E-Mail Feud Between The Video Rental Store And Lawyer Takes A Sad Turn

Travis J. I. Corcoran, who's been posting e-mails in a feud with attorney Robert Tourtelot, says he's going to stop now, after being informed that Tourtelot, who's advancing in years, may not be in possession of all his faculties:

Travis J. I. Corcoran, who's been posting e-mails in a feud with attorney Robert Tourtelot, says he's going to stop now, after being informed that Tourtelot, who's advancing in years, may not be in possession of all his faculties:

I have recently been approached via email by someone who is quite close to Mr. Tortelot, and has expressed concern that Mr. Tourtelot is getting on in years, and is acting in a way that does not reflect the professionalism and care that he once took in his craft.

In light of that fact, further posts in this thread would not be "speaking truth to power", but would just be cruelty to someone who needs compassion more than mockery - and would be cruelty to his family, who know that he has been a good man for decades.

I'm therefore discontinuing this thread, and wish Mr. Tourtelot and his family the best.
