October 30, 1996

NOW logoToday in League HistoryOctober 30, 1996—League Director Joe Scheidler is deposed—again—by the National Organization of Women (NOW). NOW attorney Fay Clayton focuses letters, newsletters and transcripts from the early 80’s acquired from the League’s files during discovery, trying vainly to connect Joe to acts of violence. Clayton and Joe’s attorney Tom Brejcha fight like tigers during the entire day-long deposition. They make it through only a few years of documents and schedule a date for continuing the deposition the next month.
