Insurance Company's Defamation and Copyright Suit Against Blogger Thrown Out

A recent suit filed by Sedgwick Claims Management Services against blogger Robert Delsman has been thrown out by Northern California District Judge.

The blogger actually represented himself in this case and filed the motion that the court construed as a motion to dismiss. While it wasn't exactly eloquent or artful it did the trick and showed that Sedgwick was using the lawsuit to intimidate him and infringe on his freedom of speech. A California law, known as the SLAPP Act, protects citizens from intimidation through litigation brought by private interests.

This has been a real “Mr. Toads wild ride” and I am happy that I can rest for the moment. It is not uncommon for me to receive numerous communications daily from sick, injured or disabled people daily. Many of these people are in a really tight spot, some losing their families, health, homes and all the rest. This “victory” is well deserved for those that are unable to protect themselves against the truly despicable characters at Sedgwick CMS…. And Sedgwick can always appeal to the 9th Circuit. Through all of this my wife has stood by my side the entire time(actually holding me up when I was too sick to do so myself)I love you Kelli, thanks for being my best friend! Rob Delsman
