(10-6-11) Julian Robertson, founder of Tiger Management, just can't file enough frivolous lawsuits.
In 2000, the litigious Robertson, who has a history of filing nuisance lawsuits, sued Business Week Magazine for $1 Billion because it was a "nice round number." This phony "defamation" lawsuit was settled with no money changing hands.
In 2005, failed hedge fund manager Julian Robertson sued publisher Uri Dowbenko, columnist Al Martin and the Al Martin Raw and Conspiracy Planet websites for "defamation."
Since that time, publisher Uri Dowbenko has defended himself pro-se -- without a lawyer -- in this David vs. Goliath legal battle, which is essentially a free speech issue -- but has instead hinged on judicial oversights by the US District Court - Southern District of New York.
After a summary judgment by the court, Julian Robertson is scheduled for his next court appearance for oral argument in the Second Circuit Court of Appeals at 500 Pearl Street, 9th Floor, in New York City on October 14, 2011 at 10 A.
