Conal O’Rourke remains frustrated after his year-long battle with Comcast, which allegedly led to his termination. Cyrus Farivar

OAKLAND, CA—Speaking over lunch last Friday, a Northern California man named Conal O’Rourke laid out what admittedly sounds like a crazy story: a year-long billing dispute over his home Comcast service that ultimately resulted in Comcast getting O’Rourke fired from his job at PriceWaterhouseCoopers (PWC) in nearby San Jose earlier this year.
But O’Rourke arrived to last week’s lunch meeting with Ars with an astonishing amount of documentation: he has pages and pages of Comcast invoices. He has a spreadsheet, photos, notes, business cards, and complaint letters. He and his lawyer, Maureen Pettibone Ryan, happily provided digital copies of these materials to Ars, which we have re-published with his permission here.
As a result of his firing, O’Rourke has hired a local attorney and is now threatening to file a lawsuit against Comcast if the company does not agree to his demands, which include “a full retraction and apology, his re-employment with his former employer, and $100,312.50” by October 14.
