Case Conclusion Date: 02.21.2014
Practice Area: Libel and slander
Outcome: $180,000 Plaintiffs' Jury Trial Verdict
Description: A seven-member Douglas County jury found that the defendant defamed the plaintiffs when she, without having a duty to do so, gave two news media companies false and derogatory, video-recorded statements that she saw the plaintiffs feeding their daughter margarita at a restaurant in a Denver Metro area mall. The news media used portions of the defendant's video-recorded statements in broadcasts that reached hundreds of thousands of viewers and were later made available to the public via the Internet.
