HELP ME FIGHT A SLAPP SUIT
$26,275 of $75k goal
I am trying to raise money so that I don't have to cave in. I'm going to fight this case as hard as I can. But, if I win the case and there is money left over, everything remaining will go to Opportunity Village.
I think that Miller has defamed me too but I will NOT use any funds for a defamation counterclaim. I believe in the marketplace of ideas. My ideas are stronger than his. He can say whatever he wants about me -- I am not using the courts the way he does. I'm taking the high road.
You can watch the videos that led to this, click here.
You can read the court filing here.
Thank you for your support.
Therefore, while my legal bills are not mounting at the time, we are not out of the woods yet. Remember, anything we don't use, goes Opportunity Village. So I'm still fundraising, but I want everyone to know what is going on.
I will of course continue to up you all
Defend the 1st Amendment and skepticism!
Fighting this is going to take even more though.
Remember, whatever I don't use fighting this lawsuit is going directly to Opportunity Village.
Almost a 1/3 of the way to goal at $19K+.
Thank you all so much!!
We still have a ways to go, so make your voice heard and donate if you can or share this everywhere!!
Could you link to a copy of the actual complaint? I'm a lawyer (not your lawyer, or even an Arizona lawyer), and I'd like to take a closer look at it. If it's a copyright case, and the defendant wins, the defendant can collect attorney's fees. http://www.billboard.com/biz/articles/news/1429304/case-analysis-recovering-defendants-attorneys-fees-in-copyright. I would imagine that you'd easily win with a fair use defense, so I'd be interested in seeing the specific complaint.
My fb/Godless.Heathenz and G+ GodlessHeathenTheOriginal &Twitter @G0DLESS_HEATHEN have been promoting you for the past 24 hours among other great atheist bloggers such as Hemant Mehta... and since you've gained $5k Now you go get your Lawyers and take away what's left of his dignity. you can now counter sue. I hope your gofundme go viral and you kick ass and isn't it funny how Healer Adam Miller vanished from social media... all his accounts closed including his website, almost as if he's destroying evidence....
"An atheist cannot definitively prove there is no God and a Christian cannot definitively prove there is so who cares." Most American Christians use a book written by a bunch of dudes in the English Middle ages to suit King James. I.e. Long after the original text was written down - and before that passed by word of mouth over many centuries. Chinese whispers has nothing on that. The difference is that atheists, as a rule, don't try to prove there isn't a god(s). We do, however, have incalculable amounts of logic and hard science on our side. Atheism as a kick-back against religion is a religion but that's equally illogical. This lady isn't dismissing faith - she's calling out a charlatan and a fraud. It's really that simple.
if this actually makes it to court - I will definitely donate. If you decide to counter sue, I will definitely donate. If you decide to start suing all obnoxious pricks like this, i will continue donating. :) Thank you for fighting for all of us -- it could be anyone of us that had called him out, but he decided to pick you.
You should be able to have this frivolous SLAPP suit thrown out on a demur. There is no prima facia defamation in your video. However if the lawsuit does go to court, it could be used as a precedence case to shut down the SLAPP suits of future swindlers who rip off unsuspected people with real illness and then sue the people who expose them. I wish you luck!!! Atheist Survival Guide will be closely following this case.
Until my sister got hit with frivolous lawsuit , I never really paid to much attention to idiots like Adam Miller ..I would like to thank Mr. Miller in opening my eyes I will be staying away from folks like you .. Love you sister !!! As I have seen in some comments " right in the neck " Char ❤️❤️
Science has been wasting its time all along, he can heal all sorts. As his youtube/facebook/website is down I will assume rational people might have explained to him that he really is not a medical professiona. But his site cannot hide from google. - Look at all the ailments he works on! http://webcache.googleusercontent.com/search?q=cache:http://adam-healer.com/healing-sessions/
Posted this to Adult Nerdfighters, a page of about 9,000 people, most of whom are insanely active with the page, and almost all of whom can't stand this kind of thing, I can't do much to support financially right now, but I have enough of an outreach to do my best to get the word out. Hope everything goes well with this, word is getting around fast, so that should help.
I wish you luck in winning your fight. We have been trying to raise money for my husband to walk again and can't seem to get the kind of attention that you have drawn, nor the donationd! What I would give to see my awesome man with a smile from ear to ear because he is not serving a life sentence in a wheelchair. We are here on go fund me as "please help a wonderful man walk again" we need at least 60k in order to make his dream a reality. I think we are at $1500 since March. Any love showed and shared is appreciated.
"No offense but maybe you shouldn't have called out a name." If you're going to shout things from the mountain tops (post them publicly on the internet), expect to get called out from the mountain tops (posted publicly on the internet.) If there's a missionary going door to door that never uses the internet, sure, she shouldn't make a video calling out that hypothetical guy.
I wouldn't mind you counter sue him. But it is up to you...
