New Dragon*Con statement on Ed Kramer

By Petrea Mitchell| February 16, 2013 | Comments Off on New Dragon*Con statement on Ed Kramer

Dragon*Con has posted a new statement regarding Ed Kramer here. Regarding the recent discussions around fandom, it says:

The current flood of “information” about this litigation appears to have been taken from the multiple lawsuits against Dragon*Con filed by Edward Kramer and his lawyers (i.e., Edward Kramer’s arguments and allegations, not documented facts). To our dismay, much of this misinformation is being quoted as pure fact despite the reality that a court of law determined that many of the facts and figures provided by Mr. Kramer in his law suits were false, inaccurate or completely fictitious.

However, the figure of $154,000 for Kramer’s latest shareholder dividend was reported by Atlanta Magazine as the amount D*C was ordered to pay, not mere allegations from Kramer.

The statement reinterates that Kramer has had no role in the management or operations of D*C since 2000, which is completely true so far as anyone has been able to determine. It also asks:

We do hope that everyone understands that due to past, present, and possible future lawsuits we find ourselves unable to comment further on any matters concerning Edward Kramer. Please do not construe any future silence on the matter as a lack of concern on the part of the Dragon*Con staff and more specifically, our board of directors.
