Allied's Censorship PDF Print E-mail

When Allied Capital learned about John Wiley & Sons, Inc.’s plans to publish David’s book, Baker Hostetler (Allied’s attorneys) sent 8 letters to Wiley and 4 letters to David’s attorneys (Akin Gump Strauss Hauer & Feld) trying to prevent the publication of the book. We have included Allied’s letters and our responses below. Wiley responded separately (we have not included Wiley’s responses). To summarize them, Wiley first advised Allied that it would submit the book to ‘legal review.’ Then, Wiley advised Allied that the standard process would be for Allied to meet with the author, rather than with the publisher. When Allied refused Wiley wrote last November that, “If Allied is unwilling to meet with Mr. Einhorn, we do not see the utility in continuing to respond to your letters on this matter.”

The letters used a number of familiar Allied tactics – attacking David’s reputation, veiled threats and innuendo. We note, in particular, Allied's lawyer's October 31, 2007 letter to Wiley which indicates Allied's general preference to discuss matters only with people without much background on Allied. This coincides with the title of the book: Allied is only willing to discuss the story with folks who might be fooled. The letters show how far Allied Capital has gone to prevent the truth from coming out.
