My name is Mr. Andrew R. Elliot and after diligently working for 19 long years at Pratt & Whitney Aircraft (P&WA) a division of United Technologies Corporation (UTC) in their experimental assembly development Department-955 creating their now current large commercial and military aircraft engines (hr cl#275398), I found myself the victim of a heinous program of harassment and discrimination in complete violation of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), the Connecticut Fair Employment Practices Act (CFEPA), and both state and federal Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) law. Wherein the facts documented during CCHRO investigation #9840272 clearly indicate that my former sick supervisor Grout with his Masters Degree education in the potentially fatal results of my disability manic/depressive illness (MDI) was through a sadistic manipulation of my workplace environment, intentionally attempting to provoke this caring and devoted father into committing suicide over my child care issues. And this deviant bastard almost achieved the malicious intent of his very sick goal!

In fact, Grout did cause a least two of my fellow employees at P&WA in D-955 to commit suicide, namely Mr. Ron Cady and Mr. Louis Verbryke who I am sure also suffered from MDI. And I know for a fact there have been other longtime employees at UTC both hourly and salary that were finally driven to commit suicide also due to their unjust and hopeless workplace/financial situations. In effect, my lawsuit against P&WA was an attempted murder case and certainly not merely about losing my job and that is exactly what motivated UTC to conspire to suppress this vicious suicidal story.

The general public simply does not hear about these horrific events due to UTC’s complete manipulation and control of the media and our governments. I believe the public needs to know how utterly ruthless UTC actually is and that absolutely nothing is sacred or beyond the realm of possibility with this corporation. I have been told thatMost likely Belcan Corporation is just as ruthless as UTC whowhich they obviously utilize to limit their liability and protect UTC’s their wonderful image.

I am now trying to warn the unsuspecting employees at P&WA and all divisions of UTC, in particular their new and prospective recruits about how cruel they are since I found out 10 years down the road fighting them in federal court that they own every state and federal official here in “Corrupt-I-Cut” (and in Washington D.C.) including senior federal judge Ellen Bree Burns and our just departed local U. S. Attorney Mr. Kevin J. O'Connor. These heinous facts suggest it is serious mistake to be lulled into a false sense of security with the feeling of invincible of our youths to fall into the cruel trap of long-term employment at UTC relative to making the inevitable life and family commitments to then be raped of said very precious youth.

And since the U.S. Department of “Justice” and the entire state and federal government has completely ignored the irrefutable evidence I presented them of these multiple client conspiracies to obstruct justice committed by UTC right there in a federal court of law no less, there is only one conclusion to make which is you have no rights whatsoever when working at P&WA or in fact dealing with any subsidiary of UTC in any aspect of their many businesses.

In addition to my federal lawsuit civil action CV 3:99 1290 (E.B. Burns), I refer to the two other former UTC employees at their Sikorsky Aircraft division that our same attorney Barbara E. Gardner conspired with UTC to win them a favorable verdict in federal court. Specifically, Mr. Daniel Peck and Mr. Al Yurevich both of whom that are veterans, reference their respective case numbers CV 3:94 01360 and CV 3:97 01831. The Teamsters union apparently did little if anything to support these men. In addition, the most recent victim of this Gardner/UTC conspiracy that I am certainly not imagining would be Mrs. Donna Jute their former employee at their Hamilton Sundstrand division, reference case # CV 3:01 123. Please note, these are only the three other people I have found so far that attorney Gardner conspired with UTC in federal court. Be assured that there are many other attorneys here in Connecticut (or nationwide) which you could retain that UTC would simply utilize their primary strategy which is to buy them off like the other two involved in my case; specifically attorney Anthony Palermino and attorney Christine M. Ellis. And be assured that there have been many other victims of UTC discriminatory employment practices (sex, race, age and disability discrimination etc.) most of whom never filed lawsuits that were actually good decisions on their part.

And it was none other than Mr. O'Connor's own formidable law firm of Day, Berry and Howard (DB&H – now known as Day Pitney) that committed this blatant act of obstruction of justice in federal court August 2001 while representing UTC when he was in full partnership with DB&H between years 1997- 2002. And in 2002 Mr. O'Connor's very first act in his influential office as U. S. Attorney was to ignore my truthful allegations of this federal crime committed by DB&H/UTC that was the last straw for my family resulting our dissolution in divorce court.

In fact, my own attorney Gardner suppressed the most important evidence that supported my case in writing with what are known as “motions in limine”. In particular, Gardner suppressed the real facts about how I was almost provoked to commit suicide by Grout, which was exclusively because he had illegally denied my psychiatrist's request for an accommodation written under ADA law to merely transfer me back to P&WA’s miserable 3rd shift, specifically to deal with my childcare issues that he notified Grout were my primary stressor in relationship to my MDI. I had worked 3rd shift for the previous 12 long years, first and foremost to be the primary child care provider in our family. And even after I had almost committed suicide due to the resultant domestic violence I was experiencing at the hands of my ex-wife, instead of helping me that demented bastard did use his now very reliable knowledge of my psychological vulnerability against me relationship in my child care issues by continuously attempting to harass me over the suicidal edge.

Specifically, subsequent to my near suicide on 5/16/96 that he almost caused in the first place, Grout dragged me across the carpet with a completely false allegation that I had supposedly committed sexual harassment, which came just three days after I had disclosed to him the scar on my chest from when my wife had savagely bitten me on Easter Sunday 1996 and that she had almost bashed in my brains with a 4 ft. oak and steel floor scraper. This event happened just three weeks after Grout had forced my doctor to return me to work from the bout of clinical depression that Grout himself had driven me into with his illegal discriminatory practices. And the reader needs to understand the truth that it was this evil deviant harassing me to within an inch of my life on 6/6/96 and appreciate how cruel, creative, and effective his bogus accusation was relative to our obviously deteriorated marital/sexual relationship. I am sure Grout would have been completely humored to see that date on my gravestone as he strategically stripped me of my livelihood and sent me out the door in suicidal tears with my first suspension to maximize my stress while being overwhelmed with our exorbitant living expenses.

Please note that all of my ex-wife’s violent behavior and my resultant near suicide was the direct result of the enormous stress created by Grouts illegal denial of the accommodation simply to care for our children that this lawsuit/story was specifically based upon that attorney Gardner completely suppressed to the full benefit of UTC. I will never hold my ex-wife fully responsible for her behavior and I did pursue all of these lawsuits trying to also restore her financial security even after our divorce. And in case anyone is not sure I am still fighting UTC on her behalf

And Grout had made sure I was literally in a suicidal box, since he strategically commenced his heinous program of harassment and discrimination by completely violating the labor agreement when forcing me off the 3rd shift onto the 1st just one week after I proudly finished building and moving my family into “the American dream” in August 1994. This large and quite expensive house located at 53 Willow Dr. Hebron, CT that Grout would illegally turn into now a 14 year suicidal nightmare since he knew I was financially leveraged to the hilt and could never simply walk away from my job at P&WA. To be sure it was the unjustifiable shift transfer in 1994 after I laid it all on the line erroneously believing I had some “job security” at P&WA that drove me into the initial clinical depression since my wife just did not understand I could no longer perform all the functions I used to do during the day, in particular caring for our children. And Grout was well aware of the stress caused by my lack of child care and moreover that I had almost committed suicide because of it since all these events were fully documented in my P&WA medical file that he testified to have been closely monitoring to confirm that see the results of his heinous program of harassment was working as planned.

And the reason why this sick control freak subjected me to this brutal nightmare was due my high productivity relative to the manic phase of my MDI, and Grout's goal of advancing his career at P&WA by further capitalizing on my disability by hopefully recruiting me as one of his supervisors to impose his deviant will upon my friends. This is because I was one of the few people in 1978 that had pursued his goal of higher education for the employees in D-955. I simply refused to do that sick bastards bidding. Then Grout resented me even more because I had some small successful ventures outside of P&WA which I only pursued since he denied me any and all opportunity at work for at least 12 years, moreover he prevented me from posting out of D-555. The one achievement in particular was the land I subdivided on which we built our house. This was my “offense” in Grout’s demented mind that he decided he was going to make me pay the ultimate price with my life.

In fact, Grout undoubtedly did suffer from the “Napoleonic Syndrome” since he momentarily even testified in federal court to literally stand on a chair while struggling to dominate his subordinates in D-955. And the sheer scope of Grout’s malicious intentions for me, relative to his deviant personality that my federal trial was supposed to focused upon is exactly what attorney Gardner carefully steered the jury far away from hearing.

Moreover, the evidence clearly indicates that UTC and their agent Mr. O'Connor and DB&H have repeatedly attempted to provoke me to violence, in effect over my child care issues. The first event was when UTC retaliated against me on 5/22/97 after I complained on 5/19/97 about the denial of my last request for an unpaid FMLA by illegally walking me out the door and intentionally attempting to create for themselves a “threat to safety defense” by producing Grout right next to me on the curb hoping that I would assault him in front of the East Hartford police. And this was no coincidence since the second in command in D-955 Mr. Fred Valenti was also produced on the curb since I failed to react to Grout’s appearance during this staged event. This little-known facet of the ADA which is the #1 defense an employer can use against an unwitting disabled American citizen to disqualify them from their civil rights that I now believe corporate America is happily exploiting and sometimes creating horrific workplace tragedies. And not surprisingly our government that most likely added this defense to the full benefit of corporate America is suppressing exactly why some depressed people are being provoked to “go postal”.

Although, UTC did successfully render me unemployable by labeling me as supposedly “capable of workplace violence” to use in conjunction with their failed strategy of 5/22/97 that left me to experience continuous, subsequent, understandable employment discrimination. The highlight event was when I was terminated from my subsequent (and last) employer Windsor AirMotive which is a quite cozy P&WA subcontractor the very next day after the “Lottery shootings” that happened on 3/6/98 which was my 40th birthday when being told that I “didn’t fit in”. I believe anyone would agree given this entire illegal legacy provided to my by UTC, especially since the shooter also suffered from MDI and coincidently was treated by the same psychiatrist as me. And in fact my own attorney Gardner basically focused upon this directly related traumatic event during my federal trial instead of the subject P&WA lawsuit.

In fact, had Grout come right out and said what his malicious intentions for me entailed. I refer to the message my union steward Bob Manley delivered after Grout’s illegal denial of the FMLA. Manley told me and I quote; “Andy, if you really love your family and when you’ve had enough, you get yourself well insured and you take your car at a high rate of speed into a bridge abutment!” I believe this statement was an intentional suicide suggestion and I am absolutely sure of the source of this quite creative comment - Mr. Dennis L. Grout. And Grouts repulsive inspiration was most likely the grisly fate of my friend Louis Verbryke who committed a highway suicide killing an innocent mother and her child. Of course this suicide suggestion wasn’t heard during my federal trial since Gardner did not subpoena a single one of my “representatives” from the International Association Machinists (IAM) to indicate the truth that after 19 years of dedicated membership they completely abandoned me. In particular, union president Mike Stone who was very close to Grout since he came out of D-955 that told me “Andy your bullshit and your history at P&WA” immediately after the bogus sexual harassment accusation while he tried to get me to sign a waiver releasing his client UTC from any and all liability concerning these matters. UTC owns Mike Stone.

Needless to say the entire IAM union is undoubtedly right in UTC’s back pocket, especially since they did nothing whatsoever about Grout completely violating the labor contract in this viscous fashion which had provisions about them supposedly preventing UTC from violating an employee’s rights under the ADA, CFEPA, and the FMLA. Moreover, the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) that did nothing at all about my valid complaint against the IAM that not surprisingly failed to arbitrate on my behalf after I had been illegally walked out the door at P&WA on 5/22/97. Perhaps it’s time this “association” that in fact is not even a real union should finally be replaced so as to truly protect the interests of the employees at P&WA/UTC.

