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.
In March, Pioneer Press staff writer Leslie Brooks Suzukamp reported in Florida-based lawyer sues City Pages for defamation:
A Florida lawyer has hit City Pages with a $1.4 million defamation lawsuit for a story last fall that said the lawyer inappropriately touched his children.
Larry Klayman's lawsuit, announced Monday, March 25, said City Pages sought to hurt the attorney in retaliation for Klayman's representation of Bradlee Dean, the controversial anti-gay preacher and founder of an Annandale-based group You Can Run But You Cannot Hide.
The City Pages story, which ran Sept. 28 last year, said an appeals court in Ohio had ordered Klayman to pay his ex-wife $325,000 in attorney's fees, and that the order noted a lower court magistrate had heard evidence of sexual abuse from his children's pediatrician, who reported it to children's services, and from a social worker at that agency.
The story said the social worker's findings were changed to "unsubstantiated," but the magistrate found that Klayman acted in a "grossly inappropriate manner" with one of his children, although his conduct may not have been sexual....
