Regular RR readers are familiar with the lawsuit filed by local software company AtPac naming as defendants Nevada County, NC Clerk-Recorder Greg Diaz, and Aptitude Solutions, a Florida software company. For months the community has been asking the county’s Board of Supervisors to reveal the whys and wherefores of what led to the lawsuit that was settled out of court earlier this summer at a TBD cost that has to date exceeded $2.5M.
A key piece of peeling back the layers of the Rood Center onion is the long-awaited deposition given last May by Mr Diaz. This deposition has now become available, and is accessible to RR readers here Download Diaz, Gregory ATPAC v. Aptitude. The deposition, along with the attendant video of Mr Diaz being deposed, is even more revealing as to how business was (is?) being conducted by our county government. I and others will have more to say about this after digesting the document.
Readers wishing to review some of the background may want to read ‘County Dodges AtPac Bullet, but ...’ and its predecessors. These can be found by searching RR (upper left panel) with the keyword 'AtPac'.
[1sep2011 update] Barry Pruett's occasional blog Inside Nevada County Politics makes available (here) some of the Greg Diaz videos mentioned above.
[5sep2011 update] As promised, my thoughts after reading the Diaz deposition are found here.