In fact, my own attorney Gardner completely suppressed this “smoking gun” evidence that in the end I was denied the FMLA and UTC’s ensuing outrageous attempt to provoke me to violence. In particular, the all telling three day delay when P&WA had this person who had supposedly threatened a company doctor and was capable of workplace violence that they simply left walking around the shop floor while they obviously planned their retaliation of 5/22/97. In reality, this supposed “threat” was referring to my complaint about the illegal denial of my FMLA request that I made specifically to P&WA’s doctor when telling her I was going back to my first attorney Palermino to commence legal action, which UTC simply misconstrued to fit their needs trying to justify my termination. I had retained Mr. Palermino in 1996 after Grout’s bogus sexual harassment accusation, who in the end indicatively completely abandoned me when I needed him the most after my final termination in 1997.

In fact, UTC and Mr. O'Connor attempted to provoke me to violence since they had me unjustifiably arrested and then harassed by the State Police on 8/25/03 after I quietly left the office of the Statewide Grievance committee (SWG) while trying to pursue my “rights” claiming that I supposedly breached the peace. I did no such thing. In fact, the State Police destroyed the evidence proving my innocence after I requested it under the Freedom Of Information Act, prior to my court date, therefore assuring my conviction. This visit to the SWG was concerning my valid grievance #04-0041 against attorney Gardner wherein I was “somehow” unsuccessful; one primary reason was that Judge Burns refused my polite written request to be my witness. And when I carefully followed up exactly why this was, I was literally threatened by Deputy U.S. Marshall Dorsey when telling me “Mr. Elliot you don’t want to be accused of harassing a federal judge!” Deputy Dorsey, who of course worked for Mr. O’Connor. In fact, their most recent attempt to provoke violent behavior out of me was on 2/14/08 when Assistant Deputy U.S. Marshall’s Pat Burns and Larry Bobnick showed up unannounced at my door with the standard surprise play, trying to catch me off guard doing or just saying something they could use against me to label me as “a risk to self or others”. They also worked for Mr. O’Conner who obviously sent them to hopefully create an excuse to lock me up or at the very least intimidate and deter me from this campaign of truth to the full benefit of his client UTC.

In addition, the state Department of Children and Families (DCF) “somehow” sided with my violent ex-wife after she had assaulted my son again, when in fact it was me that had called the DCF for their help with our situation, because in addition our daughter was also having her own resultant suicidal ideations. The first horrific assault against our ten year old little boy was when my wife almost blinded him in his right eye by whipping him with the plug end of a light cord after she entered his bedroom by splintering the door and its jamb. This disturbing event is why on 5/9/97 I had begged Grout for the completely unpaid FMLA leave of absence, specifically citing the need to care for my traumatized children which he illegally turned down cold when telling me that “UTC could care less about your children”.

The DCF contracted in writing with my ex-wife specifically instructing her to file a restraining order against me and to commence divorce proceedings, ultimately forcing me out “the American dream” to then live in a basement in the violence of the inner city of Hartford to be threatened on a regular basis. (Although, be assured it is only UTC that would be interested in doing me harm especially now concerning my campaign of truth on the internet.) And the DCF fully supported my ex-wife throughout our divorce with her lawyers bogus argument that I “squandered the family assets” on our valid UTC lawsuit, insuring that I was raped of everything, including recommending that the court strip me of all custody of my precious children. This despite the fact she was simultaneously socializing with a registered sex offender in our children's home and moreover when she even testified during our divorce trial to committing all of said resultant violence. In fact, the DCF in conjunction with my children's own court appointed guardian ad litem attorney “acting on their behalf” would not allow them to see or talk to me for the first five months after they had witnessed the disturbing event of having their loving father literally wheeled out of their home by the DCF. These events indicatively commenced just one week after my letter to Mr. O’Connor/et al in 2002 and UTC did achieve one of Grout's goals which was to finally drive our children out of that house in tears in 2004 that we had been financial prisoners thereof since 1998.

And due to my divorce in relationship to my legal issues against P&WA, I was quite strategically stripped of my financial wherewithal to legally fight UTC and their co-conspirators our own state and federal government any longer. Moreover, they successfully deterred me from suing attorney Gardner for her “legal malpractice”.

The only explanation I have for our extremely stressful, heartbreaking, and interesting divorce was that the all powerful UTC and their influential agent Mr. O'Connor entirely orchestrated it through the 4 lawyers subject to manipulation involved, and moreover the many agencies of the confirmed corrupt John Rowland (and Rell) administration, who in fact was UTC’s own lobbyist just prior to becoming the Governor. I also firmly believe our divorce was designed to finally drive me over the suicidal edge and commit the ultimate act of violence against myself, in which UTC was almost successful again.

And it was none other than Rowland that recommended O'Connor to our criminal in chief George W. Bush for his U. S. attorney appointment who now “works at Bush’s’ pleasure”. Now O’Connor has just been appointed to the third-highest position in the USDOJ ironically to specialize in civil rights violations, despite my valid complaint at the USDOJ Office of Professional Responsibility (OPR) about him acting in collusion with UTC to violate all my civil and constitutional rights. Moreover, my complaint at Bush’s Presidents Counsel on “Integrity” and Efficiency (PCIE) concerning the unethical activities of all these federal officials that fully supported UTC. And most likely our new acting U.S. Attorney Ms. Nora R. Dannehy also works for UTC since she was employed at DB&H just prior to becoming an assistant U. S. Attorney. In fact, she was the local liaison for the OPR that did nothing about O’Connor’s unethical activities.

Therefore, I eventually filed a pro-se federal lawsuit in late 2006, civil action CV 3:06 1607 (J.C. Hall) against are entirely corrupt federal government (in particular Mr. O'Connor and the many other federal agents involved) that did facilitate, finance, and participate in this conspiracy with P&WA to destroy my family. Specifically, to challenge the federal government's “full immunity” and their “sovereign nation status” (Webster’s def. being a kingdom) that supposedly shields them from valid lawsuits concerning crimes such as these committed against American citizens. Moreover, to challenge the “discretionary authority exceptions rule” #2680(a) under US Code 28, in which this bogus law states that a corrupt federal agent conspiring against you with a defense contractor enjoys their discretionary authority “whether or not the discretion involved be (clearly) abused”. And it was none other than Mr. O'Connor and his subordinates that successfully defended the government during CV 3:06 1607 (JCH) prevailing with their motion to dismiss in July 2007, in effect suppressing his own unethical conduct. I believe this entire situation is the definition of unconstitutional to have these corrupt governmental officials conspire against you with a federally subsidized defense contractor to deny your rights, while you pay their salaries with your own hard earned tax dollars. (Be aware that the state of Connecticut is also considered a “sovereign nation” that you cannot sue either regardless of their unethical conduct.)

In other words, according to USC 28 #2680(a) the blatant corruption that destroyed the Elliot family formerly of Hebron, CT. is supposedly legal in this country. And as a resultant indigent pro-se plaintiff who could no longer afford an attorney (much less anything else) I could never compose a valid “arguable basis in law” which is an absolute necessity to support either my meritorious case against UTC or the defendant USA, therefore I was unsuccessful in both cases. In particular, since neither senior federal Judge Burns nor Judge Hall would appoint me an attorney to pursue either of these lawsuits and of most significance they did nothing about these acts of obstruction of justice committed right there in federal court. And I found few if any attorneys here in Connecticut without conflicts of interests to challenge all of these formidable entities, especially on a contingency basis.

Therefore, I am now left in the court of public opinion to hopefully warn all of UTC’s investors, customers, partners, suppliers, and especially their employees about how immoral, unethical and absolutely ruthless they are and in fact you have no recourse against them in a court of law. The “rule of law” simply does not exist in America today, in particular when dealing with P&WA or any subsidiary of UTC.

If you care to review my genuine federal court documents that proves what I say, you can either go to the federal court PACER system or the very bottom of my blogs, in particular my Windows Lives Space blog page http://andrew-r-elliot.spaces.live.com/ where you will find an icon identified as “public folders”. (Please note that you can Google Blog Search UTC or anyone of their subsidiaries by name and find all these numerous blogs.) Within this folder you will find, and I suggest you open two separate windows/pages to read, one document in particular identified as my “motion to reopen and set aside the judgment” dated 2/9/2006 and another document identified as its “factual appendix to the motion to reopen” which contains the 271 pages of irrefutable supporting evidence in chronological order. (Please note that Judge Burns indicatively refused my simply request to post the 271 pages of supporting evidence at my own expense on the federal website obviously because this could be quite embarrassing for her.) These documents partially describe this heinous suicidal story at P&WA and criminal act of obstruction of justice of committed between UTC and Gardner not only in the district of Connecticut federal court system, but in addition at the 2nd circuit court of appeals reference docket # CV-01-9462.

I respectfully believe my peers at P&WA or any division of UTC would be wise to review these facts that were clearly suppressed from the jury during my federal trial and take this unique opportunity I am presenting you to make your own informed decision about exactly what kind of “rights” you have working at UTC; or in reality complete lack thereof. I am confident you will agree with my conclusion about this convoluted conspiracy that anybody could be subjected to by UTC including the participation of Judge Burns.

In particular, I refer to another brief document identified as “Judge Burns ruling” in which she “somehow” ruled in UTC’s favor when citing the least relevant and most obscure evidence of the overwhelming facts that I presented her in my pro-se motion to reopen under federal rule 60B. To be precise I cited 100 pages of the trial transcripts recording Gardner blatantly lying to Judge Burns while misrepresenting my entire case. Moreover, indicative now to this federal judges obvious involvement in this conspiracy to deny me my rights, Judge Burns who also enjoys “full immunity” and a life time appointment accountable to no one, ruled in UTC’s favor despite the fact that they filed absolutely nothing in opposition to my motion reopen – zero, zip, not a word. It took me a total of 5 years to analyze the trial transcripts as I dealt with the resultant meltdown of my family and life to factually describe the act of obstruction of justice and the “honorable” Judge Burns simply ignored this crime committed in and against her court. I believe after reading just the first 20 doubled spaced pages anyone would agree that I should have easily prevailed with at least my motion to reopen, if nothing else because UTC simply defaulted when not challenging it whatsoever. And UTC did not, because they could not dispute any of the facts I presented because it was the whole truth of these sordid events that transpired at P&WA and what UTC is capable of doing to anybody, anywhere.

I did file an appeal at the second circuit as a pro-se litigant, reference docket #CV 06-1764 concerning Judge Burns’ “errant” ruling that she made clearly in UTC’s favor. The second circuit also ruled against me, again citing the stark reality that any layperson cannot present “an arguable basis in law” to support their case despite its factual merit. The second circuit would not appoint an attorney either and they also disregarded all of the same irrefutable evidence I presented them in my motion to reopen dated 2/9/06. Just one applicable document of many being the defrauded jury at the end of my federal trial asking Judge Burns in writing; “Is any element of this courts decision subject to an appeal?” The jury’s own entirely manipulated verdict and decision of course.

Since I felt compelled to pursue these lawsuits because of what a truly vicious story this is believing there was some shred of integrity in our justice system, I am now basically worth more dead than alive. This would be considering, but not limited to the hundreds of thousands of dollars for back taxes (and other crushing debt) that I “owe” for all my property which I lost because of this situation to these same corrupt governments that sold out the Elliot family. Justice delayed is justice successfully denied per statute of limitations law that has now expired. Although the IRS apparently never forgets that a loving parent should back date finance a conspiracy to destroy themselves by this defense contractor, including now exorbitant interest, fees, and penalties. Unfortunately, I did pursue these lawsuits for not only my family’s sake, but in addition for those inevitable unsuspecting citizens/UTC employees to follow that now can only be negatively affected by case law. UTC in particular must be completely emboldened knowing what they have brazenly done to the Elliot family formerly of Hebron CT.

