Edward McNelis, attorney for former Cook Counseling Center director Robert Miller, responded to a request for admissions today in a written statement to the press.
McNelis said the request, sent by Robert Hall, attorney for the families of April 16 victims Erin Peterson and Julia Pryde, would not receive a public response.
“The requests for admission by Mr. Hall are not facts but merely contentions drafted by an attorney with a vested interest in the outcome of the lawsuit,” McNelis said in the statement. “In contrast, the documents recently filed by Dr. Miller regarding the details of how he inadvertently removed the triage forms were statements of fact given under oath.”
Miller, who returned the mental health records of April 16 shooter Seung-Hui Cho in July after locating them in his home, released a legal response to questions on Tuesday. Hall sent a request for admissions on Thursday after the records were made public by Virginia Tech and Cho’s estate. Zc
