Collins was very helpful. He answered questions and emails promptly. He was thorough and detailed in his explanations. (On file with network coordinator)
"I was extremely satisfied by Prof. Collins. I send him my draft and he helped me to structure the thesis and gave me very pertinent advices. He reviewed what I have written until that moment and coached me in writing what was left. From the moment I was in contact with the professor I had a great feeling of being supported by a very competent professional. Before knowing Prof Collins, writing the dissertation was a stressful process and made me feel very anxious; after starting to collaborate with Prof. Collins, writing the dissertation became a pleasant adventure. We had regular contact by e-mail (I live in Europe) and I was impressed how available he was, answering to all my questions very promptly, helping me to advance. I really needed a frequent contact because it was an ongoing process; I appreciated a lot he was following my tempo in order to respect the deadline. I got an A with distinction for my Master Dissertation. I am so thankful to Prof. Collins.

At the Mount Washington McDonald's, for ...

At the Mount Washington McDonald's, for example, the caller's first demand after accusing employee Louise Ogborn of theft was that an assistant manager take away her car keys, said Barry Collins, a professor emeritus at UCLA, who testified as an expert for Ogborn in her lawsuit against the company.
...
"Once we agree to the first request, we are more likely to agree to the second," Collins said.
...
The caller, suspected of perpetrating hoaxes at about 30 McDonald's locations, as well as at Burger King, Hardees, Wendy's and other chains, exploited another basic principle of social psychology, Collins said -- the tendency of people to obey authority figures.
"Obedience to authority is what makes this country run," he said.
...
Collins said McDonald's could have prevented her ordeal by training employees and putting out the word about previous hoaxes.
"If there is something McDonald's wants done, they know how to do the training," said Collins, who noted the company offers employees seven pages of instructions on how to close its stores, and monitors each store to ensure that french fries are still frozen when they are thrown in the fryer.
Collins testified that McDonald's considered, but dropped, a plan to place stickers on the phone in every store warning about the hoaxes.
But cross-examined by McDonald's lawyers, Collins conceded that people often don't heed warnings.He acknowledged that his own research on the use of condoms shows that warnings alone don't guarantee that people will practice safe sex.
Collins also acknowledged to McDonald's lawyer W.R. "Pat" Patterson Jr. that the hoax call could have been aborted if assistant manager Donna Summers had simply hung up the phone "in the beginning, before the hooks were set."
...
Kennedy and Collins both said one person was likely responsible for making all of the calls.
...
Collins said that the caller "enjoyed being in control and ruining people's lives, and derived some sexual pleasure from his exploits."
But he said sexual gratification played no role in the conduct of Walter Wes Nix Jr., who forced Ogborn to do jumping jacks in the nude and orally sodomize him at the direction of the caller.
"If you looked at him, he wasn't enjoying himself," said Collins, who examined a surveillance video of the incident that will be played later to the jury.

Expert witness Barry Collins held up one of the books he read while doing research for the McDonald's strip-search hoax trial.
