Rossi et al. v. Darden et al. (1:16-cv-21199), Florida Southern District Court.
The ongoing federal litigation between Andrea Rossi and the principals of Industrial Heat LLC has revealed some troubling documents and correspondence regarding the testing of the E-cat system. All of the filings and motions may be found here.
Exhibit 5 – Is a list of questions IH’s engineer, Joe Murray, sent to Fabio Penon, the Expert Responsible for Validation (ERV), questioning some of the data from the preliminary reports issued by Penon. These questions include some troubling observations about the equipment and measuring techniques used. Apparently these questions were never answered and Penon has yet to respond to this lawsuit.
Document 118-01 – Is a compilation of email communications between Andrea Rossi and the agents of J.M. Products, Inc. (JMP), the purported customer making use of the E-Cat’s excess heat. Rossi seems to exert an unsettling amount of control over JMP’s operation. In emails with James A. Bass, the Director of Engineering for JMP, Rossi appears to be “coaching” Bass on what to say to observers, with Bass asking Rossi, “My question is, will the people I meet tomorrow want to know anything technical?” In another email, Rossi tells an assistant to Henry W. Johnson, Rossi’s attorney and organizer of JMP, that he will transfer $500 from Leonardo Corporation to the JMP account, which had apparently been overdrawn.
