Los Angeles Businessman Bradley S. Cohen Is Awarded $38.3 Million by Las Vegas Jury

Los Angeles Businessman Bradley S. Cohen is awarded $38.3 million by Las Vegas Jury on defamation per se and false light invasion of privacy claims in Bernie Madoff comparison website.

After almost four years waiting for trial, on February 17, 2016, an eight-member jury panel in the US District Court in Las Vegas, Nevada entered a unanimous verdict in a civil trial in favor of Los Angeles businessman Bradley S. Cohen, awarding him and his company Cohen Asset Management, Inc. $35.3 million in damages for defamation per se and false light invasion of privacy, and an additional $3 million in punitive damages against the defendants, a disgruntled former tenant and his company, and an employee, who posted a website falsely comparing Mr. Cohen and his business to the notorious Bernie Madoff.  Mr. Madoff is presently serving 150 years in prison for a fraudulent Ponzi scheme uncovered in 2008.

Lead trial counsel on the case for Plaintiffs was Robert D. Mitchell, Esq. of Tiffany & Bosco, P.A., Phoenix, Arizona.  Mr. Mitchell was accompanied by attorneys Anthony M. Glassman, Esq. of Glassman Browning of Beverly Hills, California and Sarah K. Deutsch, Esq. also of Tiffany & Bosco, P.A.

Mr. Cohen and his counsel express their heartfelt gratitude for the jury’s decision, and believe the jury’s verdict sends a very powerful message to those who would abuse the Internet to defame others.

Questions should be directed to Plaintiffs’ lead counsel, Robert Mitchell, Esq. at (602) 722-3855.
