I finally got the good news: Vanessa Kachadurian, the insidious blogger that attacks the top-performing charter schools throughout America, has lost the lawsuit that was filed to her by an adoption firm named Hopscotch a couple of years ago. The law firm “Internet Law Center”, with regard to this lawsuit, issued a press release on November 15, 2011.
You should definitely take a look the full text of the press release, but I am also going to make a couple of comments on this meaningful victory against Vanessa Kachadurian.
Here is the second paragraph of the press release:
“Hopscotch and its founder Robin Sizemore, filed suit against Kachadurian in federal court in Fresno in December 2009 in response to a vicious cyber-smear campaign that began in 2006. The plaintiffs were merely one of several adoption and educational institutions to be targeted for abuse by Kachadurian under multiple identities.”
I think the last part of the paragraph is crucial, because the press release implicitly mentions Vanessa’s shameless attacks on various American charter schools. I predict that this lawsuit can constitute an example for those schools. If I were in the shoes of those schools, I would definitely file a lawsuit against Vanessa Kachadurian, but I do not think they will ever attempt to do that unless Vanessa is taken seriously by some people.
Let us also hear from Bennet Kelley, the founder of Internet Law Center, who won this lawsuit against Vanessa:
“It is a gutsy move for a small non-profit like Hopscotch to say ‘enough’ and take on someone like Kachadurian who can devastate a small business,” said Internet Law Center founder Bennet Kelley. This is especially true when, Kelley added, “cyber abuse often escalates online and leads to offline threats of violence in over one in four cases according to data compiled by WHO@ (www.haltabuse.org).”
“Small victories like these collectively send an important message that the internet is no longer the ‘Wild, Wild West’ and that you can and will be held accountable for your actions.”
Bennet is 100% right. People like Vanessa Kachadurian hide themselves under many fake nicknames and they attack innocent people and organizations just because they hate the nationality of people working at these organizations. When they are confronted or their tricks are revealed, this time they defend themselves by playing the “Freedom of Speech” card. In the example of Vanessa Kachadurian, is it obvious that Vanessa is a xenophobic Armenian, who hates Turks and Azerbaijanis. When you have that background picture on Twitter, it means that you are xenophobic:
Notice that the “eagle” has Turkey and Azerbaijan in its claws.
You might wonder if it is bad to defame other people. Of course, it is. I am personally a fervent supporter of freedom of speech, but your freedom could transgress the limits to the extent that it sets the freedom and honor of other people at naught.
For example, we have ADL (Anti-Defamation League) since 1913 that defends the rights of Jewish people. If defamation were to be something good, this organization would have never been founded.
To long story short, from now on, all members of Goose Network should be careful when attacking and defaming innocent people.
Justice prevails sooner or later.
