I spent two years and tens of thousands of dollars defending myself, my wife and my company from Scott Bundgaard’s absurd claims of a ‘conspiracy’ against him. From Day One, we told Mr. Bundgaard his claims were false and that he would never see a penny from us to settle his bogus lawsuit. On Friday, Mr. Bundgaard dropped his lawsuit and walked away – having proved nothing and having received absolutely not a penny from me or from the City of Phoenix.

After voluntarily dropping his lawsuit, Mr. Bundgaard sent out a press statement claiming victory. I want to congratulate him for his historic win, along the lines of Napoleon’s victory at Waterloo, Tom Dewey’s triumph over Harry Truman and the Arizona Cardinals’ many Super Bowl championships. Best of luck to you, Scott. I’m sure your family and friends are very proud.
