After a thousand hate comments from sunnycali, eleve, and others, we get some real logical thinking from the court. The judges overturned Scotts ruling that was fueled by hate and predjudice for Dr. Bergstrom. Where are you now haters? Where is your voice? Those of us that support our friend know that this was a sham..a set-up...the character murder of a man who helped so many...only to be brought down by a drunken woman that has had so many DUIs that you can't count them all. Was she a victim? No...she was an accomplice! Shame on you BR. Get the wheels back on the road Carl.

Tonight's local news aired an attempt at Carl Bergstroms bail reduction (Feb 16 12). It is a travesty he was denied, but I am heartened that his loyal supporters are going to raise the $7500K neeeded. Richard Rosen, his new lawyer, is the very best for him. I was quite active on Topix in only positive ways during the previous trial. If letters to Judge Scott will help at all, let us all who support and believe Bergstrom should be freed while pending his new trial this March write and protest this obvious set-up. I will do anything I can to assist him. I personally received many nasty comments on Topix from clueless people who envied his talented brilliance as a physician, his humanity,respect for people in pain , and how he always helped me become healthy and vibrant again through his excellent perception and medical skills.Never an inappropriate comment from him - only caring respect and compassion. And superior medical care.

Hey, where are all azzhole "deep thinker" leftist anti Bergstrom gossip posters that convicted Bergstrom before his trial was even over? Cat got your tongue? Foot in your mouth? Or are are you pissed because the Appeals Court overturned his conviction?

Come on motor mouths, let's hear how much smarter you are than the Appeals Court judges...

Its ridiculous that his bail was set so high. He's hardly a flight risk and they are using an increased bail as punishment for the appellate courts decision.

Thanks to everyone for the support for Carl. I'm not saying he's an angel, but the way this all went down will be revisited in the new trial by a competent attorney. I hope they record the depositions of JD1-3 for future reference. Now that the full story is better understood, this should be a fair trial on a level playing field.

Either way, thr FIX IS IN. The re-trial of carl berstrom seems to have all odds against him. He was an extremely high profile dr.- and the techninical reasons for a 2nd chance are just that - technical. I hope while in prison they have used his brilliant medical skills. As noted before, he detected cancers & other illnessess before it was too late. Highly percecptive, cutting edge medicine. I do not know or necessarily believe the verdict - as I was always treated with the utmost respectful care as his patient. Human nature is a strange thing, however. Perhaps, it will be proven he did far less than alleged. Watching the new judge was notan optimistic experience- but then, this is serious business.I am still truly perplexed by the "details." So his brilliant defense attorney, prayer, and the highest good will play out. I truly hope, from what I know, carl will be free and made whole soon.

Really people..this is disgusting. You weren't there and Craig Bergstrom and his friends were drug dealers to a many Carmel residences for many years. Is it really about the RAPE or the fact that people can't get their prescritpions from Dr. Creep anymore....Makes me sick, he is a predator and took advantage of woman for his own personal satisfaction..

I am a left wing democrat who thinks Carl is a giant piece of crap! He is a loser of the first order! But, I have been ripped off by JD1 and have now been threatened three times by her with making false accusations to police. The latest threat was for a restraining order. I have not threatened or harassed her in any way except to ask for a refund of the money I paid her for services she refuses to deliver. I don't know what happened that night, but I have been wittiness to her shocking comfort with lying. These two losers magically found each other late one night and now they are both in hell. The whole disaster is out of my life for good!

Multiple victims? Please post the police reports of the victims beyond JD1. Can't find them? The reason for this is that they don't exist. JD2 and JD3 will not even testify at the up oming trial (remember, the appealet court overturned the conviction) for fear that they will be asked to tell the truth this time and their testimonies will ultimately result in their arrest for purjury. Dream Weaver, I trust that you will follow the trial closely this time with an open mind to the facts and not the emotional bile that you spewed in your post. Now that Dr. Bergstrom has a competent attorney and supporting legal professionals along with dozens of friends who have researched this for over three years, it should be a balanced trial. Let's see what happens.

Just curious, what kind of services did you pay for? Are you in the habit of buying services from psyco women? If so, I have a list for you! Why don't you be a man instead of a coward and do the right thing and testify. Obviously, you had some sort of relationship with her where you could have been Carl. It could have been your father, brother, son or friend.

Dear Bewildered,
If you have information regarding JD1, the accuser, please contact Mr. Richard Rosen in Carmel. Many others have done so. This woman needs to be stopped and she needs to face the fact that her actions have hurt so many people. Please help everyone by sharing your experience with Mr. Rosen. Thank you.

Excuse me. He pleaded no contest. He has to register as a sex offender for the rest of his life. I have never been a hater. I am someone who believes in protecting women not predators. Predators choose troubled women to be their victims. I can only hope that Bergstrom learned something while in prison. You should be ashamed for your lack of compassion. I know many cases where great harm was done by this practicing addict that was not stopped by his fellow doctors. We all knew him as Dr. Drug. Not to mention the patients that never got their money back when he was arrested. No attempt at restitution was ever made. I fear for the safety of other women unless he has changed his ways.

Carl is the victim here, not Bernadette... And her name will become public once we start the civil trial. I hope she understands that she is NOT PROTECTED under the "Jane Doe" status in civil court and the TRUTH WILL BE TOLD. She has been after money all along because her ex dumped her and had a kid with some other chick while they were married. She is whacked, no doubt about it, but I feel sorry for her daughter. She is the one that is going to have to deal with the fact that her mother is crazy and a dumb drunk and so is her dad... Neither one of them has custody of her because of their multiple DUI's. How is that??? I can hardly wait until people like you need a doctor... Carl is the best and it is criminal what people like you did to him and his patients. People have DIED because of what happened to him. How you people sleep at night is beyond me??? However, he is doing great, thank you!!!

Bernadette, are you really sure you want to go through with this civil suit? In the end the only thing you will get are a few pieces of silver. Judas was thinking the same thoughts. Didn't turn out so well for him.
