Former Axanar Director Won't Accept ‘Sweetheart Deal’

Peters Says Robert Meyer Burnett is Not Smart Enough to See Peters Has a ‘Bulletproof Case’

Sweetheart deal: Despite what he called a “bulletproof case,” Axanar producer Alec Peters took to Facebook to decry (without naming him) former director Robert Meyer Burnett turning down a settlement Peters called a “sweetheart deal.”

  • Don’t owe a dime: Peters said he doubted Burnett was “smart enough to actually take the deal,” in which he said Burnett wouldn’t have to pay a dime.
  • A setup: As we reported this week, the sweetheart deal actually sets Burnett up for a followup suit in which he’d lose a major defense.
  • Almost no documentation backing up his claims was filed along with his legal complaint agains Burnett, especially proving his payments to Burnett were actually loans.
  • Suing a Californian in Georgia: Peters still hasn’t explained how he expects to bring suit in Georgia state court against Burnett, a California resident.

A reasonable offer: Peters confidently predicted a Georgia judge would award him attorneys fees and court costs, in addition to damages, “when he sees the case and how reasonable our settlement offer was.” uses cookies to ensure you get the best experience on our website.
