        • Jae will contact Timon communicating the resolution to him.
      • Tabled for later discussion: Asking, respectfully, that similar behavior to those described in the complaints be not reproduced again in sudo room.
        • Complaints:
          • [The previously articulated and noted conflicts from mtg 1 of this process]: On more than one occasion, Timon has acted aggressively and behaved in a threatening manner. On one occasion, in the middle of the night, Timon refused to leave the space and made Jenny feel unsafe. On an earlier, unrelated occasion Marc felt unsafe when Timon approached him and spoke to him aggressively.
            • Specifically: Raising one's voice to the point of drowning out another's voice, aggressive/angry responses to nonaggressive requests, intoxication to the point of not being able to control anger/aggression
