The Nightmarish Saga of Michael Fitzgibbons

The case pitting the whisteblowing doc against Integrated HealthCare Holdings Inc. appears to be over

Delgado's identity has never been confirmed, although testimony at Fitzgibbons' trial this month revealed that investigators found a photo of him on Mogel's computer after the latter left the company in 2008. Through the public-relations firm he hired at the time, Mogel released a brief statement to the Weekly denying any wrongdoing. "I want everyone to know the allegations in this lawsuit are outrageous and untrue," he said. "However, legal prudence dictates that I not discuss the case in the press because of the litigation. The truth will come out."

Mogel didn't testify during Fitzgibbons' recent trial, but Anderson did, repeating his claim that Mogel had set up Fitzgibbons. IHHI attorney David Robinson tried to poke holes in Anderson's story by pointing out that when Anderson gave his first deposition about Mogel's remarks about how powerful he was, he claimed Mogel had uttered them the day he was arrested, when in fact, Mogel was in Florida that day. But Anderson stuck to his tale, insisting that while he'd confused the dates in his mind, the conversation did happen. Clearly, the jury agreed.

Fitzgibbons: "These bastards were plotting my professional murder"

Although grateful the case is finally over, Fitzgibbons says he hopes its not too late to rebuild his career. "This destroyed my hospital practice," he says. "It's gone. I'm radioactive; people are afraid to be around me." And he still hasn't gotten over the trauma of being set up and having his daughter nearly killed. "If some of this stuff had shaken out differently, I could have gone to jail, and my daughter could have died," he said. "These bastards were plotting my professional murder, and they almost got away with it."

And this is why Orange County law enforcement is a civil rights violating criminal organization. There is a network of criminal dog shit here that behaves like the mafia except worse because they are using the resources of the state. 

Here's my short list: 

Harassment and intimidation by cops/security personnel and worse H/D by criminal thugs 

Puncturing my tires (Toyota Camry)

Smashing my right front passenger car window (Toyota Camry)

Loosened tire bolts (Toyota Camry) 

Vandalism to my wife's vehicle 

Stalking my wife

Destruction of my reputation with the police and with the community I interact with

Invasion of the privacy of my home through entrapment of neighbors and worse

Attempted murder on the Garden Grove freeway complete with cop that flees the scene as I'm pointing in the wrong direction on the freeway. 

And because I care about the reputation of this country, I'm going to stop there. 

And a leadership structure so morally bankrupt that no one gave a damn when I complained about it IN PUBLIC except for maybe Anaheim Mayor Tait who suggested that I speak to his city manager (which by the way Mayor Tait - your gesture didn't prevent OC law enforcement  from continuing the felony harassment).

Wow this is pretty crazy!  It almost sounds like a movie. 


Are you the doc in this article? You kind of look like him (your pic is a little fuzzy).
