More than 1 politician has been sued by Jeffrey Lansky.

Read this court record all the way through.

Interesting that this happens just when Brownlee may have announced a run for mayor of Maple Heights.

That one document that Lansky may wish disappears off the internet.

"Strategic lawsuit against public participation
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

A strategic lawsuit against public participation (SLAPP) is a lawsuit that is intended to censor, intimidate, and silence critics by burdening them with the cost of a legal defense until they abandon their criticism or opposition.[1]

The typical SLAPP plaintiff does not normally expect to win the lawsuit. The plaintiff's goals are accomplished if the defendant succumbs to fear, intimidation, mounting legal costs or simple exhaustion and abandons the criticism. A SLAPP may also intimidate others from participating in the debate. A SLAPP is often preceded by a legal threat. The difficulty is that plaintiffs do not present themselves to the Court admitting that their intent is to censor, intimidate or silence their critics. Hence, the difficulty in drafting SLAPP legislation, and in applying it, is to craft an approach which affords an early termination to invalid abusive suits, without denying a legitimate day in court to valid good faith claims."

Say what u will about Brownlee, but he's brought more transparency to Maple Heights gov't than any other politician in Maple Heights history.


That's probably one of the reasons city hall doesn't like him.

There are way too many politicians putting spies on facebook and flagging comments they don't like.
