Suspended USACA secretary faces legal action

The USA Cricket Association has upped the ante in its bid to address issues caused by suspended executive secretary Kenwyn Williams and instructed its lawyers to warn him that he faces legal action if he continues to publish confidential information and documentation.

Williams, who was suspended last week after increasing erratic posts on USACA social media sites, has continued his attacks on board members. He has also published an agenda for next month’s AGM on USACA headed notepaper containing items which appeared designed to further embarrass the board.

“You must cease and desist from these actions and anything even remotely similar,” McGuire Woods, USACA's legal representatives, wrote to Williams on Tuesday (October 23). "The documents you have circulated and/or posted contain confidential information protected by the court. They also make false and defamatory statements about a board member and the organisation generally.

“There is no legitimate or justifiable reason for you to be taking these actions and making these public comments. Your sole purpose in publishing these materials appears to be to bring USACA and its board into disrepute.

“If your actions, documents and postings adversely affect USACA or any board member or staff person … you will be held personally liable and accountable.”

Any hopes this might cause Williams to adopt a lower profile were almost immediately dashed when he published the letter and continued his Twitter attacks on those he considers to be opposing his stance.
