In his letter to the editor (March 24 issue), SAFE Credit Union CEO Henry Wirz suggested that Glendale Area Schools FCU and six other credit unions had plenty of other options rather than to file suit against the WesCorp directors. With all due respect, Wirz is wrong. The plaintiff credit unions in the case are not as Wirz contends, “blaming others for a failure that no one saw coming.” Anyone who had taken the time to read the complaint would understand that it is designed to hold accountable those responsible-an objective that many in the credit union industry share.
