Axanar David Grossman Declaration and Exhibits

Janet Gershen-Siegel

Jespah (Janet Gershen-Siegel) has been a fan of Star Trek since probably the first set of reruns of The Original Series. She has an eclectic background, including an undergraduate degree in Philosophy, a JD (she practiced insurance defense law for a few years in New York and is a lot happier since she retired from that in 1990), and a MS in Interactive Media, which is a real-live social media degree.

Along the way, she has about a decade and a half of data analysis work under her belt and currently works as a blog coordinator for a high-end wedding blog and also as a blogger for hire (topics include diverse subjects like ad retargeting but also the nursing job market), and has a shingle out to work on social media presence, with a focus on independent authors as she is also a published science fiction author. Plus, she has been a community manager for a large Q & A website since 2002, which is before that existed as a job title.

She was raised on Long Island so, when she is riled up, the accent gallops back out and she can sound like Fran Drescher with a law degree. She lives in Boston with her husband of over 20 years and more computers than they need.

She can always be bribed with pie.

The David Grossman Declaration was added as a part of the recent Application for an Ex Parte order.

There are a lot of documents here; we’ll get through them together, page by page, okay? This blog post paginates so it won’t load a ton of images every time.

And on this page, Peters’s email is dated December 27, 2012 and he presents an etsy link to Van Citters. However, the defendant’s sole comment is a smilie emoticon.

So this page consists of a February 22, 2013 email to Van Citters referencing Star Trek Continues. And defendant states:

This guy just doesn’t get it. Not sure you guys care, but Mallory should see this.

And then the final email in this exhibit, dated September 3, 2014, references a link to the It’s My Seat website. So defendant states:

John, we are always trying to tow the line and I know that selling tickets is a huge no-no.

This is the second time they have done this. Please pass it on.

Hence we have just about four years’ worth of, I don’t know, help me out here, readers, Crusader Peters? Because for someone who has made it a point on social media to state he supports all fan productions, these emails seem to say otherwise. And again I urge all readers to read the documents and judge for yourselves. Because I don’t mind simply being your resource for documents.

So as we always see, we start with a cover sheet.

And when we get to this page, it all becomes rather familiar. For this is the Axanar ‘Annual Report’. This document was created by the defense and made available to the donors to the project. However, when requested in discovery, defense did not produce it. Instead, plaintiffs did. This appears to be a true and complete, unredacted and unabridged copy of the document.
