Doe v. Rafaloff, Supreme Court, New York County, Judge Omansky, New York Law Journal, July 20, 1999 (print edition only):
An attorney sued for defamation after defendant filed a disciplinary complaint against him. The defendant complained that the attorney made libelous statements during a landlord-tenant proceeding. The court summarily dismissed the attorney's suit, ruling that complaints filed with a grievance committee are absolutely privileged and defamatory statements contained in them are not actionable as a matter of law.
