Talk Show host wins one day in Court against Net Vasquez and S.S.B.

Glenn Tillett

Last November, talk show host and news paper columnist, Glenn Tillett, sued Lois Young, Net Vasquez and the Social Security Board.  Tillett is saying that both Vasquez and Young were in a conflict of interest situation when they each voted for S.S.B. to invest fifty million dollars of contributors’ money in B.T.L., a company for which they both worked and received financial reward. Were it not for their votes, the decision would not have been carried since the Union and private sector representatives voted against the decision. This morning Acting C.J. Samuel Awich dismissed an attempt by the attorney for Vasquez and Young, to have the claim struck out on a technicality.  The decision will be appealed and the case was rescheduled for trial in September. Tillett was represented by senior counsel Andrew Marshalleck and Godfrey Smith.