Moreover, I will have to forever finance the federally subsidized record profits that UTC and its investors (some of whom are those same employees I fought to defend their rights) continuously celebrate from the fruits of my youth when diligently working 6-7 days a week developing P&WA’s large commercial and military jet engines that I see flying 24/7, 365 days a year for “truth, justice, and the American way”. All of these wonderful things that the Elliot family was raped of by UTC. I also have to watch those deadwood employees in D-955 that I carried on my back for all those years now enjoying a comfortable retirement while I’ve got nothing. In fact, because Grout had made sure I was always assigned the most critical experimental projects that needed around the clock progress on the 3rd shift and that is why I became one of the most productive and Thereforeno matter what their status competent technicians in D-955. The conclusion being that no employee at UTC should ever think they are in any way, shape, or form indispensable to UTC.

The ultimate insults would be that I have now watched as that bastard Grout and UTC have literally gotten away with an act of attempted murder and a conspiracy to obstruct justice in conjunction with this 14 year suicidal nightmare and all the very stressful negative ramifications thereof (bankruptcy, foreclosures, divorce, etc) that this document narrowly describes. Moreover, that UTC was “somehow” given the Opportunity 2000 Award by the U.S. Dept of Labor identifying them as supposedly a “civil rights highroader” at the exact same time the CCHRO uncovered these heinous facts of my case in November 1998 despite their memorandum of understanding with each other. These sordid facts clearly indicate otherwise. This prestigious award that UTC still proudly displays defrauding potential employees and the public about their real activities.

In addition, both the U.S. and state DOL completely ignored the facts confirmed during the CCHRO investigation and “somehow” determined Grout had not violated the FMLA. I think not. Moreover, it was the USDOL Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP) that fully facilitated this conspiracy by completely ignoring their mandate when not providing me the all important leverage of “leveling the playing field” on my behalf by withholding UTC’s enormous federal contract payments. In other words, these multiple client conspiracies to obstruct justice are exactly what the OFCCP is supposed to prevent and this was one primary reason why I sued the federal government. And the OFCCP’s failure to act did leave me to walk entirely alone against UTC since Grout had creatively divided my primary ally my wife and I with his unverified at the time to be false sexual harassment accusation in relationship to the biting incident and all the rest of the unstated cruel events that occurred between the years 1994-1997.

And the reason why did Grout not immediately force me out the door after I achieved my college degree in 1985, but had to restrain himself to commence his heinous program of harassment until 1994 was because the employees in D-955 had been forced to commit illegal timecard fraud up until 1984 charging most of our labor performed on the experimental commercial aircraft engine programs to the military aircraft engine accounts in D-955. This blatant illegal practice of defrauding the American taxpayers to finance the development of P&WA's many extremely lucrative families of large commercial engines started long before my fellow 100 young aircraft mechanics arrived at D-955 in 1978.

I maintained UTC’s secret and did not investigate this criminal timecard fraud until after I had been illegally harassed out the door in 1997 to find out the statute of limitations under “Qui Tam” or “whistleblower” law has a maximum nine year window of opportunity to file a complaint past the last documented event, which in this case at P&WA would have been approximately the year 1993. Therefore the employees in D-955 were forced to illegally create the enormous core profits at P&WA that were parlayed upon by Mr. Harry Gray to purchase their various current quite profitable subsidiaries to create this huge multi-national conglomerate known today as UTC. Consequently, I helped to develop this ruthless corporation that eventually screwed my family and children over that were not even twinkles in my eye in 1978.

I have now paid with the best 30 years of my life specifically because I was a conscientious employee and a devoted parent that needed the simplest of accommodations to merely care for his children which was used against me in this quite cruel fashion. The one clear conclusion to make is that UTC will fully defend their inevitable rogue middle managers/supervisors no matter how heinous their illegal conduct instead of simply admitting guilt. And I assume UTC and their investors are quite pleased that their high priced federally subsidized attorneys successfully sacrificed their expendable trash named the Elliot family to protect UTC’s wonderful image and huge profits. It's hard to describe the hollow feeling when you cannot even visit or talk to your children and family any longer because you feel ashamed and embarrassed that you failed them entirely because you could not bring all these evil people to justice. My innocent children that were raped of a truly happy childhood and their father who had both his parenthood and the truth that Grout had almost provoke me to commit suicide successfully held against me in a federal court of law. There is no turning around now and losing was never an option for me. I have been raped of “life, liberty, and all happiness” and UTC has achieved Grout’s stated goal of providing me a hopeless and depressing situation wherein I have no motivation whatsoever to start over at age 50 at less than zero to be eternally haunted by these events.

I now plan on exercising my “rights” to free speech to make sure this timeless story of love, devotion, violence, despair, and of most importance the very real conspiracy to suppress it is finally heard at least by UTC’s employees away from UTC’s preferred venue which is behind the closed doors of a corrupt and inconsequential courtroom. Because UTC’s precise goal was to prevent exactly that from happening.

If you’re employed at UTC and ignore these factual court documents and only listen to their contrived propaganda you can also learn the hard way like many of us have after being raped of the creativity and energy of your youth and the best years of your life working at the heartless military/industrial machine at P&WA or any division of UTC generating their enormous profits that are callously used to snuff out your own family. The reality is this politically well connected $59 billion defense contractor/merchant of death can and has made a living hell out of many employees lives and if you sense any distrust or anxiety in the workplace at UTC it is well founded in fact and I respectfully suggest you are sadly mistaken if you think this ruthless corporation has any allegiance whatsoever to you and at the most inopportune moment your family could not be next.

At anytime you to can also “play the game” even if you don’t want to and be assured that without a paycheck you are playing alone against the big boys that play hardball for keeps. I am truly entertained watching some of the tough guys laughing at me temporarily driving through UTC’s gates that are yet to be humbled at the sharp end of UTC’s cruel corporate stick.

Thursday, June 22, 2006

This is the heinous story of harassment and discrimination which I was subjected to at P&WA/UTC wherein facts revealed during CHRO investigation #9840272 clearly suggest that my former supervisor Grout was attempting to provoke me into committing suicide over my child care issues no less. And you and your family could be next.

Reference; Civil Action 3:99 1290 EBB Andrew R. Elliot vs. Pratt &Whitney Aircraft (P&WA) a division of United Technologies Corporation (UTC)
Reference; Connecticut Commission on Human Rights and Opportunities (CHRO) case # 9840272


The numerous documented facts revealed during CHRO investigation #9840272 resulting in a reasonable cause determination on my behalf, that were intentionally suppressed in writing with a motion in limine by my former attorneys Barbara E. Gardner and Christine M. Ellis during the subject federal trial August 2001, clearly indicate that my former sick supervisor Mr. Dennis L. Grout (hereinafter “Grout”) “the decision maker” that orchestrated this documented heinous three year long story of blatant harassment and discrimination Praatt&Whitney Aircraft (P&WA) did completely violate the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), the Connecticut Fair Employment Practices Act (CFEPA), and the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA).

And a significant fact of this heinous story that Grout testified about in federal court was that he did have extensive knowledge of psychology since he held at least one masters degree in human relations, coupled with the fact that for years he was known to literally stand on a chair and scream down upon his subordinates. Anyone of 200-300 employees at P&WA could attest to the fact that Grout clearly did suffer from what’s known as the “Napoleonic syndrome”. And the real implications of Grout’s truly demented personality and illegal behavior, therefore the extent of his sickness and sheer scope of his malicious intent is exactly what my former attorneys Gardner and Ellis while conspiring with the law firm of Day, Berry, and Howard (DB&H) made absolutely sure Judge EBB and the jury did not realize whatsoever.

Specifically, the documented facts at the CHRO clearly suggest that through a sadistic manipulation of my environment, in direct relationship to Grout’s complete and thorough understanding of my federally recognized disability - manic/depressive illness (hereinafter “MDI”) and its potentially fatal results, that he may have been intentionally attempting to provoke me into committing suicide over my child care issues no less. And it is fully documented that at the very least on 5/16/96 Grout did come very close to achieving the unmatched malicious intent of his very sick goal.

Consequently, this was definitely not a frivolous lawsuit or a simple case of employment disability discrimination either. In effect, as far as I am concerned this was an attempted murder case and that is exactly why the utterly ruthless corporation UTC has gone to such extreme measures attempting to suppress Grout’s truly deviant illegal behavior. Absolutely nothing is sacred with UTC and their representatives, including attempting to provoke a depressed and disabled, caring and devoted father to commit suicide over his child care issues, and then subsequently making a complete mockery out of a federal court of law while thoroughly defrauding a federal judge to suppress the following heinous facts of the matter.

And now since senior federal Judge Ellen Bree Burns has totally failed to act upon my motion dated 2/9/06 to reopen and set aside the judgment concerning this blatant act of obstruction of justice committed right there in her federal court of law, apparently UTC owns Judge Burns also. This would be in addition to the fact I already determined that UTC owns our local U. S. Attorney Mr. Kevin J. O’Connor.


Mr. Grout was my boss for 19 years as the superintendent in charge of P&WA Department D-955 Experimental Assembly-Development Operations Group located in their East Hartford, CT. Plant. D-955 is literally the birthplace of P&WA’s many very profitable product lines of large commercial and military gas turbine/jet aircraft engines. Those enormous federally subsidized profits that I was instrumental in creating which would then be illegally utilized to snuff out my own family. It is fully documented by what are known as FAA type certificates issued to P&WA by the federal government that I was without a doubt one of the most competent lead experimental airframe and powerplant (A+P) mechanics in D-955. This was largely due to the fact that I spent so many years on P&WA’s the 3rd shift, working seven days a week, exclusively working on the priority projects in D-955 that required around the clock progress. And I was being assigned to those critical prototype experimental aircraft engines by none other than Grout himself. Grout clearly knew that not only was I one of the most competent technicians in D-955, but moreover I was highly productive which I now do exclusively attribute to the manic phase of my manic depressive illness (MDI).

In Sept. 1994, per the labor agreement and contract, I had notified Grout in writing that I had just finished building and had moved my small family into a new, large and quite expensive house - $2,500.00 + expenses. The Elliot family had achieved financial security and was absolutely on top of the world as we moved into the proverbial “American dream”. A dream that Grout would intentionally and illegally turn into now a nine year suicidal nightmare.

Immediately upon this written notification, Grout moved me off the 3rd shift (midnight-7 AM) cutting me down off at the knees, while completely violating the union contract and labor agreement. Simply because Grout intentionally allowed a man with much less seniority than me to stay on 3rd shift, thereby forcing me to watch him enjoy my position, but also of significant importance this person only had two years experience in the extremely technologically complex environment of D-955 experimental assembly. This man simply could not function alone. I should have never been forced off the 3rd shift to begin with, and my union of 19 years, the International Association of Machinists (hereinafter “IAM”) did absolutely nothing to genuinely represent me and prevent this shift transfer, or any of the other ensuing illegal events.

The IAM union allowed all of these heinous events to transpire, despite the fact that Grout had completely violated not only basic morality, but in fact Article Four of the labor contract. This labor agreement clause, in which two of the laws at issue were cited specifically the ADA and CFEPA that the union supposedly recognized as their sole responsibility to enforce. I am sure that the proper enforcement of Article Four of the labor contract would have easily superseded any personal disputes that may have arisen over shift assignments, relative to accommodation requests written under ADA law. Moreover in the end, Grout also completely violated both state and federal FMLA law, despite the fact that the labor agreement supposedly recognized this legislation per Letter 17 of the contract. The IAM union leadership was without a doubt right in Grout’s/P&WA’s back pocket and did nothing at all to enforce either one of these contract provisions.

I had worked 3rd shift prior to the unjustifiable shift change on and off for the previous ten years, the last eight of which were primarily to take care of our children’s daycare needs. I was undoubtedly the principal care provider for our children in the household. I had worked on P&WA’s 3rd shift which was absolutely no picnic, specifically to stay away from Grout’s extremely undesirable 2nd shift where at least two of my fellow employees had already committed suicide.

