Here is an article about a case in which I represent a defendant (legendary Tacoma rock-and-roll band – Girl Trouble) accused of defaming the nationwide “music production” company Gorilla Productions, Inc.
I will leave it to others to discuss the merits of the claim, you know where I stand – on the side of free speech! You can read the details of the complaint at http://www.neverpaytoplay.com/, which is also the target of the suit.
Unfortunately, Ohio does not have an Anti-SLAPP law in place…yet. So, we must fight on Gorilla’s turf, for now. Currently, we are filing a motion to dismiss for lack of jurisdiction (via an Ohio attorney, the wonderful Suzanne Blum of Thacker Martinsek), and hope the suit ends there. More to come.
