Re:
 
Cease and Desist
 
Mr. Johnson:
 
My law firm represents GAW Miners, LLC (“GAW”). On November 22, 2104, Coin Fire published an article entitled “GAW Miners lying about partnerships?”, which contains grossly false and misleading information relating to GAW and exposes Coin Fire potentially to significant civil liability. In sum, GAW has not lied about partnerships. Coin Fire’s defamatory article has irreparably harmed GAW and will continue to cause GAW to incur damages until it is withdrawn and/or corrected. In the article, the author claims Coin Fire reached out repeatedly to GAW for comments. This is  blatantly untrue, as you surely know. No one at GAW was contacted to discuss the story before it was  published. If GAW had been contacted and given a chance to set the record straight, the article would  be dramatically different: it would be accurate. A representative of GAW is available to discuss with you and the reporter the article’s numerous material inaccuracies. You have until Friday, November 28, 2014, at 5 p.m. EDT to notify us that you will speak with a GAW representative and that conversation must take place no later than Monday, December 1, 2014. The reason this conversation is so important to GAW is so that GAW can provide the necessary credible facts to rebut the story’s numerous false and misleading claims.
 
In the meantime, GAW demands that Coin Fire immediately cease and desist from disseminating such grossly false and misleading information by removing the article from its website. Although GAW is a firm believer in free speech and a free press, Coin Fire has crossed the line with this article, and anyone in GAW’s position would understandably make similar demands.
