I seriously suspect, though, that the Tuttle Group is going to be as surprised as anyone else to learn that they promised to sponsor some anime convention and then were so enraged about Vig Mignogna groping all of Ron Soye's personal friends and roommates that they then threatened to cancel it.
That's one thing that has perplexed me for a bit. Why the fuck would a mortgage lender sponsor an anime convention? The marketing angle doesn't make sense. Weebs are a relatively broke or at least spartan living demographic. They don't spend big money on houses. A portion of them will never even own a house.

This isn't like slapping your logo on the side of an IMSA car where at least you can argue that the target demographic is relatively wealthy. It's an anime convention. And why would Ron have anything to do with that process? That's the marketing guy's job.

Vic's case is that Ron tortiously interfered with his contract with KamehaCon, among others.
True. But at least for this round of lawsuits, the only question is whether he did that. The question of whether Tuttle is directly or vicariously liable for it won't be on trial. Yet.

BHBH will, however, no doubt want to have copies of any emails that Ron sent to or received from any of the cons where he's allegedly committed T.I. with Vic's contracts. Tuttle/Fairway can thank Ron when they get that inevitable subpoena.

I doubt the Judge will allow Casey to serve as a witness on what could be a paralegal error and it would probably look bad on Ty to ask for it but that doesn't mean it's any less hilarious and further evidence that his response was extremely rushed and poorly done (as if we needed more)!
just call it like it is. Casey might actually be more incompetent than russel greer.

Ron was probably just using his companies name to give some legitimacy to the sponsorship inquiry. I wouldn't be surprised if they had no idea he was using the company name this way. It was never a genuine sponsorship offer.

If that's true, it would probably give further credibility to them planning this all ahead of time. Not planned very well, but planned nonetheless.

The timing is also fascinating. Why would they sponsor an anime con right before every single one of Ron Soye's close, dear, personal friends, in some case even roommates, all somehow coincidentally simultaneously accused some guest there of raping and murdering them.

Only then to threaten to cancel said sponsorship unless they fired that nasssty, nasssty, Mignogna.

It's so strange that one is inclined to ask why the Tuttle Group would involve itself in this.

I mean, Ron Tuttle, I mean Ron Toye, their Production Manager, surely was telling the truth about that, right? The Tuttle Group really did do this, didn't they?

Ron couldn't have just lied, could he have? He couldn't possibly be this stupid, could he? No way. He's :) a really :) smart guy :) :) :) :)

I'm curious to see who and how this ties in to the whole Iago thing since that's exactly the type of hands-clean/behind the scenes subterfuge Iago is claimed to engage in.

ANN is still on the platter, but I'm sure they don't want to site a website that's been edited multiple times for inaccuracies and flat out lying... oh wait.

The three other friends he mentions. "But... they told me Vic had raped them! How could I doubt such a heinous accusation?"

I'm forgetting, Ron was confirmed to not be Iago or Igor, right?

It will be interesting what other texts come out tonight. He does mention his business partner, I'm not sure the Tuttle Group could get out of it if multiple agents and employees are involved and in official capacity.

ANN has always been a target for Ty. However, they are based in Canada are they not?
True, but if they can't get jurisdiction in Texas, then they have to fight defamation under Canadian law. Spoiler alert: Canada doesn't have a first amendment. So they can either get fucked under Texas jurisdiction, or Vic can pay more to fight an easier battle in Canada.
