Believe it or not, we’ve been served by Hawaii attorney Peter Giftopolous. Described by one blogger as a “conosueir of douchery”, Giftopolous finally found someone who claims he’s been defamed by Earles & Jensen’s forthcoming 2XCD, ‘Just Farr A Laugh, Vol. I & II’.
I’d love to tell you what I really think of this creep and his tactics, but on the advice of Matador’s lawyers, I’ve surely written too much already. But I can promise you that nothing else is going to get in the way of our releasing ‘Just Farr A Laugh’. Giftopolous might’ve delayed the street date once, but we’re not gonna let him do it again, no matter the risk to our company’s future.
Sadly, the legal fees we’ve spent on the case thus far have been astronomical. As a result, we’ve had to dramatically reduce our print advertising budget this spring — for instance, we had about 3 full color pages ready to roll in the next issue of Harp, and I shouldn’t have to tell you what happened when cancelled our contract.
That’s right. THE MAGAZINE WENT OUT OF BUSINESS. All because of attorney Peter Giftopolous and his desperate clients. But we’re not going out like that. See you in court, Peter.
