This. Even blatant misquotes, typeset in quotation marks, are not that uncommon.

Jokes aside, and culpability aside, I do appreciate Tim's willingness to shine a light on something he see wrong in the profession. Whether we agree or not, at least we can discuss and be aware.

If the AAA or ABCD did indeed leak confidential info, I'd agree that it's a concern. However I'm not 100% clear that the AAA/ABCD leaked info or if it was released by the person making the complaint to the ABCD.

The information regarding the complaint would have (obviously) been known to the person who filed it.

The information that was leaked regarding the disciplinary recommendation is the main issue, because that should have been private (unless I missed something in the lawsuit documents.)

If I understand the NYT article, the complaint was leaked by the town, but if i understand the OP correctly, he's suing because the ABCD's investigation and/or recommendation was leaked, something (if I understand the ABCD process correctly), the town could not have known.

Damn it, ninja'd

IANAL, but maybe he tried to change the mortality table at some point but the plan sponsor freaked out about the increased required contribution. I would imagine there is a lot of friction in public plans such as this between the actuary and the plan sponsor.

I don't see why the AAA or ABCD would leak the information, so if it was the complainant surely Tim's beef is with them?
