but I also think you seem incapable of change. Anyway, best of luck.

    Your pal,
    Randy

    • I don't know about that
      July 16, 2019 at 1:37 pm

      Sure they get sued, its the business. They just work for outlets who run their business like a business and don’t expect the world to pay their way, so you don’t hear about it.

  • I see Dumb people

    I for one will be donating and if you need a salesperson check your emails. I emailed you last year, was going to try my hand at blogging, but i would be much better at the sales stuff considering courtrooms are not my favorite place to be and with my mouth i would probably offend many a snowflakes and just cause you to have to fight more lawsuits .. So that being said if you want reply to my email and ill help you get some advertisers as that seems safer than blogging. This ass backwards world needs a media outlet like Turtle boy otherwise this country is going to go to the snowflakes really quick and i for one do NOT want my kids and grandkids growing up in a snowflake world those people are fucking crazy

    How can you be sure GoFundMe won’t work? At 5% that’s only $5 out of every $100 and it’s all free money anyways. If you don’t get any donations they don’t charge you anything. It’s a win/win so you should go for it.

    Get a group of people to stand on street corners with TB shirts on and cardboard signs the novelty alone could get you a couple thousand dollars in a day, 20 people on busy street corners.

    Dumpster junkies can raise money for heroin and crystal that way so can you.

    Try writing your stories with less personal insults and more facts. It’s the personal insults that trigger people in the age of social media flame wars.

    Get evidence of the woman with strange glasses and outfits cheating on her aged millionaire husband or visa-versa and the lawsuit will get lost in the new drama.

  • HELLO ACLU??

      MA ACLU declined. Besides that, the case will be heard in RI.

  • I READ EVERYDAY
    July 16, 2019 at 3:43 am

    honestly I’m not surprised to see this from TB but I’m sure haters will say why is he allowed to beg for money when shitting on every one else’s GOFUNDME. I disagree but I have been a daily reader for years and have donated in the past but always wondered what is the endgame. What is to stop the next lawsuit and the one after that? This is why you rarely see these type of publications. I will say though the quality of posts over the last year or so has dropped off in a big way. It seems like the blogs aren’t written the way they were say before 10-12 months ago. Maybe it’s me and I’m sure I will get hate for this post but I think TB days are numbered. I won’t be donating anymore but I do hope TB can sort this out because they do provide a laugh still here and there. Best of luck!

    You and your writers need to learn how to pick your casualties wisely. Hate seeing you have to go thru this but it comes with the territory. Like someone else said you need to start generating revenue for every page click..even your haters would help you get paid then…holding out hope for you to prevail before it gets far too expensive ..goodluck TB!!!

  • Litigation is a cost of doing business in this day and age
    July 15, 2019 at 8:38 pm

    If a lousy 15k is going to bankrupt you then you are a terrible businessman. When you create a controversial blog you are inevitably going to face frivalous lawsuits. That is a cost of doing business and you should have calculated this as an overhead cost from the beginning. The key to actually making money in this business model is to paid for ad revenue from every click you get. The problem is that stream of revenue is gone. I don’t think this business model works without that source of cashflow. It sucks but if you don’t have some money that you personally can use to fight these lawsuits then you are toast I’m not uber rich but I could easily afford to fight these lawsuits if I had to. You are dreaming if you think people are going to foot the bill, people are cheap as fuck by nature. I guess the ultimate question is do you personally feel the website is going to be able to sustain you financially enough to be able to cover the overhead for needed legal fees? It’s either that or you are paying out of your own pocket. It sucks, I love this blog and yes I think you are getting fucked but that’s the reality of the business you are in. I wish you luck either way UTB and thanks for all you have done.

    In the event the blog gets shut down, why not just start another one? The business has no assets besides a URL. If folk are gonna play the system by filing lawsuits aimed at putting you out of business, why not play the system by just popping up somewhere else? Your following will obviously follow.

    Here’s some ideas I’ve come up with to raise some revenue,
    1. Hire The Rolling Stones, Beyonce and Drake to do a Turtleboy benefit concert with all proceeds going to you.
    2. Invent a pillow that is better than the pillow created by that creepy My pillow guy and charge less than him.
    3. Run for Congress but really use campaign funds to pay your legal expenses.
    4. Become a Nike sneaker model.
    Lastly for insurance try Farmers, they say in their commercials ‘they’ve seen it’.
