TKC BREAKING NEWS!!! KANSAS CITY TRANSIT ACTIVIST CLAY CHASTAIN STAYS WINNING IN LEGAL MOVE AGAINST POLITICO LADY AND FACEBOOK DEFAMATION!!!
This is important for many reasons but mostly because a Kansas City Facebook story during election time from a socialite politico lady is now, apparently a Federal Case. Checkit:
Federal court rules in Chastain's favor in his defamation suit against Anne Hodgdon
The United States District Court (Kansas) has denied Anne Hodgdon's motion to dismiss Clay Chastain’s lawsuit against her for defamation.
The little guy can be thankful we have an honorable federal court system in which to seek justice when the powerful try and bury the powerless with bottom dealing.
Mrs. Hodgdon claimed in a 2015 Facebook post that I sexually assaulted, if not tried to rape, her in 1994, though she never filed a police report at the time. She said it was time to tell her “personal Clay Chastain story” as the “very unstable Clay Chastain ‘legally messes with’ Kansas City’s great Mayor Sly James.”
But the not very nice and not very stable Mrs. Hodgdon forgot to do her homework before she concocted her false and malicious lie.
Mrs. Hodgdon claimed, in vivid detail, how I lured her to my home to sexually assault her using our mutual love for public transit as my prop. Once there, she said I showed her pages and pages of beautiful hand drawn sketches of streetcars plans I was getting ready to submit to the city. Uh huh, that’s right.
The inconvenient truth for Mrs. Hodgdon is that I had no streetcar plans or any interest in public transit whatsoever at the time of the alleged incident she described on her Facebook post. I would not design a light rail plan until 1998 and did not design a streetcar plan until 2001!
Mrs. Hodgdon claimed that while I was attempting to sexually assault her, she “kneed me (in the groin no doubt) as hard as she could.” Uh huh, that’s right.
At that time I was a trained athlete and Mrs. Hodgdon was 7-years older than I.
Mrs. Hodgdon claimed that after she kneed me she escaped and I came running after her like “an enraged madman.” Uh huh, that’s right.
No man does any running after being kneed in the groin. What’s more, no grown man that has joint custody of a daughter (my eldest was 8-years old at the time of alleged incident and living with me) is going to try and rape a woman and then chase her down the street enraged like a madman.
Of course Mrs. Hodgdon has hired a powerful big time Kansas City lawyer to defend her, and I am going up against him pro-se! But the United States Federal Judge was unmoved by his stature, distortions and deliberate attempts to mislead the court.
This is what the court had to say in brief…
(1) “ The court finds defendant’s (Anne Hodgdon) arguments unpersuasive.”
(2) “ Plaintiff (Clay Chastain) properly states a claim of libel of a public figure.”
(3) “ The court denies defendant’s motion to dismiss.”
Because I have been relentless in challenging the political leadership of Kansas City’s establishment, some in the establishment have been relentless in their dirty underhanded schemes to try and stop me. "Clay Chastain"
