Defamation Complaint Dismissed Against Firm’s Client

Crescendo Designs, LTD v. Reses, Index No. 17421/13 (Suffolk County, February 2015).
The Firm obtained dismissal at the pleading stage of a defamation action brought by a vendor against the Firm’s client who had posted a negative online review on a popular website. The Court held that the online review only concerned a customer’s personal dissatisfaction with the goods and services received and therefore granted a motion to dismiss the complaint.

Partner Andrew Mandelbaum worked on this matter.