Specifically, in 1980 when Mr. Louis Verbryke got himself blitzed on Budweiser and pot and committed a highway suicide killing not only himself, but unfortunately an innocent young mother and her child. And in 1984 Mr. Ron Cady, who was a little more considerate when he sat down at his families dinner table one day, most likely in some undetected suicidal tears, and proceeded to blow his brains out with his own handgun. I never saw a clinical analysis of these two gentlemen, but I am quite sure they, among many others in D-955 suffered from MDI. Although, I am sure that they were begging Grout for a transfer off of his very depressing 2nd shift. Therefore, I am absolutely certain that one of Grout’s true malicious goals with the shift change, was to hopefully force me to voluntarily request a permanent 2nd shift assignment relative to my child care issues, and a consequently provide me with a permanent suicidal state of mind.

And I am of the firm opinion that the 2nd shift (3:30 PM - midnight) was the most undesirable shift to work, because this was the prevailing opinion of the most of the employees at P&WA – including Grout. Grout, who had in fact spent many miserable years on 2nd shift himself. If the reader has ever had the displeasure of working 2nd shift, you are painfully aware of the simple fact that you hardly ever get to see your family and children, and are isolated from society in general.

I was assigned by Grout to foreman Ron Williams’s area on the 1st shift. Everyone in D-955 knew that if Grout wanted someone “ridden” (aka harassed) that is exactly who he or she was assigned to work under. The very first thing I did upon my arrival to the 1st shift was to foolishly make the mistake of disclosing to the P&WA medical department on 11/21/94 that I suffered from MDI. Please note that this was recorded into the very important document that I did and will did reference many times; my P&WA internal medical file. This document is literally a chronological account of Grout’s vicious program of H&D, recorded in these handwritten entries from the various P&WA medical personnel involved, who were assigned to their East Hartford facility that were all fully aware of these illegal events which Grout subjected me to.

Immediately upon this notification of my MDI to P&WA medical, Grout assigned me to clean out PCB contaminated garbage cans. If this had been truthfully explored during my federal trial, besides signifying the obvious discrimination, it would have also made the important indication that Grout was immediately informed and closely monitoring all the significant events happening in the P&WA medical department, and the associated notes being recorded in my P&WA medical file. This disgusting and highly discriminatory PCB can job assignment would continue for five long months. In fact, I had retrieved a document from one of the cans issued by UTC’s legal department concerning the PCB’s, specifically stating that because of the contaminants UTC could not even give away the vintage aircraft engines inside the cans.

Exclusively due to my resultant stress of the real challenges regarding our child care issues, coupled with the highly discriminatory PCB can job, in conjunction with watching the completely unqualified employee enjoying my 3rd shift position, Grout achieved his initial goal and finally drove me into a clinical depression on 12/15/95. Reference the related entries concerning the beginning of this period of clinical depression, made in my P&WA medical file by two of the key players that worked in P&WA’s East Hartford medical department- one being P&WA Chief Medical Director Dr. Jay Poliner on 12/15/95 and the other Dr. Kathleen Mauer on 12/18/95.

Then in early 1996, while I was out of work clinically depressed, Grout completely and illegally ignored the all important request for a reasonable accommodation, specifically to transfer me back to P&WA’s 3rd shift, made by my psychiatrist Dr. John Kelleher that he wrote on 1/25/96, in which you will note the key fact that this accommodation request was primarily due to my complete lack of child care.

Consequently, the entire heinous suicidal story did legally revolve around my child care issues and daycare, or complete lack thereof. And when these illegal events commenced in 1994, our little boy also named Andy was eight years old and our daughter Amber was only four. My now ex-wife Helena just did not understand that after ten long years I was no longer on the 3rd shift, and simply was not available to care for the children any longer during the day. Moreover, she would then leave it exclusively up to me to hopefully secure daycare in the extremely competitive environment of rural Hebron, CT. as she was dealing with her two hour commute to and from her job in New Haven, CT. And we had absolutely no family available to help with childcare.

More often than not, daycare was simply not available, in particular during the summertime months. And I am absolutely sure that Mr. Dennis L. Grout as a parent himself from rural eastern CT. was also keenly aware of this basic key fact of the heinous suicidal story.

Reference the entry dated 3/18/96 in my P&WA medical file concerning an “offer” of permanent 2nd shift assignment made while I was out of work depressed. After Dr. Kelleher and I had discussed this “offer”, Dr. Kelleher had in fact declined it and communicated this to P&WA. Because Dr. Kelleher fully agreed with me and he clearly knew the negative impact 2nd shift would have upon my already deteriorated mental health. In fact, the author of this entry noted that P&WA was “advising” Dr. Kelleher to return me to work. This was when Dr. Kelleher was verbally told by P&WA medical to “return Mr. Elliot to work, or else”. The “or else” was never elaborated upon, but Dr. Kelleher and I clearly interpreted this to mean my termination from P&WA. And we were sure of the source of this direct threat - Grout.


Again, Grout was acutely aware of the potentially fatal results of a long-term 2nd shift assignment, since he had spent many miserable years there himself and moreover the horrific education he had been provided by Mr. Cady and Verbryke. Therefore, this 2nd shift “option” was absolutely not Grout or anyone at P&WA for that matter attempting to comply with the ADA whatsoever and enter into the “interactive process”.


The direct result of Grout’s illegal denial of this very simple accommodation request was the ensuing enormous marital stress that resulted in our home life deteriorating into shocking domestic violence. Specifically commencing with my wife assaulting me in front of our children and her mother by savagely biting me on the chest on Easter Sunday 1996!

Therefore, the whole vicious story revolved around the true facts related to why this absolutely pivotal event happened, the biting incident, which in fact initiated all of the horrific domestic violence that the jury did hear about numerous times in full graphic detail. And moreover, the ensuing chain of outrageous illegal events at P&WA which would follow. Specifically, the only reason that my wife bit me in the first place, was exclusively due to Grout’s complete illegal failure to grant me the simply accommodation to transfer me back to P&WA’s miserable 3rd shift, or at the very least enter into the interactive process as required under ADA law that again was all primarily related to my child care issues.

And what made this illegal story clearly so heinous, that my own lawyers Gardner and Ellis without a doubt intentionally steered Judge Burns and the jury away from during the federal trial, that I empathetically emphasize was the key fact that in his professional medical opinion as a psychiatric expert, Dr. Kelleher had explicitly informed Grout in writing no less when making his accommodation request, that as a caring and devoted father my primary stressor in direct relationship to my MDI was and always will be my child care issues. In which, Dr. Kelleher was requesting this simple relief on my behalf. And not only did this sick little man Grout completely refuse to accommodate me and obey ADA law, he would eventually use his now very reliable knowledge of my literal Achilles heel against me, attempting and sometimes quite successfully leveraging behavior out of me including the ultimate act.

On my next visit to Dr. Kelleher that transpired on or about 4/1/96, I did physically show him the freshly inflicted bite mark scar and asked him exactly what he thought I should do if my wife were to get violent again. This is when Dr. Kelleher did in fact advise me to “call 911” if she were to assault me again. But the stark reality of my situation, that Grout was also keenly aware of which was documented in my own handwriting that would certainly prevent me from doing such a desperate thing was directly related to carrying the enormous debt load and therefore keeping our children in their home.

Shortly thereafter, Dr. Kelleher did call P&WA medical, specifically due to his shock and concern exclusively pertaining to the biting incident which is also recorded in my P&WA medical file entry dated 4/1/96. Dr. Kelleher told P&WA medical that he was absolutely “not comfortable returning employee to work due to unresolved family problems concerning child care, and marital problems”. Not one person at the P&WA medical department would bother to following up on his phone call and discuss with Dr. Kelleher the seriousness of my situation.

On 5/13/96 I returned to work at P&WA, in reality completely against Dr. Kelleher’s advice. Grout was still completely ignoring Dr. Kelleher and any and all of his recommendations and requests for an accommodation. In effect, Grout’s position was still the ultimatum recorded in my P&WA medical file given to Dr. Kelleher when previously on 3/18/96 he had been “advised to give employee a return to work note”----- or else! My return to work was fully documented in my P&WA medical file per entry dated 5/13/96 wherein the author, Nurse A. Barnard noted that “issues remain the same, and family problems remain the same – problems with child care remain the same”.

On or about 5/16/96 in front of our two small children, I found myself being assaulted again by my wife in another violent rage that was exclusively due to the ever increasing marital stress of not being accommodated by Grout. This time she approaching me and was ready to split my skull open with a 4 foot oak handle and steel bladed floor scraper. After I warned her that “Dr. Kelleher has advised me to Call 911 if you were to become violent again Helena”, she stopped, thought about it momentarily, and then proceeded to bash in the drivers side windshield of my car that I was standing beside.

Then on 5/16/96 after commuting to work, while peering through my bashed in windshield and thinking about my shattered life, I arrived at P&WA in suicidal tears. I clocked in at a subterranean time clock and could not make an appearance that day in D-955 in that state of incredible emotional duress, simply because a jet engine development shop is a very “macho” place. I was just not able to function any longer due to the enormous stress. Consequently, I got back in my car, left work without clocking out thus going AWOL, and I drove home and in fact almost blew my own brains out with my handgun!

And the fascinating details do clearly indicate that during the federal trial, my own lawyers Gardner and Ellis would actually allow P&WA/UTC to quite successfully use the fact that Grout had almost intentionally driven me to commit suicide against me in a federal court of law.

Upon my return to the workplace on 5/20/96, not one person in D-955 would ask me if I was alright, despite the fact that everyone at P&WA, including Grout, could plainly see my bashed in windshield that I could not afford to fix, and they all knew I had gone AWOL. Moreover, Grout had foreman Durant, who had replaced foreman Williams as my supervisor discipline me for not clocking out and going AWOL on 5/16/96. Grout knew exactly why I had gone AWOL because it was all in writing no less in my P&WA medical file that he was closely monitoring as he had me right on suicidal edge.

It was at this point that Dr. Kelleher had even called P&WA medical in such alarm over my crisis and requested a personal visit with P&WA Dr. Poliner. Dr. Kelleher did not bother trying to contact Grout anymore since he was obviously fully satisfied with my enormous distress. Dr. Kelleher’s request was completely ignored and the visit with Dr. Poliner never did take place. This request for the personal visit is also recorded in the P&WA medical file and the author of this entry recorded that I was suicidal on 5/16/96 by writing that I was;

OOW (out of work) 5/16/96 +5/17/96… Didn’t feel good so stayed OOW……Dr. Kelleher requests to see Dr. Poliner”).

On the same page of this medical record a second author, specifically the key witness Dr. Mauer also personally noted in a very comprehensive entry, after we had met in P&WA medical on 5/20/96 that she was fully aware of my deteriorating situation and that I had been suicidal on 5/16/96 which was specifically why I had gone AWOL by writing;

“…Has serious family problems and other problems………Did well until Thursday 5/16/96. Clocked in and felt badly due to family problems. Patient went home, was not able to continue to work……… Discussed with Dr. Poliner………Not (presently!) suicidal or homicidal”.

And per this note Dr. Mauer knew exactly where I worked at P&WA and who to immediately call as far back as 1996 regarding my situation; Grout, Eels and Durant in D-955. Dr. Mauer knew all about this cruel program of harassment and discrimination that Grout had subjected me to, in particular the fact that he had almost driven me to commit suicide on 5/16/96.

Two short weeks after my near suicide on 5/16/96 after I had gone AWOL, Grout himself sent me to see his right hand man - human resource representative Mr. Walter Eels under the false pretense that Grout was going to finally release me from his vicious stranglehold in D-955. At this meeting, in effect begging for Grout’s help, I physically lifted my shirt showing Eels the pivotal bite mark scar. My disclosure of the scar to Eels was an attempt on my part to divulge the real gravity of my situation caused by Grout’s denial of the accommodation, as I described to Eels the relationship of biting event to the windshield smashing incident and ultimately my near suicide on 5/16/96. I would never be offered any transfer out of D-955 because that was clearly not Grout’s real intent in having me talk to Eels.

