Apparently, an appeal Is planned by Madonna Herman, the attorney for Andrews International. His story seems embellished and without facts. His nightmare about being burnt by his coworkers shouldn't have been in the story, unless it was used as proof in court. Did he record these "racist"remarks or actions ? If so, couldn't you have the listeners hear it? San Francisco juries will most likely be pc, liberal and leftwing majority . Details please..
