Happy Birthday Bobbie!!! - Surprise Party Planned...

Opinion by Consumer Advocate Tim Bolen

July 10th, 2003

 

The Wisconsin trial (cross-examination) of Robert S. Baratz MD, DDS, PhD has been moved one day, and will now begin on July 15th, 2003, and extend through March 17th, 2003.  Baratz will be questioned, for three full days, on his credibility and the claims he made on his resume.  Baratz's resume seems to be a fantasy world of his own devising, as investigation doesn't bear out his claims.

Why the hold-up?  On Friday, July 11th, Baratz will be testifying against a Physical Therapist in New York on behalf of a patient claiming malpractice,  and since he tends to go on, and on, and on, and on, and on - it was decided, by the Judge, to start on the Wisconsin case on Tuesday, instead of Monday.

The first day of the trial, Tuesday, July 15th, will be Bobbie's 57th birthday.  We're planning a SPECIAL celebration, with some special surprises...  He'll remember his 57th birthday for the rest of his life.  I promise. 

Wisconsin prosecutor Arthur Thexton has, yesterday, abandoned one of the charges he and Baratz concocted against Eleazar Kadile, MD, apparently in an attempt to limit what accusations Baratz can be cross-examined on.  It makes sense to me why Thexton wants to limit cross-examination. Thexton and Baratz never thought the trial would go this far.  To me, some of Baratz's accusations, and so-called reasons for accusation, were so wild-eyed, they're virtually indefensible.

Two days ago, Thexton filed an emergency Motion attempting to block a subpoena issued by the Defense attorney Frank Recker to the State of Massachusetts commanding Baratz's State records.  The Emergency Motion demanded (1) that the records not be allowed, and (2) if they are allowed that "Tim Bolen" not be allowed to see them.  Honest to God.  The Judge will look at he records and decide on Tuesday.  What could Bobbie not want us to see about his past?  I definitely want to see those...

I think there's an 80/20 chance Bobbie won't show up.  After all, he's a quackbuster, and they can't stand the heat...

If he doesn't show up, I'd say there's an 80/20 chance Wisconsin will prosecute him...

Stay tuned...
