As most of our readers know The Bob & Steve Show was notified former candidate for sheriff in Salem County, Bob Gant, filed a Notice of Tort Claim because he apparently plans to sue us, and 18 other entities and/or persons, for a total of $350,000.
As far as The Bob & Steve Show is concerned this is nothing more than Gant attempting to crush our First Amendment rights. As to everyone else named in Gant’s notice, if he goes through with this and files an actual lawsuit it will likely go down as one of the most frivolous lawsuits ever filed in New Jersey. Really, this whole thing is just Gant being a sore loser.
There was another Notice of Tort Claim filed that folks are now learning about. According to NJ.com Katie Brennan, “who accused a former top Murphy staffer of raping her in 2017, is seeking damages from the state of New Jersey for inflicting ‘emotional distress’ by employing her accused rapist,” has filed a Notice of Tort Claim and accused “the administration of acting “unlawfully, intentionally, negligently and/or with reckless indifference” when it hired and retained Albert J. Alvarez.”
NJ.com provided a link to Brennan’s Notice of Tort Claim here.
There are some very big differences between these two tort claims.
First, Gant claims to be suffering “both mentally, physically and emotional and economically as a result of the aforementioned breach.” Frankly, I think the only thing Gant suffers from is being a sore loser and even made fun of his “suffering” in a blog post yesterday. Brennan, in her Notice of Cort Claim states she is suffering from “emotional distress and other damages.” I absolutely, positively believe her!
Second, what happened to Katie Brennan is real and should never happen to anyone. Frankly her attacker is lucky she isn’t one of my sister because I guarantee if she were I would have hunted her attacker down by now, and I’m sure Bob would be with me. What happened to Gant was nothing, he’s just mad that he was unable to bully people into not talking about the fact he beat up a defenseless man in the old jail.
Finally, look at the signatures of the certifications. Brennan’s lawyer signed her Notice of Tort Claim, as is usually the case. Gant signed his, which tells me not even his lawyer really believes his line of BS.
Bottom line: we hope Brennan gets justice, both civil and criminal. She deserves justice! Gant, on the other hand, is just a sore loser, upset he couldn’t bully people to not talk about the bad he has done.
