Richard Pack Claims Memory Loss and Dysthymia Just Days Before Being Deposed on December 8, 2014. Letter writing Physician is on Co-Defendant Brazell's Personalized Medicine Board

According to papers filed by Robert V. Brazell, Von H. Whitby, and Richard Pack's attorney Mr. Todd Harlow in the Business Defamation lawsuit, Richard Pack "a 74-year old man, lacks sufficient mental capacity to give sworn testimony in this case." And, that "His physical condition also prevents him from traveling unaccompanied to Texas." According to Mr. Harlow, Defendant Richard Pack "…is under a physician's care and lacks the mental faculties required to give testimony under penalty of perjury."


The doctor notes that the dysthymia (a chronic type of depression in which a person's moods are regularly low) is exacerbated by seasonal fluctuation—Richard Pack allegedly resides in La Jolla, California, where temperature fluctuation is only 12 degrees all year according to And, California is rated as one of the top 10 "least depressed and happiest states in America."  The motion also states that "Mr. Pack's physical condition also precludes him from traveling from his home in California to be deposed in Texas." Unless Dr. Andy Peiffer traveled to California for the physical, it would seem Richard Pack was recently capable of traveling to Utah. WCEOs does not have details on the location of where the physical may have taken place.


Interestingly, the letter writing physician Dr. Andy Peiffer, the Medical Director of The Men's Health Center in Salt Lake City, Utah, also serves or served on co-defendant Robert Brazell's Board of Advisors for Personalized Medicine, LLC., with Robert Kasten (who served on the Board of Directors), one of the Defendants in the Utah Fraud Lawsuit. Von H. Whitby, yet another co-defendant serves on the Board of Directors of IBN Media LLC with Robert Brazell and Robert Kasten.