Then three short days after disclosing my psychological vulnerability when showing Eels the bite mark scar, and just two weeks after I had almost committed suicide on 5/16/96, since I believe that I failed to entertain Grout by blowing my brains out, that evil bastard in his absolutely unmatched malicious intent decided that it would be fun to push me even harder over the suicidal edge on 6/6/96 with a totally unfounded accusation that supposedly I had committed sexual harassment. And Eels along with Durant did sit right there next to Grout as a tribunal when he dragged me across the carpet with his cruel and false sexual harassment accusation.

Consequently, moments later in a stairwell, while talking to my useless union steward Mr. Robert Manley about the false sexual harassment accusation that Grout had just made against me, I kicked and fractured a $5 piece of masonite, while again being reduced to suicidal tears. This was out of complete frustration, simply due to being wrongly accused by Grout because I was sure that Eels must have told Grout about the bite mark scar.

Grout then immediately suspended and ultimately terminated for the first time. Grout terminated me not for sexual harassment, but in fact for destruction of company property. This act of kicking the stairwell panel, literally on the verge of committing of suicide was just another example of the simply unexplained “unacceptable behavior” that Grout had in fact illegally provoked me into displaying that was successfully use against me in a federal court of law. And this outrageous event would be the beginning of the end of my 19 year long employment at P&WA.

But of most importance, that bogus sexual harassment accusation which Grout made resulting in my first unjustifiable termination, that illegally stripped me of livelihood and ability to provide for my children and family almost did intentionally push me over the suicidal edge on 6/6/96 as that sick little man sent me out the door distraught in the suicidal tears to ponder my shattered life - and hopefully this time to have provoked/harassed me enough to pull the trigger.

I have never harassed anyone in my life, sexually or otherwise. This absolutely vital piece of information required for the federal trial, that was intentionally suppressed, was undoubtedly confirmed during the CHRO investigation, where it was fully documented that this accusation was most likely fabricated. And this was largely due to the fact, that the engineer Mr. Joseph Farrelly who was the person escorting Miss Bruss the female visitor that I supposedly sexually harassed, testified truthfully that neither one of them were offended in any way whatsoever.

In reality, I was the one being intentionally and quite creatively harassed on 6/6/96 to within an inch of my life. Especially when you consider our already completely deteriorated marital (and therefore sexual) status, which was exclusively due to Grout’s illegal denial of the accommodation. And as a faithful Christian person myself, I now truly consider Mr. Dennis L. Grout to be nothing short of the Devil himself. And not only do I consider UTC’s stable of high priced federally subsidized lawyers to literally be his henchmen, but in fact I must now include my own attorneys.

Therefore, the jury had absolutely no idea that in reality Grout had illegally provoked/harassed me to kick not only the stair panel through his heinous program of H&D, but again each and every one of my displays of “unacceptable behavior” in which Gardner and Ellis would simply allow DB&H to continuously use against me in federal court.

I am convinced that this deliberately devised erroneous conclusion that Miss Bruss had supposedly been offended, could have also by design, easily insulted the female Judge Burns and moreover the most likely intentionally loaded jury, that was comprised of a majority six out of the nine people who were also female. And this would be concerning for them, what I believe was probably a very emotionally charged issue of the case, that in fact DB&H continuously focused upon.

This all important event that the co-conspirators knew was an absolute top priority to diffuse, since the false sexual harassment accusation was in reality the highlight event of Grout’s vicious program of illegal H&D as that evil bastard had intentionally attempted to provoke the caring and devoted plaintiff father over the suicidal edge on 6/6/96.

Immediately following Grout’s bogus sexual harassment accusation and my termination on 6/6/96, I went across the street to meet for the first time IAM president Mr. Mike Stone. Stone was obviously fully expecting my arrival and he promptly told me face to face and me quote; “Andy your bullshit, and your history at P&WA”! Stone had been a senior steward, specifically in D-955, for many years and was very close to Grout, prior to being voted in as the/my principle representative of the IAM union.
Consequently, I immediately hired my first employment lawyer, Mr. Anthony J. Palermino. And it was exclusively Palermino’s threat and his threat alone of a CHRO complaint and legal action in 1996 that returned me to work on 7/22/96 as a 19 year probationary, still on the 1st shift. Grout was still illegally denying Dr. Kelleher’s request for the reasonable accommodation and he was continuously giving me discriminatory work assignments.

After the sexual harassment accusation and my termination in 1996, Grout was quoted and recorded in writing during grievance meetings when making the following vicious statements about me and my near fatal predicament. In effect, at the time of this grievance meeting the players were discussing the dilemma attorney Palermino had created with his threat of legal action, and the illegal situation that Grout had intentionally created for me. Grout was quoted stating that;
· “Intend to terminate”
· “He’s gone beyond”
· “Punched out and left” (The day I was suicidal on 5/16/96)
· “We accommodated his shifts” (Grout did nothing)
· “Don’t know his family situation” (Grout clearly knew my families tattered status that he in fact caused because it was in writing no less recorded by P&WA’s own internal doctors.)
· “Were not equipped to deal with his problem” (Grout could have easily accommodated me)
· “Going to fire him”
· “Not putting up with that behavior” (Again, his cruel and illegal behavior had almost caused my near fatal behavior.)
· “Needs to hit Bottom”! (I think my near suicide on 5/16/96 was close enough for me and make no mistake about it; I have been scraping the bottom for the past nine years now as my family has been illegally destroyed)


In the spring of 1997 I was diligently trying, but unsuccessfully pursuing daycare. The wife was not supporting me at all. In fact, we had initially agreed upon, and I had even spent three months finding a young lady to come into the house to act as a nanny for the summer of 1997. The wife simply changed her mind at the last minute stating that she was not comfortable with that arrangement, casually waiving this person off saying “You find something else Andy”. But there was nothing else.

During this time frame my best friend was killed in a car accident and both of my grandmothers died of natural causes, all of which Grout would be on written notice due to my bereavement pay requests.

I had also made numerous written requests to Grout in early 1997 for help with my family’s deteriorating situation to no avail. In fact, Grout had even teased me twice in a very cruel fashion by offering me a temporary transfer to the Middletown, CT. plant that had overflow work at the time and then turned me down cold when stating specifically; “Because you want to care for your children Andy”. Moreover, Grout even had foremen Durant issue me a warning, aka “an encouragement talk” for simply taking two sick days off from work. In fact, I had requested and been fully approved by management (Grout himself) these two sick days when specifying that I needed the time off to take care of both children who were home sick with the flu, since I had absolutely no one else to care for them.

In April of 1997 the stress at home only escalated ever farther literally to the breaking point. In fact, that is when we had for me the ultimate horrific event at home. My wife in another one of her resultant violent rages, entered our little boys locked bedroom door by splintering the door and its jamb, and then proceeded to almost blind him in his right eye, by whipping him with the plug end of an electrical cord! I did not dare tell anyone in D-955 in absolute fear of what kind of creative program of vicious harassment Grout could possible think up for me concerning dreadful this event. This alarming incident was the absolute last straw for me at home, that again was all exclusively caused by Grout’s illegal denial of the simply accommodation. And due to this event their truly loving mother/son relationship would absolutely never be the same and forever damaged.

And I will absolutely never hold my now ex-wife fully responsible for any of the domestic violence we experienced - never. It was all exclusively due to Grout’s heinous program of intentional harassment and discrimination that caused all of these horrific events in our home - period.

Finally on 4/28/97 in total desperation and now habitual suicidal tears, this time because of the vicious assault my son had just suffered at the hands of my resultant violent wife, I made my last request at P&WA. This request was for a completely unpaid leave of absence under the state and federal FMLA, in which the specific reason I cited for this request was exclusively due my childcare issues. The exact same very real and now greatly exacerbated reason that Dr. Kelleher had specified in his ADA accommodation request.

Grout then did illegally turn me down absolutely cold for the unpaid FMLA. And contrary to what Grout had foreman Durant write at the bottom of this document, I firmly believe the FMLA request very much did apply.

Specifically, I believe without a doubt in my mind, since my psychiatrist Dr. Kelleher had clearly specified in his ADA accommodation request that in his professional medical opinion as a psychiatric expert my child care issues were my primary stressor in direct relationship to my MDI, or in particular FMLA language my “serious health concern” (SHC), Grout should have granted me the FMLA and therefore clearly violated the law when denying this last request.

And when I had gone to my IAM union of 19 years errantly asking for their help with Grout’s denial of the FMLA, they still did absolutely nothing for me. And this is when I will never forget union steward Manley, who I assure you was not that witty, said to me right out of the clear blue sky while Manley, Brinton Roy and I were working together on experimental engine X-808, as I was already dealing with suicidal ideations previously arranged by Grout. Specifically Manley told me;

“Andy, if you really love your family, and when you’ve had enough, you get yourself well insured and you take your car at a high rate of speed into a bridge abutment!”

Just for clarification, I believe Manley’s statement was an intentional suicide suggestion and I am absolutely sure of the source of this quite creative comment - Mr. Dennis L. Grout. And his repulsive inspiration was most likely the unfortunate fate of my friend Louis Verbryke and the mangled mother and child.

After Grout illegally denied my FMLA request, it was also fully documented during the CHRO investigation that P&WA blatantly retaliated against me on May 22, 1997 by intentionally attempting to provoke me into some act of workplace violence, so as to create for themselves a “threat to safety defense” again in effect over my child care issues. This obvious retaliation was made by P&WA three long and quite indicative days after I openly notified them on May 19, 1997 that I intended upon re-visiting Mr. Palermino and have him initiate legal action regarding Grout’s illegal behavior.

In fact, this was when I made the statement of my clear intentions to the emotionally unstable Dr. Mauer on 5/19/97. After our visit that day, in which Dr. Mauer had truthfully informed me there was absolutely nothing she, or anyone at P&WA medical could do about any accommodation requests whatsoever, when telling me that; “D-955 management (Grout) will do as they please”. I then in turn responded in a calm, clear and concise manner for all to hear in the foyer of the P&WA medical that; “I am sick and tired of this blatant treatment. I don’t think this is moral, ethical, or legal. And as the medical representative of P&WA I am putting you on notice that I am going to check this out with state and federal authorities”.

This outrageous and quite transparent retaliation was orchestrated, undoubtedly after P&WA had discussed my statement of 5/19/97 and obviously strategized with their team of federally subsidized attorneys, by having foreman Durant walk me out the door after I had contributed 19 long productive years in D-955, with a totally unexplained excuse that I had supposedly exhibited more unacceptable behavior, later claimed as the supposed “threat” (my statement above) against Dr. Mauer.

Then P&WA produced that evil bastard Grout onto the curb to stand within an arms reach away from me, and have him stare off into space like nothing was going on for 10-15 seconds. The “decision maker” at P&WA who I was keenly aware had been the person harassing me for at least the past three years, the direct result of which was all the domestic violence at home and of specific focus my near suicide on 5/16/96.

Moreover, and in fact the 2nd in command in D-955 Mr. Fred Valenti, did the exactly same thing attempting to provoke me to violence on the curb that day, since I failed to react to Grout’s intentional appearance. P&WA even had Eels arrange for the local police to be present for this staged event, clearly designed to arrest me hopefully assaulting Grout. I failed to participate in their obvious plan, and quietly left P&WA that day without incident, literally walking away from my youth.

And regarding the fraud committed against the court during the federal trial, Grout was not asked one question about this key event. Moreover, Mr. Valenti was not subpoenaed to testify whatsoever and was never even deposed. This most important evidence was suppressed, despite the fact that for the four long brutal years leading up to the federal trial, to explicitly and accurately quote Gardner this event was “the smoking gun” concerning my case.

