Simi Valley, CA (PRWEB) December 23, 2005
Gotglued.com is pleased to report the receipt of a $10,000 holiday gift contribution from Shoji Kiyohara of Tokyo, Japan, to assist Bob Dougherty in his legal fight to hold Home Depot accountable. A lawsuit has been filed and is being handled in the Federal Courts of Denver, Colorado (Case #1:05-CV-02337-WDM).
Remember Bob Dougherty? He’s the man who says he “gotglued” to the toilet seat at Home Depot two years ago. Bob made the decision to go public with his embarrassing experience, and stand up to this giant company by suing them for what he calls their failure to come to his aid. Bob says his health and safety was jeopardized in their Louisville, Colorado, store.
Gotglued.com recently announced the launching of a web site in honor of Bob Dougherty and his courage of sharing this embarrassing and horrific experience. We are pleased to accept and forward donations to help Bob defray the legal costs. His attorney Mark Cohen has agreed to handle this lawsuit on a contingency basis. There are still significant legal costs that need to be addressed and are very expensive for Bob who is a retired Navy Vietnam Veteran with limited financial resources. Bob plans to donate a portion of any proceeds he might recover after his legal expenses are paid to the American Heart Association and the American Diabetes Association.
Larry Borovay, the founder of Gotglued.com, stated that “This generous donation from Mr. Kiyohara re-affirms my belief in people and in their ability to empathize with those in need, a lesson in faith that I learned from Buddy Ebsen. I had the pleasure of managing and marketing this famous entertainer’s artworks before his death.” Larry created his website to encourage others to share their humiliating experiences as a means of putting these experiences behind them and getting on with their lives.
If you want to make a donation, want to learn more about Bob Dougherty and his most embarrassing experience or if you’re curious about Larry Borovay’s crusade to free us from the stigma of our own highly personal “embarrassing moments,” go to Gotglued.com.
