I found this on the wellsreportincontext.com site:My recollection is that Wells interviewed them only once. NFL security interviewed them 3 times.
Excerpt from email dated 2/5/15 @ 3:53 p.m. from Daniel L. Goldberg to Ted Wells and Lorin Reisner:
“Scheduling of witness interviews: You have requested new interviews of those already interviewed, as well as interviews of a number of other individuals. We will work to accommodate all those interviews. The interviews will be arranged so that, barring unanticipated circumstances, there will not be future multiple interviews of the same person.”
Excerpt from email dated 3/9/15 @ 4:47 p.m. from Dan Goldberg to Ted Wells and Lorin Reisner:
“As to Jim McNally
No time limits were put on his prior interviews, three by League Security and one, full day interview, by you. Among the reasons for my disinclination to ask that he come for yet another interview are:
We had an agreement from the outset that, barring extraordinary or unexpected circumstances, each person would be subjected to only one interview by you.
if you want some added information from Jim McNally, let me know what it is and I will consider the best way to get relevant information to you.
Excerpt from email dated 3/17/15 @ 10:35 a.m. from Dan Goldberg to Ted Wells and Lorin Reisner:
“For the various reasons previously identified, coupled with what you have now seen on video, I remain disinclined to ask him to appear again.”
(I have also pointed out to you that the “new” areas explored in the fourth Jastremski interview that you requested did not address issues that could not have been covered in an earlier interview.
For all these reasons, I remain disinclined to ask him to return again. If there are truly unanticipated fact areas that you believe are relevant to whether there was tampering with the balls at the AFC Game for which you need his input, let me know what they are and I will see how best to get you that information. Certainly were we in litigation you would not get the relief you now seek without disclosing specifically what it is that has triggered the request for a fifth deposition of the same witness and what it is you plan to cover. I do not feel I am asking you for anything out of the ordinary by making this request.”
Excerpt from email dated 3/17/15 @ 4:59 p.m. from Dan Goldberg to Lorin Reisner and Ted Wells:
“We will certainly let you know if the position changes. And please let us know if we can assist you in getting any information you believe you are in need of in some other fashion -- whether in the nature of interrogatories or the like.”