Consequently, Judge EBB and the jury heard absolutely nothing at all about the significant fact that both Grout and Valenti were presented onto the curb right next to me, after I already had been walked out of the door at P&WA for the last time on May 22, 1997 in a clear attempt to provoke me to violence.

And the obvious question Judge EBB and the jury should have heard being asked, if Grout had been properly examined at the end of the trial was; Why would Mr. Dennis L. Grout risk his personal safety by approaching this supposed “threat to workplace violence” after I had already been safely escorted out the door without incident? Since the obvious answer was P&WA’s intentional attempt to create a “threat to safety defense” for themselves, then Gardner and Ellis should have had a legal expert on hand, to fully explain to the jury the ramifications of an employer/P&WA trying to create this #1 defense under the ADA so as to disqualify a citizen from their civil rights.

Specifically, this little known by the general public “threat to safety defense” and most likely abused by corporate America provision of the ADA states, that if employer can prove you are “threat to safety” (provoked or otherwise) then you may be disqualified from your civil rights under the ADA. Therefore, I believe the question is how many other citizens like me are being provoked to workplace violence, and perhaps the employer is getting a little more than they bargained for? For example someone “going postal”.

Gardner and Ellis completely suppressed this most important aspect of this significant event and all the clear implications to my case.

And the CHRO investigation also clearly indicated that Dr. Mauer most likely completely misconstrued my statement, since previously in her career she had been violently physically assaulted by a hallucinating mental patient in Texas. Gardner basically avoided this significant past emotional baggage of hers during the trial, and how it completely distorted her perception of reality. Moreover, since Gardner completely suppressed the CHRO investigation altogether, the important fact that I did not threaten anyone at P&WA, in particular Dr. Mauer on 5/19/97 and the real truth that I am certainly not a violent person was never definitively determined during the trial.

And Gardner made no issue whatsoever during any of this litigation about the quite significant fact that in the end, Grout had also illegally denied me a fully unpaid FMLA. Consequently, Judge Burns and the jury heard nothing at all about that all important fact, and moreover the horrific violence committed against my son, which was the specific reason why I had requested the FMLA trying to care for my children that I found were also suffering domestic abuse at the hands of my resultant emotionally unstable and violent wife.

Mr. Andrew R. Elliot, pro-se litigant March 2, 2006

Regarding; Civil Action 3:99 1290 EBB Andrew R. Elliot vs. Pratt&Whitney Aircraft (P&WA) a division of United Technologies Corporation (UTC)
Regarding; Second Circuit Court of Appeals Docket # 01-9462
Regarding; Connecticut Commission on Human Rights and Opportunities (CCHRO) case # 9840272

To whom it may concern,

If you are contemplating stepping one foot in this rotten State of “Corrupt-i-Cut” and perhaps thinking of spending one day employed here, in particular by United Technologies Corporation (UTC), you should be forewarned about how they illegally and ruthlessly destroyed my innocent family. This would be after I contributed 19 long years developing those military aircraft engines I see flying for “truth, justice, and the American way”. The same exact very valuable privileges that the Elliot family formerly of Hebron, CT. has been illegally raped.

And make no mistake about it UTC would have no problem robbing you of your life also if you dare contribute any of your precious time, talents and skills in their employment. And I have fully confirmed many other employers here in Connecticut that just as ruthless as UTC.

This would be in relationship to a nine year suicidal nightmare and blatant act of obstruction of justice, wherein UTC has compromised every local state and federal official I have contacted, notifying them of their illegal behavior asking for their help. You are walking completely alone when you are walking the streets of Connecticut, in particular against UTC. And if you visit this lousy state, specifically the capitol city Hartford; aka “New England’s Rising Star” on a weekend, don’t be surprised when you see the indicative tumbleweeds rolling down the streets. This would represent the cold stark reality of the other unsuspecting innocent American families and their haunting memories that have come before you and left in tears and tatters.

And my situation would concern a vicious case of employment discrimination in complete violation of my “rights” under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), the Connecticut Fair Employment Practices Act (CFEPA), and the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA), wherein the documented facts at the Connecticut Commission on Human Rights and Opportunities clearly suggest that my sick former supervisor at P&WA/UTC was intentionally attempting to provoke me into committing suicide over my child care issues no less. And it is fully documented in P&WA’s own internal medical records that at the very least on 5/16/96 that bastard did come very close to achieving the unmatched malicious intent of his very sick goal.



And when I suggest to you that they perhaps own every state and federal official here in Corrupt-i-Cut that would go right to the “top cop”. Specifically, the District of Connecticut U.S. Attorney Mr. Kevin J. O’Conner that apparently is not only for sale, the facts clearly suggest that he was fully bought and paid for by United Technologies Corporation prior to him even assuming this important and very influential position. The documented facts indicate that Mr. Kevin J. O’Connor is basically the worst and most vicious kind of criminal, blatantly abusing his office to screw over innocent Connecticut children and their families. And I believe documented facts of my case suggest that it is truly absurd to have appointed this person to this powerful and influential office and to think that he will judiciously uphold and enforce the law.


Mr. O’Connor’s unethical behavior is directly related to my lawsuit Civil Action 3:99 1290 EBB, wherein the facts clearly indicate that my former employer, United Technologies Corporation (UTC), Pratt&Whitney Aircraft division (P&WA) and their legal representatives, the prestigious law firm of Day, Berry and Howard (DB&H) conspired with former attorneys Barbara E. Gardner and Christine M. Ellis so as to commit obstruction of justice (OOJ) and intentionally defraud and blatantly lied to the Honorable Senior Federal Judge Ellen Bree Burns (Judge EBB) in federal district court August 2001 during the a five day long jury trial/ADA employment discrimination lawsuit.

I had sent Mr. O’Connor letter on 10/15/2002 soon after I confirmed this conspiracy between DB&H, UTC, and my former attorney Gardner after she had intentionally forfeited my hand in the 2nd circuit court of appeals August 2002. In fact, it is also fully documented that attorney Gardner lied through her teeth while conspiring with DB&H and completely defrauding the three presiding justices at the 2nd circuit; in particular Judges Pooler, Leval, and Calabrisi. The law firm of DB&H not only defended P&WA/UTC during both of these legal actions against me, but it has been their primary legal representatives for many years.

Mr. O’Connor issued me a letter on 12/10/2002 as most likely one of his first official acts soon after being appointed District of Connecticut U. S. Attorney on November 22, 2002 wherein he completely ignored this blatant act of OOJ committed by DB&H. I did not finally realize until 2004, exclusively because of his unethical behavior resulting in my divorce, that in fact upon assuming his position as U.S. Attorney in 2002, Mr. O’Conner had literally just walked out the door of not only his previous employer, but in fact his previous partnership with the illustrious law firm of Day, Berry, and Howard. Mr. O’Connor was actively working at DB&H when these fraudulent acts were committed by his law firm in both federal district court and the 2nd circuit court of appeals.

And what Mr. O’Connor quite successfully did was to strategically advise me to pursue this illegal activity as a simple case of legal malpractice committed by Gardner and Ellis. Therefore, he intentionally diverted me away from initially pursuing for at least two years the real, and very high profile culprits and criminals, specifically P&WA/UTC and their legal representatives his own law firm of DB&H.

The facts clearly indicate that Mr. Kevin O’Connor is fully aware of the real truth that this was definitely not a case of my lawyers merely being incompetent. Gardner and Ellis’ deliberate deceptive actions that transpired throughout the entire federal trial were absolutely not just “poor or flawed trial strategies” on their part. This was an unmistakable conspiracy to obstruct justice and intentionally defraud and blatantly lie to federal Judge EBB as she sat right there in her own federal court of law.

Mr. O’Connor clearly acted unethically since he did not recuse himself from this outrageous situation and immediately refer it to another unbiased U. S. Attorney. And Mr. O’Conner’s obvious motivation to ignore this blatant act of OOJ was to protect the image and federally funded financial interests of not only UTC, but in addition his own law firm DB&H. I am absolutely sure that Mr. O’Conner has many powerful friends still at DB&H, and perhaps still retains some undeclared financial interests in DB&H.


Mr. O’Conner’s relationship/partnership with DB&H commenced in 1997 at the exact same time I was illegally harassed out the door at P&WA/UTC and he was actively working at DB&H when this fraudulent act was committed against the honorable Judge EBB in federal court August 2001. Therefore, as a “rising star” at DB&H he may have been personally involved himself strategizing the whole time during the four brutal years that I endured leading up to the federal trial. And I do make note of the interesting fact posted on his U. S. Attorney web site, identifying him as a specialist in white collar crime. I believe this is readily apparent when the facts of my case are examined in an unbiased fashion.

The direct result of Mr. O’Connor’s highly unethical activity ignoring his duties as the U.S. Attorney, was to thrust my life into complete chaos and upheaval, specifically a very bitter and painful, time consuming divorce battle with my now ex-wife that commenced in December 2002 immediately after the issuance of his12/10/02 letter to me.

And concerning this blatant act of OOJ committed in federal district court August 2001, it is fully documented in trial transcripts that Mr. O’Connor’s partnership of DB&H, while conspiring with Gardner and Ellis did intentionally defraud and blatantly lie to the honorable Judge EBB throughout this entire federal trial.

Specifically, I did not discover until finally in December 2004 that my own attorneys Gardner and Ellis did not even invite me to witness their opening “statements of counsel” which transpired during the first 40 minutes of the proceedings of this intentionally flawed federal trial. And for that whole 40 minute time frame they did completely defraud Judge EBB concerning the entire heinous story while intentionally lying to her so as to set the illusionary stage for the forthcoming trial, which is fully documented in 56 pages of court transcript text.

And please make note, this was definitely not a frivolous lawsuit or a simple case of employment disability discrimination either. The documented facts revealed during CHRO investigation #9840272 clearly suggest that in effect this was an attempted murder case and that is exactly why the utterly ruthless corporation UTC has gone to such extreme measures attempting to suppress the truly deviant illegal behavior my former supervisor at P&WA; Mr. Dennis L. Grout.

Specifically, Grout testified in federal court that he did have extensive knowledge of psychology since he held at least one masters degree in human relations, coupled with the fact that for years he was known to literally stand on a chair and scream down upon his subordinates. Anyone of 200-300 employees at P&WA could attest to the fact that Grout clearly did suffer from what’s known as the “Napoleonic syndrome”. And the real implications of Grout’s truly demented personality and illegal behavior, therefore the extent of his sickness and sheer scope of his malicious intent is exactly what Gardner and Ellis while conspiring with DB&H made absolutely sure Judge EBB and the jury in federal court August 2001 did not realize whatsoever.

In particular, the documented facts at the CHRO clearly suggest that through a sadistic manipulation of my environment, in direct relationship to Grout’s complete and thorough understanding of my federally recognized disability - manic/depressive illness (MDI) and its potentially fatal results, that he may have been intentionally attempting to provoke me into committing suicide over my child care issues no less. And it is fully documented in P&WA’s own internal medical records that at the very least on 5/16/96 Grout did come very close to achieving the unmatched malicious intent of his very sick goal.

And not only did Grout completely violate my rights under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), the Connecticut Fair Employment Practices Act (CFEPA), and the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) in this quite heinous fashion, but in addition while subsequently walking me out the door, P&WA/UTC blatantly retaliated against me by intentionally, yet unsuccessfully attempting to provoke me into some act of workplace violence, so as to create for themselves a “threat to safety defense” over my child care issues no less.

This little known by the general public “threat to safety defense” and easily abused by corporate America provision of the ADA states, that if employer can prove you are “threat to safety” (provoked or otherwise) then you may be disqualified from your civil rights under the ADA of 1990. Therefore, I believe the question is how many other citizens like me are being provoked to workplace violence, and perhaps the employer is getting a little more than they bargained for? For example someone “going postal”.

