Tillman filed a formal complaint with the Texas Bar Association against David Poole, Sr. VP and General Counsel for Range Resources (NYSE:RRC). The formal complaint and all relevant documents are posted HERE.
He has also received some press for speaking out against these aggressive intimidation tactics by Range Resources.
These aggressive tactics are all part of the larger PSYOPS operations Range Resources and the industry as a whole is conducting on us. It’s an attempt to silence the growing opposition.
So, Dear Readers: What is it we do when faced with intimidation tactics? From a previous post:
If you are being intimidated, never forget why it is happening. It means you are doing good work, and that your opponents are desperate. It is a sign that you are taking actions which challenge the existing power relationships in your community, and that those with power want you to back off.
Shine a bright light on it.
The meanest and nastiest acts of intimidation, like cockroaches, are usually seen only in the dark. When exposed to public scrutiny, an opponent will usually stop – and may even apologize, or disavow the tactic.
I understand that intimidation can be scary and some of the recent tricks have been despicable. But, don’t give in.
P.S. It just occurred to me that I need a new blog category: subpoena.
