When a high profile public official was subjected to multiple instances of slander and defamation by a media outlet, he called CMZ. Slander and defamation laws, especially pertaining to public officials, are complex and these cases are very difficult to prove. Through extensive discovery, we were able to prove the false statements were made recklessly with the intent to harm our client. The media outlet refused to settle and insisted on a trial by jury. After hearing the overwhelming evidence, the jury agreed with CMZ and awarded significant damages.