And the truth that P&WA/UTC had attempted to provoke to violence so as to “create a threat to safety defense”, and that in the end Grout had denied me a fully unpaid leave of absence under the FMLA, are just two of many key facts that Mr. O’Connor’s DB&H while conspiring with Gardner and Ellis intentionally suppressed from Judge EBB and the jury during the federal trial. And these key facts were suppressed in writing no less by my own attorney Gardner with what are known as “motions in limine”.

It has taken me more than four years to fully analyze this circus of a federal trial after being raped of everything, in effect by Mr. O’Connor’s DB&H. This would include the ultimate loss for a caring and devoted father that is the joy and custody of my children, in addition my marriage and family, my home and land, most if not all of my friends and my entire financial security.

And acting entirely on my own as a pro-se litigant, since UTC has now compromised a total of three attorneys of mine, I have finally submitted to the Honorable Judge EBB on February 9, 2006 a “Motion to Reopen” and a “Motion to set aside the Judgment” concerning Civil Action 3:99 1290 EBB. I am of the unwavering opinion, given the overwhelming factually supported documentation I have presented, that there is absolutely no justifiable way she cannot grant me these motions. I will be soon posting a copy of the portion of these motions describing Grout’s heinous harassment and discrimination and the act of OOJ wherein they completely defrauded the honorable Judge EBB.



Please note that on May 5, 2004 I did make a complaint against Mr. O’Connor at the USDOJ-Office of the Inspector General - Office of Professional Responsibility (USDOJ-OIG-OPR) upon my realization of his very close affiliation to the numerous entities involved. I accurately alleged that Mr. O’Connor as an extremely intelligent and well informed partner at DB&H most likely had at least some knowledge of this quite convoluted conspiracy that was in the planning stages for four long years right there in his own office at City Place 1 in downtown Hartford, CT and that is exactly why he intentionally and quite strategically misled me.

The USDOJ-OIG-OPR did absolutely nothing whatsoever to discipline Mr. Kevin J. O’Connor. Moreover to date, the entire USDOJ has completely failed to act altogether upon this blatant act of OOJ committed by this defense contractor, despite the fact that I did supply them with all my facts and supporting documents, and moreover information that this is multiple client conspiracy with attorney Gardner and UTC. I believe this is in effect a citizen doing his own personal investigation of a conspiracy to obstruct justice that is a federal criminal act

And some of the critical pre-trial decisions made way back in1998 by state and federal agencies that clearly suggest DB&H may have manipulated the various representatives thereof, so as to participate in this conspiracy to create, facilitate and suppress this blatant act of OOJ would include, but certainly not be limited to, the State of Connecticut Department of Labor regarding my state FMLA complaint #FM 98-33 and our United States Departments of Labor (USDOL) concerning my federal FMLA complaint - case ID:1051188.

Both of these agencies during their “investigations” of my valid FMLA complaints quite indicatively never even looked at the fully documented evidence of this heinous story that had already been recorded at the CHRO, and determined that supposedly Grout/P&WA had not violated the FMLA. I think not. I firmly believe without a doubt in my mind, since my psychiatrist Dr. Kelleher had clearly specified in his ADA accommodation request that in his professional medical opinion my child care issues were my primary stressor in direct relationship to my MDI, or specifically in FMLA language my “serious health concern” (SHC), I should have easily prevailed during both of these DOL investigations.

These suspicious findings were made despite the fact that at least the USDOL has a memorandum of understanding (MOU) with CHRO. In fact, I did solely initiate both of these FMLA complaints and even though I had already retained Gardner, she never got involved in these DOL investigations whatsoever. The declinations of which I now am convinced was designed to eventually and quite successfully weaken my case in federal court.

And the USDOL- Office of Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP) concerning my complaint #B980030 that completely failed act and did not provide me with the most vital leverage of “leveling the playing field” on my behalf against this huge federally subsidized defense contractor way back in 1998, again despite the fact that they have an MOU with the CHRO. Therefore, in effect the OFCCP literally facilitated this blatant fraudulent act of OOJ committed against Judge EBB that consequently leaves me to this very day fighting a lopsided legal nightmare against this Goliath. And here again, Gardner did not get involved in this OFCCP complaint whatsoever that I did solely initiate, despite the unmistakable fact that if they had properly acted and withheld UTC’s lucrative federal contract payments that would have undoubtedly forced an immediate settlement and put money in Gardner’s own pocketbook.

Moreover, in November of 1998 the then USDOL Secretary of Labor Mrs. Alexis Herman somehow issued UTC the prestigious “Opportunity 2000 Award” identifying them as supposedly some kind of “civil rights highroader”.The USDOL gave UTC this prestigious award at the exact same time the CHRO had revealed the heinous facts of this story indicating the complete violation of my civil rights. And to add insult to injury, at the exact same time UTC received this award and all these wonderful accolades while enjoying record profits, I was being admitted to the Institute of Living in Hartford, CT. suffering from severe suicidal depression.

I believe all of these facts clearly suggest that the entire USDOL may have acted in collusion with UTC so as to obstruct justice and intentionally suppress all of their illegal activities. And I firmly believe that the USDOL’s obvious motivation in participating in this blatant act of OOJ was that in reality, it was designed in part by the USDOL to suppress their own unethical if not illegal behavior, specifically all three issues cited above. And therefore too simultaneously maintain UTC’s “spotless record” and “no news” concerning ethics violations as recently proclaimed by UTC CEO Mr. George David in Business Week magazine. This while he enjoys his obscene $89 million dollar annual salary and my family has relatively nothing.

In addition, I did solely make a complaint in 1998 against my former International Association of Machinists (IAM) union at the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) case #34-CB-2184 concerning their blatant miss-representation and ultimately complete failure to properly arbitrate on my behalf. The NLRB did absolutely nothing for me. These were some of the critical and quite suspicious decisions made by state and federal agencies that Judge EBB and the jury did not hear anything about, which would have clearly indicated this conspiracy to obstruct justice right there in federal court. Therefore, I contend they are very much involved in this criminal act of OOJ clearly knowing their actions were eventually going to be utilized to intentionally defraud a federal judge.

I have also discovered more exceptional and significant related facts. I have located two other former UTC employees who were also “represented” by attorney Gardner during their own disability discrimination lawsuits against UTC. These gentlemen had both been employed at UTC’s Sikorsky Helicopter division and also have indisputable evidence that Gardner intentionally forfeited their hands during their trials in federal district court.


In general, they both described to me the same exact experience that I encountered concerning Gardner’s “representation”, in which for some unexplained reason she blatantly suppressed the most important evidence during their trials that would have supported their cases, and therefore lined her own pocketbook. These gentlemen have also had their lives and families devastated by an identical, unethical and illegal situation. One mans name is Mr. Daniel Peck and his case number was civil action 3:94 CV 01360 (CFD). The other mans name is Mr. Al Yurevich and his case number was civil action 3:97 CV 01831 (JBA).

In fact, Mr. Yurevich informed me that Gardner’s husband, in which she does share his surname on legal documents is Mr. William Riordan who apparently is a well paid vice president at P&WA no less. Mrs. Gardner/Riordan absolutely never disclosed these pertinent facts to me whatsoever. In effect, attorney Barbara E. Gardner is literally UTC’s Trojan horse just laying in wait at 843 Main St. Manchester, CT. for the next victim of their vicious employment discrimination to come along and mercilessly destroy their case and family.

This information coupled with the fact that Gardner never made the fundamental request that Dr. Poliner and Mr. Grout testify during the CHRO investigation as well as suppressing the significant detail of the illegal denial of the FMLA, indicates to me that my case and family were doomed from the start, since she was obviously collaborating with UTC long before I even walked through her door way back in 1998. A case of employment discrimination like mine is truly a nasty and dangerous form of business, especially when you add into the conflict charming snakes lurking in the grass like attorneys Gardner, Ellis and the entire law firm of DB&H.

________________________________________________________________________

After I confirmed the existence of this conspiracy to obstruct justice with Gardner’s disingenuous appeal attempt and commencing in early 2003 while simultaneously analyzing the subject trial transcripts and dealing with my bitter divorce, I did follow up and make many additional complaints at the higher echelons of the various state and federal agencies in question with the erroneous belief they would help me. I consider this very precious time consuming exercise in futility as all part of Mr. O’Connor’s strategic diversion, in particular to my timeliness of filing this very motion, that at the very least I assume any other unbiased U. S. Attorney most likely would have suggested I do immediately.

The first complaint I will note was at the USDOL - Office of the Inspector General (OIG) Mr. Gordon Heddell. I had requested that he investigate and discipline all of the highly unethical activities of the officials and employees of the various USDOL agencies. Mr. Heddell did absolutely nothing for me concerning this scandalous behavior of the USDOL representatives involved who all blatantly acted in UTC’s behalf by simply exercising his “discretionary authority” that apparently simply allows the USDOL-OIG to arbitrarily ignore any and all unethical behavior committed by USDOL employees.

Since the USDOL-IG completely failed to act by exercising his completely open to abuse “discretionary authority”, I then made a complaint against the IG Mr. Heddell at the Office of the Presidents Council on “Integrity” and Efficiency (PCIE) case #IC 426. As with every other state and federal agency mentioned, I sent the PCIE a full set of all my documents and did make them aware of Mr. O’Connor’s significant role and all of his unethical activities. The PCIE did absolutely nothing about this act of OOJ and fraud committed against Judge EBB.

Apparently all I accomplished with this complaint process was to determine that the PCIE is just another useless federal agency, except with a rather glaring misnomer included in their title. Therefore, as with every other state and federal agency that I have encountered over the last nine miserable years, evidently President George W. Bush and his PCIE/administration have absolutely no integrity whatsoever as the world now witnesses them involved in far-reaching questionable behavior. Personally I consider George W. Bush and his entire administration as some of the most corrupt criminals this country has ever seen and the facts of my case clearly support my opinion.

And this leads me directly into all of the unethical, if not illegal events transpiring here in the state of Connecticut regarding my situation, in relationship to the now deposed in shame former governor John G. Rowland. First and foremost, it was none other than the confirmed corrupt governor Rowland who did in fact recommend Mr. O'Connor to President Bush so as to appoint him the powerful position of U. S. Attorney. And again, one of the very first things Mr. O’Connor did in his office was to strategically divert me and ignore this blatant act of OOJ committed by his own law firm DB&H while representing UTC. In addition, Mr. Rowland had extremely close ties to UTC since prior to his election as governor he was first a member of Congress serving on the all powerful House Armed Services Committee sponsoring UTC to be successfully awarded lucrative federal contracts for the products I toiled 19 years developing. And subsequent to that powerful position for the two years prior to being voted governor, Mr. Rowland was a well paid and influential lobbyist for none other than UTC.

