Most readers know that on July 8, 2015, GA was one of 3 SLAPP victims awarded in the $276,677 judgment against SLAPP suit filers Lane Bajardi and Kim Cardinal.
"The Court finds the Bajardis claims were frivolous, were pursued in bad faith, and with the purpose of harassment, delay and malicious injury in violation of N.J.S.A. 2A:15:15-59.1"
-The Honorable Judge Patrick Arre Opinion, July 8, 2015
In fact, the victims presented some much clear and convincing evidence during the trial that the Court decreed the "public figure" Plaintiffs' conduct "at a minimum demonstrates bad faith, and approaches a fraud upon the Court."
Remember, the Bajardis repeatedly claimed they were "defamed" by being called "political operatives" in a SLAPP which demanded "damages" of $2,000,000.

This email provides a glimpse behind the curtain about efforts of a political operative duo to influence Hoboken election outcomes.
