Sailing Anarchy getting sued for libel and slander

Recommended Posts

CEO Says Sailing Website Smeared Him

By ELIZABETH BANICKI

ShareThis

SAN DIEGO (CN) - The owners of sailinganarchy.com, the self-proclaimed "largest sailing site on the net," defamed a CEO and philanthropist by calling him a "grifter" and a "white collar criminal who stole millions," the businessman claims in Superior Court. He describes the website as "the National Enquirer of the sailing world."

Daniel M. ************, the CEO of an unnamed publicly traded company and a passionate sailor, claims his financial success drew the attention of Scot Tempesta and Alan Block who, through their Sailing Anarchy website, embarked on a "baseless and mean-spirited smear campaign."

************ says the information on Sailing Anarchy's website "consists of sensationalized, attacking and defamatory 'stories' about people in the sailing world." The stories focused on personal attacks of sailors and their families and are "tabloid journalism at its worst," he claims.

************, who also serves on the board of the Curry School of Education at the University of Virginia and is an active member of charities, says Sailing Anarchy tried to "persuade the public and certain individuals that [he] is a con artist who has stolen millions of dollars from people."

************ says he has "never stolen anything, let alone millions," and demands general, special and punitive damages from Sailing Anarchy, Tempesta and Block for libel and slander.

The CEO is represented by Barry Langberg with Brownstein, Hyatt, Farber, Schreck of Los Angeles

Yet another PR night mare for Mr Clean and company.

 

Wonder if he'll go underwater filming, try and bust in to another regatta as a "media guy", even without his pink flag (reference Mac race fiasco), or just plain learn to keep his mouth shut :unsure:

All things being equal, Daniel M. ************ looks like a grade "A" douche.

If that's the best photo his professional stature can afford, well... words fail me.

 

Anyway, the douche has already resigned in shame as CEO of ************; how much more defamation of character can he accrue?

No sweat. Clean's a lawyer.

 

Here's the plaintiff...pointing out the bald dude with no pink flag.

 

02jabba-600.jpg

 

And the article about him and his ride at the time:

 

http://www.nytimes.c...ss/02jabba.html

 

Note the name of the page on NYT: "02Jabba"? Surely they didn't mean...

 

jabba.jpg

 

Maybe he should also throw some paper at them. Mr. ************, Langberg, Brownstein, Hyatt, Farber, and Schreck if you do sue the NYT for this obvious slander, I would like a 10% finder's fee.

 

Definitely popcorn time.

Either that is not quite right or it has been removed. But good grief, what the heck is this that shows up in the Bing search window when I clicked on the Sailing Anarchy forum link. I don't think I will follow this link.

Are people sure this is Real. If you read the actual complaint from the first post is states" Tempsta exchanged Emails with a woman.. on or around August 21, 2010. This lawyer can see the future. Some kind or Minority Report? They then reference a conversation that occured around August or Sptember 2010.

 

Yes I know probably a mistake, but really who makes a mistake like that on a Legal document and does not proofread before filing? Seems a but wierd?

Here's the bottom line...

 

From "FACTS - Page 4":

 

"19. ...Though a far cry from any objective definition of responsible journalism, Tempesta, Block and Sailing Anarchy have faced few challenges to their improper behavior."

 

I mean who couldn't see something like this coming? It is Anarchy after all.

 

That's why you always keep a nice defense fund set aside...with Anarchic International Group. Those guys are solid.

A glimpse into the future perhaps? Today is August 8th 2010 but the complaint references a conversation that took place on or about August 21st 2010. Hey Ed don't say a word on the Saturday after next.

That is one ugly fuck, wow.

Oh, and don't forget to call yourself a captain of industry...I think I'm going to be sick now.

+1 The SD County Superior Court Clerk stamped, dated, and initialed it. This thing has been filed!

 

I looked up the judge assigned to the case, Earl H. Maas III, and reviews show him to be a baffoon... Hopefully he'll make a real shit-show out of this.

I would bet that this has more to do with revenge and some misguided notion of clearing his name than it has to do with money. You can do a lot of damage suing someone even if you have no chance to win. Trials are expensive.

Everything I know about Internet slander I learned from "Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back."

 

Holden:
If the buzz is any indicator, that movie's gonna make some huge bank.

Jay
: What buzz?

Holden:
The Internet buzz.

Jay
: What the fuck is the Internet?

Holden:
The Internet is a communication tool used the world over where people can come together to bitch about movies and share pornography with one another.

__________________________________________________________________________________

Banky
: Stop
the movie
Sailing Anarchy
? What are you, crazy?

Jay
: All these assholes on the internet are calling us names because of this stupid fucking movie.

Banky
:
That's what the internet is for. Slandering others anonymously.
Stopping
the flick
Sailing Anarchy isn't gonna stop that.

Jay
: This isn't fair. We came to Hollywood, I fell in love. Fuckin', we got shot at, we stole a monkey, and I got punched in the motherfucking nuts by a guy named Cock-Knocker.

+1.

 

Entering court with conflict-of-interest charges & outcomes hanging around your neck...probably not the best idea, if counting on the sympathy vote.

 

Perhaps he hopes to boost his ~7.6 million shares of ************ Corp (down another 4% on today's breaking news) ...based on advice of SA's (PA's) very own MBA/CPA and master Tip-O-Hat investment strategist Bull Gaytor.

Would love to have a look at the SA insurance coverage right now...

 

Directors and Officers Coverage in effect?

Publishers Liability Coverage in effect?

Umbrella?

Cyber Liability?

 

Whether ************ case has merit or not, SA will still have to defend it...$$$$

Wow, in the complaint, the attorneys actually asserted that plaintiff “has never stolen anything.” So now defendants can seek facts to disprove that claim! Maybe they should depose everyone who knows him and see what pops up.
