Re Written Defamatory Statements Concerning Peter Schorsch
Our File No. 13 2911
Dear Mr. Hussey: Trenam Kemker represents Mr. Peter Schorsch. It has come to our attention that you have
made several defamatory statements about Mr Schorsch on your blog
Pushingrope.blogspot.com
. Specifically, on January 4, 2014 you wrote that Mr. Sehorseh was fired from his employment with Jack Herbert. Mr. Schorsch was not fired by Mr. Herbert. On
January
5
2014 you wrote that Mr. Schorsch was convicted of grand theft and labeled the article
with corruption. Mr. Schorsch was not convicted of grand theft. These statements were
written with malice are libelous and are actionable in a court of law.
A publication is libelous
p r s
if it imputes felony, or an improper exercise of lawful
business trade profession or office. The Florida Supreme Court has held that it is libel
p r s
to
falsely publish statements that import injury, and thereby obviates the necessity of either
pleading or proving damage or malice in fact, since both of these elements are presumed as a
matter of law in such cases.
Accordingly we require your prompt written assurance that you will remove the
offending statements from your website, and will refrain from using defamatory statements
regarding Mr. Schorsch in the future. Our client prefers to resolve this matter amicably without
taking further legal action but is prepared to prosecute the above-referenced issues to the fullest
extent of the law. Accordingly, we insist that we receive your unambiguous, favorable response
on this matter in writing no later than the close of business on January 22 2014. Absent receipt
of such assurances by the stated deadline, our client reserves his right to take appropriate legal
action to protect his rights.
