I have a serious (as in non-snarky) question. How is it "established" that Ed Scott broke the rules? I've seen rumors, speculation, alleged inside information from anonymous sources, interpretations of a couple of remarks made at fan events, and conclusions drawn from unnamed or unsourced evidence. But, I have never seen anything indicated the WGA actually determined that Ed Scott violated the rules, that Ed Scott admitted violating the rules, or that anything was actually proven.

I understand if somebody chooses to believe all of that and, therefore, believes that it happened that way. But, given the power struggle going on at the time, the lack of any actual hard evidence (that I'm aware of), and the lack of follow up by the WGA, I think there is still some reasonable doubt that Ed Scott was guilty of any actual wrongdoing. It wouldn't be the first time somebody made a false or exaggerated accusation in order to get somebody fired.
I can see why one would suggest that but there was just too much said at the time to suggest it didn't happen. Those who did report it have a good track record and I know over at SON when the story was posted one of the people that runs that board (his name is Toups) made a post about not wanting to get involved in the story. He has inside sources and is always getting info, which he doesn't post much of. He merely said it was about to get ugly and that he was staying away from the story. That says it all IMO. Many sites picked up the story and ran with it too.

Plus, Corday could never fire Ed Scott if it weren't true. Sony forced Ed on him and would never let Corday get rid of him without reason. Ed provided a reason.

We have the same evidence that Higley scabbed that we have that Ed did what he did. Everyone knows she did it and I think it's fair to assume he did. Otherwise, why is he gone? It would've never happened otherwise. WGA never seems to followup on much of their investigation so them not coming out with anything on Ed, Higley, or anyone involved does not mean it didn't happen. It just means they didn't have enough to justify disciplinary action.
