IMPORTANT EDITOR’S NOTE - Sept. 13, 2013: As a matter of policy and like most other websites which allow users to post complaints, Ripoff Report generally does not investigate the accuracy of reports on our site.  In addition, as explained here, we also have a strict policy against removing reports.

Despite those policies, Ripoff Report has always been willing to investigate, upon request, certain types of reports.  Specifically, if we are contacted about a report which contains allegations of serious criminal conduct for which a police report or court record should exist, we may decide to contact the author to request additional documentation to confirm his/her story.  This investigation is done at Ripoff Report’s sole discretion.

Pursuant to our policy, Ripoff Report attempted to contact the author of the report shown below which originally contained allegations of serious criminal conduct.  We asked the author to provide documentation to support these claims.  Unfortunately, the author failed to respond to our request.  During our investigation, we also learned that the author used a “proxy” to conceal his/her true IP address.  In our experience, this strongly suggests that the author may have fabricated all or part of the report.

For this reason, we have chosen to (((REDACT))) certain portions of the report you see below.  As for the remaining portions, you should regard this material as unverified and likely untrue.

NOW TO THE REPORT THAT WAS FILED: 

Bill Girdner, CEO of Courthouse News Service was accused of (((REDACTED))). Whistle-blower James Murray provided information claiming that Girdner harbored a terrible secret. He says it is  "definitely" fair to say he thought the company participated (((REDACTED))), according to Murray. He says the company cut corners for profit, making up stories and inventing lawsuits to publish on their popular website.  It is alleged that Girdner would (((REDACTED))). 

Earlier, it was stated that Girdner and staff writer Iulia Filip was (((REDACTED)))

Courthouse News Service has a website that publishes articles from the plaintiffs perspective, citing quotes out of the complaint that has been filed. [continued below]...

 

..... What is missing from their online publication is the answer the the complaint. Also missing is the ability for members of the public, or the defendant to reply to the complaint. So, if the complaint was written with numerous falsehoods, their one-sided writings can trick the public into thinking that the complaint us factual. 

Filip & Girdner are expected to be (((REDACTED)))
