97 11/19/14 (“OTB”) parlor and incessantly playing the video lottery terminal games at the Shoreline Downs horse racing track. 14. At one point during our September 17, 2013 meeting, Alex angrily blurted out, “Money we worked so hard to raise for the kids of Morningside Heights Central is now gone because of ‘conniving Casey.’” I cautioned Alex to stop spewing nonsense and to calm down. I informed Alex that Casey had given me a full accounting of the ride tickets and games of chance proceeds, totaling $45,200.00 and that s/he had deposited the funds into the Booster Club’s checking account at Empire of New York Bank. I believed, albeit mistakenly, that this information would put an end to Ale x’s unfounded accusations. 15. On October 1, 2013, the Club’s Board of Directors had its second meeting. Alex invited Taylor Templeton, who oversaw the operation of the games of chance at the Fun Fair, to give a presentation to the board. Taylor is a blackjack dealer at Shoreline Downs and is also Shannon Templeton’s sibling. At the meeting, Taylor told the Board that Casey had under-reported the proceeds from the games of chance at the Fun Fair, given Taylor’s observation of the operation of the games. Alex also informed the Board that s/he had seen stacks of cash on Casey’s coffee table when s/he visited Casey’s house on September 16, 2013. 16. I was incensed by the scurrilous accusations against Casey, who has been my faithful, devoted friend and employee for many years. I told the Board that Taylor was lying to retaliate against Casey for having divorced Taylor’s sibling, Shannon Templeton. Casey makes a good living as Chief Financial Officer of Pearson Precision $110,000.00 annual base salary plus benefits and stock options. In addition, Casey recently inherited $500,000.00 from his/her favorite aunt, Mabel, who was a well-known Morningside Heights Central High School teacher. Mabel died single and childless and had pinched pennies all her life. She and Casey had a very close relationship, so he became her main beneficiary. Casey therefore has the financial wherewithal to indulge a bit and certainly had no reason to steal Fun Fair proceeds. I told the board that it was completely wrong and in fact discriminatory to accuse a person of being a thief simply because s/he had struggled with a gambling addiction in the past. 17. In response to my defense of Casey at the October 1, 2013 meeting, Alex said I was trying to protect Casey because s/he was my longtime employee and knew all the “dirty secrets”

98 11/19/14 about my business and personal life. At this point, I could not believe what I was hearing not only was Casey being defamed, but now I was being victimized as well. Over my strident objection, Alex moved to commence a civil action on behalf of the Booster Club against Casey Cheatham for conversion of Fun Fair ride tickets and game-of-chance proceeds that belonged to the Club. Fran Farley seconded the motion. Alex and Fran voted in favor, and I voted against it.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
