No I have a home in Red River County, so I have an interest in anything that happens there. Why does it bother any of you that I post an opinion here?

Are you two the forumn monitors? You like to put folks down for making a remark? I suggest you worry about yourselves being a bunch of bullies.

they tried their case by assumption.
like they assumed the people charged ,actually sat down a typed something on a computer..
But they could not prove who did the typing....
The judge saw that very clear.
The award was way out of line...the judge saw that.
The leshers only showed up in court with their own word as to how much they lost...and how much pain they suffered....but no proof or cooberation.
The law is very specific in what must be proven in these cases...as the judge determined and ruled so.
just because one feels very strongly that someone has harmed them with words.. it is not proof.
not even to the fifty yard line...much less just passed it

that is why you will not see any counter suit for such from defendants..

That is correct and why there will never be any successful topix lawsuits. They traced the ip to a business the defendant owned but no way to prove the ones they were accusing of libel were the ones posting it. Plus like you said the award was obscene. Must prove to what extent you were damaged and they didn't get it done. Now the Leshers are out close to or over a million dollars and back to square one.

Do you have a link? I have been following this case and knew they lost their award and were appealing. So they cannot appeal this again?
Just guessing like you

Rhonda was always a pretty girl in school and always involved with special student activities. She graduated with me in 76 and is probably close to my age of 55. I think she graduated a year early because she had enough credits. All I remember of her in Clarksville is her running a beauty shop that was about the best place other than one other that gave good haircuts. Her reputation was as impeccable as her work was. I had vaguely heard about all of this and actually do not understand much about it still after all these years. I do know bad things can happen to good people. Understand she moved else where, but hope she will be at our next class reunion. When l0k people left Clarksville for jobs and wall mart left it really hurt the entire area. It is still though a charming little town with a very powerful Texas history. I might move back someday to stay. Property values are really low there compared to Paris. I was born in the old Red River hospital in 57 by a Dr. Pain. Who years later shot himself due to cancer I've heard. Weren't a lot of treatments back when.

It actually annoys me that the couple didn't get their money. What's the point of trial if you can't get what you're entitled to. I don't know the people but from what I have heard it sounds like they were set up.
Shame on all you judgemental people for being mean and nasty. Furthermore why build a new school? Almost all the red necks around here took their white kids out of local schools. Just how long and how effective are you good olé boys going to prevent your kids from exposure to African Americans? There's a big world out there and you can't run forever. This prejudice thinking is similar to Hitler s idea that there is only one pure or good race. Wake up! This is the exact kind of thinking that keeps perpetrating racism. It's not nice or Christian to be so hateful and mean...As well as ignorant.

Did you ever stop and think that maybe the reason that we took our children out of the schools and keep them from the African Americans is because since (I am going to assume you are black) your people moved in, our schools were no longer safe for our "white kids"? When you have that many blacks you have gangs, and all the crime that comes with it! Call me racist if you want but I believe the best thing to do would be "run" as you called it, and let the idiots kill each other out, I mean after all, most of the crime is against each other anyways! process of elimination at its finest! And its not Christian to call people names either so don't preach about something you obviously have no idea of the meaning!

I must say I have to agree with oneofthoserednecks, look back in the old days with the blacks lived in one part of the town and the whites lived in another part of the town, most crime was in the black community and inflicted among themselves! Its not the white people that are giving the black race a bad name, they are doing it all on their own and always have!

Have you not heard about the White gangs or Mexican gangs. Some folks love to show their true ignorance. The Clarksville school district is doing great without you. Those black folks are making it happen. TPND for life.

I have heard of white and Mexican gangs, but you don't hear or see it near as often, every race has a few screw ups, just the black race has given its self a very bad name with all of theirs. And as far as the school doing fine, maybe you should take another look, as far as averages of students, graduating class size, crime, and drop outs have gotten worse since all the blacks moved into Clarksville. Think it doesn't have something to do with it? THINK AGAIN!!! The school has such a bad reputation now that they cant even get respectable teachers to work there. That is why they end up hiring teachers who have sex with their students. They don't have any choice that is the only kind of people that want to deal with trash on a daily basis! If you want to talk about ignorance, take a look at some statistics before you start preaching! check out the crime rates on black on black or white on black crime and see what you come up with! You idiots are killing out your own breed, not that I see a problem with this at all!

Not a good example. Check out all the records of teachers having sex with students. Funny thing is most of those teachers are white. It's very seldom you read about a black one. I'd say that's a fine example of trash.

If your referring to Clarksville your right most white kids are going to other area schools. It seems that it is social economics. When Clarksville lost 10,000 people when all the jobs went away only those who could not afford to get up and move stayed and this fell upon the black communities there who did not have the resources to move away. Also you need to realize that many black families continued to have large families while whites had 1 or 2 kids. The few people left in Clarksville drive up to 70 miles a day to find work and many are dependent upon government help. The elderly did not move or the blacks. These children are a victims of circumstance and nothing else. Most are extremely good kids. I remember when Clarksville schools were completely separate. All the black children had to go to Che-tam and the whites to the other school. It seems the tables now are reversed and maybe it's not such a bad thing. And yea I'm not a black person not that it matters, but do have mixed grandchildren who are just the greatest. So stop the racist and reverse racist stuff. Because people just do the best they can with what they have to do with.
