The following is the transcript of the telephone conference held on August 11, 2022, in response to a letter sent by Saratoga Springs Mayor Ron Kim to Judge Mae D’Agostino, the federal judge who had presided over the settlement of the Tim Wale’s case, asking her to reinstate the case. I think the transcript speaks for itself. Readers will note an aside by Mayor Kim about dropping the city’s insurer, Travelers Insurance.
As the transcript shows, Mayor Kim continues to believe that Travelers Insurance, a multi-billion-dollar corporation, would allow Accounts Commissioner Dillon Moran to influence their handling of this case.
I spoke to a number of attorneys about Judge Mae D’Agostino. They were universal in praise of her both as a judge and in her previous career as an attorney specializing in medical malpractice.
