    Would someone at WBI be interested in doing a case study on my workplace bullying/mobbing experience?
    I believe it is unique in some respects:1) unique overlapping of organizational/governmental authority structure; 2) mobbing conspiracy led by a judge, who used slander, gossip and lies to discredit me and eliminate me; 3) I was ostracized and isolated but this was a great opportunity for me because I now worked from home; I have 1/4 the workload and still make the same salary. I was emotionally traumatized but I am stronger in many ways.
