DEFAMATION / DEFAMATION PER SE ● PLAINTIFFS' CASE DISMISSED AND FEES AND COSTS AWARDED TO OUR CLIENT
Olympia Companies, LLC et al. v. Michael Kosor, JR. (A-17-765257-C)
Plaintiffs' complaint against our client was dismissed in its entirety under Nevada's anti-SLAPP statute, which further entitled our client to recovery of his reasonable attorney fees and costs. Our client was a candidate for the board of directors of his HOA when he was sued for defamation and defamation per se for statements he made concerning the governance of his HOA. Our firm substituted in for prior defense counsel after the district court initially denied the special motion to dismiss firm, and we succeeded in obtaining a reversal and remand from the Supreme Court of Nevada. Kosor v. Olympia Companies, LLC, 136 Nev. Adv. Op. 83, 478 P.3d 390 (2020). We then supplemented the briefing, argued before the district court and succeeded in obtaining a complete dismissal of all claims against our client. We then succesfully obtained a recovery of more than $200k in attorney fees and costs incurred, as well as a recovery of the maximum damages permitted by statute.
