Bronson Havard and bad faith

By Jeff (articles ) | Jun 21, 2003

Readers can judge for themselves whether Bronson Havard, the Diocese of Dallas's spokesman and newspaper editor, made a good-faith effort in this editorial to characterize fairly the motives and concerns of three dozen prominent lay Catholics.

In his biography of Frederick the Great, Carlyle observes, "Happy the people whose annals are blank in history books." History records an arbitration panel's July 2000 ruling that Bronson Havard showed "bad faith" when he held the domain names StatefairofTexas.com and TexasStateFair.com against the wishes of the State Fair of Texas -- even after the State Fair offered him $250 for the domain names. (Case No. 95066)

    It is an interesting fact of the case that Mr. Havard did not respond to the complaint. Mr. Havard's modus operandi as editor of the Texas Catholic is to respond to anything and everything. It is more interesting still that his editorial is critical of dissention when his very paper is typically a promoter of such.
