Subject: RE: News story on Bob Brozman allegations
Please remember that those who may be (or may have been) taking legal action (and their parents too) are almost certainly prohibited from saying anything at all in public while the legal wheels grind in their very slow way. If there's a settlement with the estate, it may be under the conditions that the victim NEVER is able to speak publicly about this.
This means that there probably isn't going to be any public corroboration of all this messy stuff, nothing in the public record, but just because the victims haven't spoken publicly, doesn't mean it didn't happen.
Also please remember that there is probably a lot we don't know -- sometimes a child (and/or their parent) will be reluctant to go the distance when it comes to accusing and confronting publicly their molester. Often children, even when backed up by parents, are not able to produce hard evidence of what happened, and without that, there's no case.
Whatever Bob may have done in his personal life, there's no doubt that he contributed a huge amount to the world of music.
