LSSC’s clients Def Con Communications and Jeff Moss were sued for defamation and other claims in the Eastern District of Pennsylvania in the matter Christopher J. Hadnagy, et al. v. Jeff Moss and DEF CON Communications, Inc. (No. 22-cv-03060). According to the complaint, the claims arise out of statements published on Def Con’s website about a former participant in Def Con’s annual hacker conference in Las Vegas, Nevada.

With co-counsel Perkins Coie LLP, LSSC moved to dismiss on the ground that the Court lacked jurisdiction over the defendants. The Court agreed in a sixteen-page opinion, dismissing the claims and terminating the action.
