Klayman Sues City Pages And Phoenix New Times For Defamation

OCALA, Fla., March 25, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Activist attorney Larry Klayman today announced filing a lawsuit in federal court here (Case 5:13-cv-00143-ACC-PRL) against City Pages of Minnesota and Phoenix New Times, charging that they defamed him by stating falsely that he inappropriately touched his children.

As alleged in the complaint, "The defendants in this lawsuit are ultra leftist publications who are maliciously using my children to harm me in retaliation for my legal representation of conservative clients fighting radical homosexual and pro illegal immigrant agendas."

"To falsely use my young children to try to harm my clients and me is the lowest of the low and these ultra leftist publications and their reporters will pay a heavy legal price for doing so," said Klayman.

"These companies and certain named reporters are being sued for defamation and defamation by inference under Florida law, for having widely published domestically and internationally false and misleading statements that I committed and was convicted of the crime of sexually abusing my own two children." 

To the contrary, and as alleged in the complaint, "these charges were previously leveled for strategic purposes by my ex wife, typical in a custody proceeding, which I had initiated years ago. They were dismissed by the Cleveland Department of Children and Families, and the Sheriff and District Attorney of Cuyahoga County," alleges Klayman. In addition, the complaint alleges that Klayman had voluntarily taken and passed a polygraph test, while his ex wife refused to do so over her false charges. And, the complaint also alleges that the children were coached, but still refused to implicate Klayman.

The complaint (see further alleges that "defendants negligently, intentionally and maliciously sought to severely injure Klayman in retaliation for his legal representation of Bradlee Dean, a Christian preacher whose group, You Can Run But You Cannot Hide, teaches Judeo-Christian values to school children" to reject being taught the homosexual lifestyle and had sued MSNBC's Rachel Maddow for having defamed them by stating that they advocated killing gays and lesbians.

The defamatory attacks on Klayman are also alleged to be in retaliation for his legal representation of voters in Arizona opposing a recall petition to remove Sheriff Joe Arpaio from office. The complaint alleges the publications promote radical gay, lesbian and transgender "rights" and pro illegal immigrant agendas.
