In this litigation, plaintiff Phaedra Parks sued our client, Angela Stanton, alleging that Stanton’s memoir, Lies of a Real Housewife, was defamatory. Stanton filed counterclaims for tortious interference with contract and bad faith litigation, alleging that Parks’ lawsuit was frivolous and was designed to shut down the publication of truthful information. Parks filed motions to dismiss the counterclaims, and for summary judgment as to the counterclaims. In the orders below, the court denies Parks’ motions.
A hearing is set on Stanton’s motion for summary judgment as to Parks’ original lawsuit on April 20, 2015 in the Gwinnett County State Court.
