  • Events / Facts / Rumors

    This is the most important step. Please take the time to read the directions carefully.

    • Please list important case-related events, facts and even rumors in the table below.
    • You don’t have to have to be 100% sure that what you tell us happened or is true.
    • And you don’t have to have direct personal knowledge of the items you list. We just need the widest possible list of items to thoroughly investigate.
    • Don’t worry about listing events in proper date sequence. We’ll put them in order when we receive this document back from you.
    • Some facts and rumors don’t have dates associated with them (for example, “Greg has blue eyes”). When that’s the case, just leave the Date cell for that row blank and enter the fact or rumor in the Description cell.
    • After you've recorded what you know about the date of the event, type a brief write-up of the event itself in the Description cell.
    • As you write up the events in the case, you'll probably think of people and organisations you did not list in the tables above. Be sure to back up and add them.
