I am posting the following article entitled “Lipscomb Fishing Co., or “Exculpatory Evidence Request” to my website because many individuals are sending me inquiries and e-mails which in my opinion this article answers wonderfully. In short, with any of Lipscomb’s lawsuits, you do need a lawyer. However, to allay some of your fears with regard to the so-called “exculpatory evidence requests” that you are receiving, I think this article will be helpful. Obviously not legal advice.

I have been getting a few request for ideas on how to respond to the exculpatory evidence request letters lately. As previously stated, there is NO legal requirement to reply to the request.
Saying that, I’m of the opinion it could be good to respond on your own terms. As I have previously cautioned everyone – don’t make any false statements if you do respond. Also do not provide the Troll any of the information he is asking for. The type of response I’m suggesting is an adapted Richard Pryor Response. Take a look at the example and tell me what you think. If you decide to make such a response, please edit the letter to fit your situation. So if you have a Linux OS that comes with BitTorrent installed, please remove that corresponding part from the letter. DearTroll
