The gentleman you see here just served us with a subpoena. If you look closely, you can see Zac in the background, watching the action through a window. I asked the guy if he wanted me to run so that he could give chase. You know, make things more interesting. He said, “You watch too much TV.”
The subpoena is related to a suit that attorney Scott Clearman filed against Stream Energy. You remember Scott Clearman, right? He claims Stream is a pyramid scheme. Stream Energy’s founder, Rob Snyder, called the guy a clown. Our little company is involved because D CEO wrote about Snyder in 2010, and I wrote about him for D Magazine in 2006. And, too, I know Snyder personally (a fact I included in that story).
In any case, Clearman wants all our files related to those two stories. And he wants all emails to or from Snyder. All of them. While our boys over at Haynes and Boone are working on their billable hours, I thought that here, in this space, I’d offer Clearman some emails to tide him over. Here’s an email Rob Snyder sent to me on December 23, 2010:
70+ person line outside HoneyBaked Ham Co. in Midway Hollow
And here is my response to that email:
Noted. I’ll stay the hell away from there. Like, I’m in D.C. That far.
