Donovan emails: Marty never begged
August 14, 2006
In my August 10 Outtakes – Outtakes – I question a conversation that Marty claimed took place between him and Quint Studer on Dec. 27, 2004 where he begged Studer not to proceed with the CMP proposal.
The following email is proof the conversation never took place. The email is from Donovan to P.A. Ucci – dated May 16, 2005. He tells Ucci that he met with Mort O’Sullivan and Miller Cauldwell (he means Caldwell) at Miller’s office on Dec. 29, 2004 – there is no mention of Quint Studer being present.
I’ve checked with Studer. He confirms that he wasn’t there. Studer did tell me of another meeting that Marty’s brother called together. The brother, Studer, a Catholic priest and an professional mediator from Atlanta (a friend of the brother) met at Scenic 90 cafe. I confirmed with the priest that the meeting did indeed take place.
Marty arrived late, sat with his arms folded, said very little and left early. No begging took place.
