I take full responsibility for the truth of the following facts, as they were done in the presence of my attorney.

A CAUTIONARY TALE TO THOSE CONSIDERING DOING BUSINESS WITH WORCESTER ATTY. JOHN M. GOGGINS ON WACHUSETT ST.:

This incident that occurred in the halls of Worcester, MA Probate Court on Monday, December 14th, 2009.

This regards some discriminating and inappropriate comments made to me by Attorney John M. Goggins. Mr. Goggins was in the role of legal counsel for my soon-to-be ex-wife. THIS IS NOT A COMPLAINT ABOUT DISSATISFACTION OVER A DIVORCE SETTLEMENT; MY WIFE AND I ARE FINE WITH THE TERMS AND SHE AND I GET ALONG FINE.

As we awaited our hearing, Goggins was trying to re-work some numbers with my attorney, relative to pension payouts upon my retiring. My attorney threw out a hypothetical scenario and stated "Let??s say that my client retires around age 65 and lives to about age 80??, at which point Goggins interrupted with this quote: ??You think this guy is going to make it to 80? LOOK at that POT BELLY!?

My attorney at that time ended the conversation, as I commented to Goggins about his unprofessionalism. As I thought about it and stewed about it, I realized how offensive and what a violation of my human rights and dignity that was. Within a few moments, Goggins attempted to offer up a quasi-apology, though it was clearly not on the merits of the wrongness of the comment, but because he realized that as a lawyer, acting within the scope of his job, he had screwed up. I snapped at him that I would NOT accept such an apology.

His comment was an attempt to speculate on my early demise based on what he felt was a weight issue that was visually unsatisfactory to him. It was a personal attack based in nothing but mean-spirited intent.

I do live with a chronic illness, Diabetes type II, and as a result I struggle with fluctuating weight issues.
Goggins was attempting to discriminate against me based upon my genetics and appearance, in hopes of gaining leverage for his case. This occurred in a public building and during judicial-system related activities.

I contacted the Overseers of the Bar in Boston and spoke with a representative. She indicated she would contact him. I pointed out that in the Massachusetts Rules Of Professional Conduct guide, rule # 4.4 deals with Respect for the Rights of Third Persons, and states, ??A lawyer shall not use means that have no substantial purpose other than to embarrass, delay, or burden a third person?? Further, the United States Code Ttile 18 Subsection 1514 (c) defines HARRASSMENT, in part, as "a course of conduct directed at a specific person that causes substantial emotional distress in such a person and serves no legitimate purpose." His statement clearly shows a violation of these.

I AM AWAITING RESOLUTION THROUGH SEVERAL DIFFERENT ORGANIZATIONS AND INDIVIDUALS.