And I see a direct relationship between the corrupt Mr. Rowland all the highly questionable decisions made by every state agency I have filed complaints at that were obviously dominated by him and therefore UTC. This would be commencing in1998 with the state DOL’s very suspicious denial of my valid complaint against P&WA concerning their illegal denial of my FMLA request and the ensuing retaliation thereof. In brief sum total, I have made the following complaints at the following state of Connecticut agencies;
· The State of Connecticut DOL – reference FMLA complaint #FM 9833.
· The State of Connecticut Ethics Commission – reference complaint #2003-10 against the state DOL employees involved in FM-9833. And concerning their absurd notice of dismissal for “lack of jurisdiction”, I just noticed this decision was seconded by one “Commissioner O’Connor” whose first name apparently is John. I have yet to determine if he was in some way related to Kevin J. (perhaps “John”) O’Connor.
· The Attorney General Mr. Richard Blumenthal and his office that was also carbon copied my October 2002 letter to Mr. O’Connor.
· The State of Connecticut Chief States Attorneys Mr. Christopher Moreno and his office concerning the act of OOJ.
· The newly created State of Connecticut Public “Integrity” Bureau concerning all my valid issues.
· The State of Connecticut Criminal Justice Commission concerning all my valid issues.
· The State of Connecticut Statewide Grievance Committee (SWG) and all it’s affiliates and agents – reference grievance # 04-0041 against attorney Gardner
· The newly appointed Chief Disciplinary Counsel (CDC) Mr. Mark Dubious – This position was created in 2004, primarily if there were accusations of criminal misconduct alleged in grievances at the SWG. And despite the fact that I did allege that this criminal act of OOJ was committed during CV 3:99 1290 EBB on the very first page of my grievance #04-0041, Mr. Dubious asserted in writing that supposedly I had not.
· The State of Connecticut - State Police no less
Every one of these state agencies, except the CHRO made decisions that were blatantly biased in UTC’s favor, therefore totally ignoring the act of OOJ. Consequently, I believe this indicates that Governor John Rowland and his entire administration may have also acted in collusion with UTC so as to create and participate in this blatant act of OOJ. And not surprisingly the committee that “investigated” Mr. Rowland prior to him voluntarily stepping down totally ignored me and my primary issue being the act of OOJ. I firmly believe that Mr. O’Connor and ex-governor Rowland are/were completely dominated by UTC, and it is all a cozy club in which UTC basically owns almost every influential state and federal official here in Connecticut. And I believe that the present administration of Governor Jodi Rell is just as corrupt and absolutely nothing has changed here in “Corrupt-i-Cut”.

And I firmly believe that Mr. O’Connor is well aware of all these unethical decisions that were made, since most likely it was his own partnership DB&H that compromised them all. In particular, these primary decisions made prior to the federal trial by the NLRB and the state and USDOL between the years 1997-2000 when Mr. O’Connor was actively working at DB&H, therefore indicating his own possible involvement in this specific activity.

In fact, some of the most recent and quite exceptional related events occurred at the SWG. Specifically, after I had quietly left the offices of the SWG committee on 8/25/03, I found myself being literally harassed and ultimately arrested by the Connecticut State Police with a totally unfounded allegation that I had supposedly “breached the peace” at the SWG office. I did absolutely no such thing. And the sworn written statements by the SWG employees making these false allegations against me completely contradict themselves, therefore clearly indicating that they lied through there teeth when making their bogus complaints.

Moreover, the State of Connecticut Department of Public Safety, that in effect is the State Police, destroyed the audio tape of my resultant booking session performed at Troop H Hartford, wherein they had reduced me to tears with this cruel harassment. In particular, by interrogating me in their lousy cage, while grilling me if I had any family left here in the State of Connecticut. In fact, when I questioned the State Troopers if my booking session was being recorded, so I could use as evidence against them, immediately and for absolutely no other reason they raised my bond for release from $1,000.00 to $5,000.00! Consequently, immediately upon me release I requested a copy of the tape recording of this outrageous event under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) to use as additional evidence for my defense in this matter. They simply refused to give me this tape when telling me they had destroyed it long before my court date. I was eventually found supposedly guilty in the State of Connecticut Superior Court system and ended up on probation.

I am convinced that this outrageous event was at least a clear attempt to intimidate and deter me because the SWG, and therefore everyone else involved, clearly knew I already had most of these irrefutable facts and was still pursuing justice in this situation and correctly assumed that I would eventually uncover the missing details being these pretrial “statements of counsel”.

Moreover, my comprehensive education in UTC’s scandalous strategies suggests to me, since I did absolutely nothing wrong that day at the offices of the SWG that these State Troopers were possibly attempting to provoke genuine violet behavior out of me, recorded on that audio/video tape I requested, so as create “legitimate” charges against me. Because I know for a fact that Grout’s own son is a member of the State of Connecticut State Police! I believe it is a truly frightening thought having this person in an armed position of perhaps distorted authority rolling the highways of Connecticut given the disturbing facts of this story concerning the person who sired him.

Therefore, I believe facts suggest that he, and Mr. O’Connor could have been involved engineering this unjustifiable arrest on 8/25/03 attempting to obstruct my pursuit of justice. And this would obviously be because he clearly knows his father is deeply involved in this act of OOJ and blatantly perjured himself in federal court while trying to make a fool out of the Honorable Senior Federal Judge Ellen Bree Burns.


In addition, I had subsequently politely requested in writing to Judge EBB asking if she would be my primary witness in my SWG grievance complaint #04-0041 that I filed against attorney Gardner shortly after my unjustifiable arrest of 8/25/03. I had also errantly carbon copied Mr. O’Connor’s office with this request to Judge EBB before I realized his close allegiance to DB&H/UTC.

First and foremost, the CDC Mr. Dubious did absolutely nothing to assist me whatsoever and he completely violated the newly updated 2004 Connecticut Practice Book, in particular not supporting me with my request to have Judge EBB act as my witness and answer some of my questions. And this was before my discovery of the pre-trial “statements of counsel”, in which my primary question to Judge EBB was what exactly Gardner had told her about the biting incident prior to the beginning of the trial. This absolutely key event which my entire case revolved around. This was because I had correctly inferred when reading the trial transcripts, that something must have said by the co-conspirators at the very least about this key event prior to the testimony phase of the trial.

And before Judge EBB could answer my questions, apparently U.S. Marshall Bardelli and his Deputy Dorsey intervened, instructing Judge EBB to completely decline any involvement whatsoever in my grievance #04-0041. And when I followed up with Deputy Dorsey he fully admitted what they did and then proceeded to threaten me. Deputy Dorsey said and I quote; “Mr. Elliot stay away from Judge Burns. You do not want to be accused of harassing a federal Judge!”

Therefore, not only did Mr. O’Connor fail to recuse himself and completely ignore my truthful allegation in late 2002 of the act of OOJ committed by his own law firm DB&H, I believe these facts suggest that he may be actively acting so as to obstruct justice sitting in his right there in his office as the U. S. Attorney no less. This is simply because I had fully informed Mr. O’Connor’s office in writing of this request and the U.S. Marshal Service are primarily his agents.

All these people blatantly attempted to obstruct me and therefore justice in this lawsuit because they clearly knew I already had most of these facts proving the act of OOJ as fully documented in grievance #04-0041, which by the way ended with a highly questionable finding of “no probable cause”. And these outrageous events clearly tell me that I would never prevail against UTC’s sacrificial lamb attorney Gardner (or Ellis) in a legal malpractice action here in her own state judicial clubhouse here in the State of “Corrup-i-Cut”. Moreover, I have talked to enough lawyers about the subject case to determine that no one wants to challenge UTC and their peer the highest ranked attorney in the state of “Corrupt –i- Cut” Mr. O’Connor, especially at this late date. Although the hard lesson learned is that I cannot trust any attorneys whatsoever, in particular my own District of Connecticut U. S. Attorney and you are entirely on your own when fighting a defense contractor.

I believe their ultimate goal was specifically to prevent me from filing my pending motion to reopen and set aside the judgment in relationship to at least the federal rules of civil procedures 9, 11, 59, 60, 61 and 73 that specifically addresses judgments that are rendered null and void due to fraud committed against the court and what I interpret reading the statutes as the wide-ranging authority of federal judges to act upon their own trustworthy initiatives when presented with valid reasons such as this act of OOJ to do as they must to rectify a substantial injustice such as this one committed against the Elliot family.

And the there is no doubt in my mind that Mr. O’Connor, when notified by DB&H’s attorney Zakarian after he receives his copy of my motion will most likely want to intervene again, since he and his client’s motivations are now maximized to suppress the whole outrageous, unethical, and illegal situation.

In short, the Elliot family has been totally sold out in effect by every state and federal agency that I have contacted, except the CHRO. As far as I am concerned being a long time dutiful taxpayer, I literally financed the demise of my own family since all these governmental agencies completely abandoned the Elliot’s and fully supported UTC.

And as much as I despise Grout for his appalling condition and program of H&D, that anger is eclipsed by the hatred I feel toward these state and federal agents that have no justifiable excuse for their unethical behavior. Because the illegal demise of the Elliot family was the direct result of the intentional denial of justice and ultimately a fair trial in front of a jury of my peers that was facilitated by these civil servants equal, if not greater malicious human intent when acting unethically to subject me to the ensuing exacerbated nine year suicidal nightmare.

It is truly a sad day in this country when a sick employee of a defense contractor intentionally attempts to provoke a caring and devoted, disabled and depressed father to commit suicide over his child care issues and moreover to have this team of state and federal agents blatantly act to suppress his deviant behavior. And as a loving father the most agonizing part of the story was that largely due to this unethical governmental support that bastard Grout did achieve most of his sick goals, the first of which was to finally drive my innocent children out of the “American Dream” in tears. And moreover, to successfully strip them of a truly happy childhood and subject the entire Elliot family to the sorrow and anguish of destroying our promising little family, while dying an extremely slow and excruciatingly painful illegal death.


And again, please note that this lawsuit was certainly not merely about my job and disability. In reality, it was about a disturbed little man who was utterly intoxicated knowing he had the knowledge, power, and the first hand experience provided by the suicide of my fellow P&WA employees, Mr. Louis Verbryke and Mr. Ron Cady, that by manipulating our livelihoods he could literally act as judge, jury, and indirect executioner. And I believe my fellow ex-employees at P&WA would readily agree that if I had blown my brains out on 5/16/96 or 6/6/96 that would have been the unspoken, but truly defining moment for Grout in his infamous career imposing his deviant will upon us. This is because Grout was in fact “almost a doctor” simply utilizing his extensive education in the pertinent school of psychology in this truly demented fashion that was financed and approved by UTC. As far as I am concerned it was Grout with the gun against my head that he simply handed Mr. O’Connor when he comfortably retired, and O’Connor has been holding it there ever since just waiting for me to pull the trigger.

And the question now is can UTC get away with suppressing this story of Grout’s heinous malicious intent by utilizing there vast resources and breaking absolutely every moral, ethical, and legal law in the book as I proclaimed them doing on 5/19/1997. In which, unbeknownst to me at the time was the sheer scope of their reckless indifference inasmuch as they had just gotten started with this convoluted conspiracy that in fact was all created specifically to commit this crime against the honorable Judge Burns. I positively need her help bringing UTC to justice as I could never do it alone, in which I have undoubtedly been acting the whole time. Because my most important ally being my wife and I were creatively divided and therefore completely conquered way back in May 1996 as we continuously fought each other and not UTC.



I believe if there is any integrity left at all in our democracy it is within the independent federal judiciary. And I truly believe that the honorable Judge Burns is a woman of the utmost integrity and I have implored her to expeditiously grant these motions and therefore restore not only my faith in our American society and justice system, but in fact my life. I can only sustain my sanity with my full confidence in her impeccable integrity to finally bring P&WA/UTC and now their representatives DB&H who defrauded her to justice. I believe that no disabled and depressed American citizen/father and his family should ever be subjected to this sort of true living hell.


I have been literally robbed of my life by this cruel conspiracy to suppress the simply truth that I was merely trying to fulfill my duty as a responsible parent to care and protect my children while dealing with my federally recognized disability and depressed state of mind. And unfortunately, I will never be able to simply forget this illegal story that is thoroughly engrained in my sole while possessing all this irrefutable proof of the illegal demise of my family and simultaneously watching UTC continuously celebrate record breaking federally subsidized profits derived from the fruits of my youth when diligently developing those military aircraft engines I see flying for “truth, justice, and the American way”. The same exact very valuable privileges that the Elliot family formerly of Hebron, CT. has been illegally raped.



Again, I will be soon posting a copy of the portion of my “motion to reopen and set aside the judgment” describing Grout’s heinous harassment and discrimination and the act of OOJ wherein they completely defrauded the honorable Judge EBB. I will also be posting the honorable Judge EBB’s decision concerning these motions.
