Welcome to Crumiller’s Hall of Shame! We present our inaugural entry courtesy of Boris Santos. According to his attorneys Lewis & Lin LLC, Santos was accused by multiple women of sexually inappropriate conduct. Read the idiotic “cease and desist” letter Boris’s attorneys sent our client here.
Douchebags like Boris Santos, and their attorneys like Lewis & Lin LLC, think they can intimidate and silence our clients by sending them formal-sounding letters which spew nonsense and falsely wield the threat of legal action. They are wrong. Crumiller would like to thank Boris Santos and Lewis & Lin LLC for helping bring wider attention to our client’s story. Boris Santos was not originally named in the supposedly-offensive post. So, it is especially generous of him to help amplify it, by means of his dumb-ass letter.
We encourage you to read our client’s post, a thoughtful and well-written examination of the difficulties and nuances in finding accountability for victims of sexual misconduct. Her words ring especially true today:
“The process of reporting sexual misconduct will always be difficult, and the process for those on the outside to not look away will undoubtedly come with some amount of pain. That cannot be undone. What we can do is be thoughtful and compassionate with one another, with a very clear understanding that if we are to improve the way we treat victims, if we are to create a situation where we have fewer victims each year, it takes all of us — all of us — making the same commitment to transparency, accountability, compassion, consent, and the destruction of the toxic aspects of masculinity.”
We will never cease, and never desist from, speaking out against sexual harassment. Please reach out to us, anytime, for any help, if you have a story to tell, even anonymously, or if you are threatened or afraid. We’re not afraid. And we’re here for you.
In your opinion, what was the dumbest part of the letter?
Dr. Ferdous Khandker
Our friends over at Lewis & Lin LLC are the gift that never stops giving! We first heard from them in this case when they filed a summons with notice, suing our clients for defamation, after our clients spoke truthfully about Dr. Ferdous Khandker’s habit of sexually assaulting young teenagers. Now, Dr. Ferdous Khandker is being investigated by the Office of Professional Medical Conduct, has brought MUCH more attention to his conduct, and we are not going to stop until our clients get the compensation they deserve.
It is safe to say that Dr. Ferdous Khandker’s attempt to bully and intimidate his patients into silence has backfired spectacularly. So spectacularly that he is now claiming the Fifth Amendment in the case he filed.
We have recently filed a motion seeking compensatory damages, punitive damages, attorneys fees, and sanctions. Check out our motion papers here. We will keep you posted!
