Fired flight attendant and Association of Flight Attendants (AFA-CWA) activist, Gailen David, has found himself in court once again and this time he admitted to menacing acts against his former co-workers.
In a series of written responses to questions, Gailen David admitted to owning and authoring a series of allegedly defamatory and harassing blog posts which he previously denied. During a preliminary hearing in August 2020, Gailen David appeared in court without representation and when questioned by the Judge, stated he didn’t own the website in which the articles appear and stated he was merely “quoted” in news stories. However, when asked through interrogatories whether or not he owned and published the content he replied, “admit.”
In the documents, an attorney for Gailen David says that David admits to sending his former colleagues the message: ““I expect to be unblocked by all of you today on cellular phone, Facebook Messenger. Otherwise, I’ll pass communications to you through your friends, family, business associates, etc…”” The statement alludes to the actions which followed, in which he created Twitter accounts that sent numerous messages, a keystone focus of this case, to his former colleagues and their personal and business contacts on the platform. Gailen David admitted to creating each Twitter account in question and also admitted to authoring “all posted tweets” from each account.
Further, the document contains an admission that Gailen David contacted clients of his former production company, while also admitting he was no longer a partner or television host when doing so.
Before filing the written responses, David’s attorneys filed a motion for a Confidentiality Order. Sources say the order was desired to protect conversations between David and AFA-CWA President Sara Nelson. The court denied the motion and messages from Nelson were handed over through discovery which included conversations about the AFA-CWA continuing to pay David as a consultant following the claims made against him.
