Gary McHale’s lawsuit against me is thrown out of court!

A month ago, I told you I had some great legal news, but my legal counsel – Brian Shiller, who hasn’t lost me one case yet – told me to be silent about it for a month.  So, uncharacteristically, I have done so.

McHale’s action has been tossed out of court! More on Gary here and here and here. Tells all you need to know.

Thousands in donations were received from many of you, for which I am so grateful.  After legal costs are paid out, I intend to donate the remainder to the Six Nations, who have opposed McHale’s “activism” for years.

And, for you to clip and save, here’s the dismissal order. Have a swell day, Gary!


  1. This is awesome news. I’m glad you will make a donation to Six Nations. They sure put up with a lot. Too bad he wasn’t assessed costs, for his wild goose chase.

    That-a-boy Warren and this quote is a beaut!

    ‘Asked for comment on the allegation that McHale is “anti-native,” William Montour, the Elected Chief of Six Nations, refused, saying only, “I don’t comment on stupid asshole’s positions.” –

    That’s good news. Congratulations.

    Just curious:

    Why did your lawyer advise you to keep the news of the dismissal quiet for a month?

    So MacHale abandoned the suit? A good thing to know for those he’s threatened in the past. Also good to know he was taking it through small claims court. The amounts involved are a lot smaller and you can more easily defend yourself without recourse to a lawyer. Not that I am recommending that.

  6. Congratulations:
    You have joined an exclusive club with only two members. Turtle Island News and yourself. We are the only media to beat McHale at his own court house games! McHale’s attempt to sue Turtle Island News over two years ago met the same fate. He lost. We have seen other First Nation media afraid of court actions negotiate resolutions with McHale allowing him to write columns in their newspapers. I believe that is part of the game to take media to court and try to promote himself. We fought it. You fought it. McHale lost.
    Again congratulations. No wonder the sun is shining today.

    McHale abandoned the suit because he had no case to begin with. Everything Warren said about him was verifiably true!
