    Have picked up on a few comments to that affect...effectively calling out PMNews for not going to cover it and challenging them to cover it. I would have thought it was a big story.

    PM News won't cover this. His foundation is an advertiser in PM News. Money rules.

    Press Release:
    Bako Diagnostics Responds to Recent Statements Made by Dr. Bradley Bakotic
    ATLANTA. Jun. 26, 2018 – At Bako Diagnostics, among our highest priorities are upholding the quality and integrity of our work, maintaining the utmost professional standards, and ensuring that our company provides a safe workplace for our employees. As a result of false and misleading public statements being made by our former CEO, Dr. Bradley Bakotic, we now find it necessary to clarify the facts of his termination from Bako Diagnostics in an equally-public manner.

    Dr. Bakotic was terminated from Bako Diagnostics on September 8, 2017 after allegations of misconduct were made against him and following a comprehensive, independent investigation conducted by the company’s outside counsel, Latham & Watkins. During this investigation, Dr. Bakotic admitted to instances of misconduct including sexual relationships with subordinate female employees, as well as physically assaulting one of the female employees with whom he was having an ongoing relationship. Latham & Watkins also received multiple allegations of illegal drug use by Dr. Bakotic, which they found to be credible. As a result, a Special Committee of the Board of Bako Diagnostics saw no other choice but to terminate Dr. Bakotic’s employment.

    We find Dr. Bakotic’s alteration of these facts and proclamations of his innocence, particularly after his admission to the assault, to be disingenuous and potentially damaging to the reputation of Bako Diagnostics and its employees. The facts speak for themselves and are clearly described and outlined in legal filings.

    We wish to set the record straight and focus our attention on delivering the highest quality laboratory services and products for our valued clients. We are confident in the merits of our case and look forward to our day in court when Bako Diagnostics can continue without these distractions.
