Landlord's Attorney Sues Tenant For Defamation

Posted by Mark Smith on July 20, 1999 at 15:08:40:

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.
