Todd Witteles Hires Beverly Hills Lawyer to Defend Against Mike Postle Accusations1 year ago
One of Mike Postle’s $330million defamation lawsuit targets has fired back this week, Todd Witteles engaging the services a Beverly Hills law firm to fight against the alleged cheat’s legal action…
It was the Poker Fraud Alert radio show boss who first revealed Postle’s massive civil complaint against those he claims libelled and slandered him.
Among them were some of the game’s biggest names, including Daniel Negreanu, Joey Ingram, Phil Galfond’s poker company RunItOnce and Matt Berkey’s Solve For Why academy.
Witteles has chosen the law firm of Bensamochan, a primarily bankruptcy and civil litigation firm, whose principal, Eric Bensamochan, released the following statement:
"We believe this lawsuit against my client and the other defendants is utterly without merit and will be defended vigorously and aggressively. Any attempt to chill the first amendment rights of any individual or organization needs to be met with resistance. We look forward to disposing of this matter quickly."
Postle is being represented by Lowe and Associates, another Beverly Hills law firm, who filed the case in the California Superior Court, in the County of Sacramento.
The firm “are recognized for handling high profile cases” and generally operates in “a wide variety of legal matters in the music, television, and film industries,” according to their website.
Others targeted by Postle have yet to reveal their defence plans. Veronica Brill – the whistleblower who brought Postle’s combined unbelievable success and bizarre behaviour to public attention – launched a GoFundMe earlier in the month.
In it, she explained:
“I need to raise money for my own defense as we all need to file Anti-Slapp separately and that costs $20,000. If i raise enough i will consider accepting the suit and moving forward with discovery. In the case that I move forward with the suit and win, and get Mike to pay for my legal bills.”
That was topped up by Bill Perkins taking a keen interest and promising to cover the balance required to mount a defence against Postle’s accusations.
