Fundraiser Started by Greg Bullough to Help With Legal Defense Against SLAPP Suit By Jim Worthington

Fundraiser Started by Greg Bullough to Help With Legal Defense Against SLAPP Suit By Jim Worthington | Newtown News of Interest | Scoop.it

A Bucks County man named in a defamation lawsuit filed by from Newtown Athletic Club and its owner Jim Worthington says it's "a bullying tactic" in his GoFundMe page where he seeks help for his legal bills.

 

Greg Bullough and Moveon.org are being sued over a petition Bullough made on Jan. 10 calling on businesses and groups to cut ties with the club after Worthington helped organize buses to Washington, D.C. on Jan. 6 for a political rally. After the rally, Trump supporters stormed the U.S. Capitol in what would become a deadly insurrection.

 

"This is a bullying tactic; it is a meritless SLAPP (Strategic Lawsuit Against Political Participation) case. However, even meritless cases cost money to defend," Bullough says on his fundraising page.
