Statement on Behalf of Gary Goddard
Mr. Goddard stands by his original statements of denial regarding Edwards and Nighman.
With regard to Mr. Driscoll, Gary is stunned and disheartened by Mr. Driscoll’s claims and must deny them as well. They met when Goddard was 18 and Driscoll was 13, as Mr. Driscoll stated, and they remained friends for all these many years. Driscoll worked for Mr. Goddard’s company for a decade or more. Both the Goddard and Driscoll families have spent many holidays together and enjoyed a close relationship for many decades.
Some news reports on this issue reference a legal claim made against Gary Goddard approximately four years ago regarding sexual harassment. That claim was demonstrated to be fraudulent and completely fabricated, and was withdrawn by the complainant and his attorneys.
