Remember that court ruling in Larry Klayman’s divorce/custody case that suggested that he may have touched his children inappropriately? He’s now suing cartoonist Ken Avidor for quoting that court ruling, something I have done as well. It was filed a year ago and dismissed but now Klayman has refiled it.
Failed Second American Revolutionary and Judicial Watch founder Larry Klayman has refiled his defamation lawsuit against City Pages blogger Aaron Rupar, cartoonist Ken Avidor, City Pages, Phoenix area media and Voice Media of Denver, court filings in the Florida Middle District court system reveal.
As we noted last month in On eve of Larry’s revolution, judge grants motion to dismiss in Klayman vs. City Pages et al., the case was dismissed without prejudice, meaning that Klayman could refile the lawsuit.
Once again, Klayman calls Rupar a “radical pro-homosexual activist” while Avidor is merely a “pro-homosexual activist” who where out to defame Klayman because he represented Bradlee Dean in a separate defamation lawsuit brought against Rachel Maddow, MSNBC, local journalist Andy Birkey and the now-defunct Minnesota Independent.
As Klayman always does, his complaint is really just a list of political grievances and accusations that the people he’s suing are raging liberals and gay rights activists, as though that has any relevance to the legal arguments. I’m sure this will be dismissed again, hopefully with prejudice this time so it can’t be refiled. I’m as open to such a suit as Avidor was because I’ve quoted that court ruling as well. Klayman is dumb, but he isn’t dumb enough to think he has any chance of winning such a suit. He’s just trying to bully people into silence.
