That certainly sounds like someone who is lawyering up for a lawsuit or two.

Considering he lost his job and future opportunity as premier of the province due to allegations that are anonymous, with no charges or complaints filed, it doesn't take a law student to figure out he may have a case.

Take, for example, TVO host Steve Paikin who has also been accused of alleged sexual misconduct.

His employer is investigating and Paikin is still on the job while he defends himself against an identified complainant.

By contrast, Brown's employer (the PC party) abandon him becoming judge and jury without an identified complainant or charge, forcing his exit.

If these allegations are proven to be false and the court of public opinion sways back to Patrick Brown, he may not be premier, but he could be owed a lot of money.

If it was a private company, the PC party could owe Brown for wrongful dismissal and CTV for ruining his future career as Ontario premier without sufficient evidence.

How much do you think it is worth for both CTV and the PC party to keep this all quiet in hopes no one questions their lack of credibility and it all conveniently goes away?
