Vic Fedeli Defamation Suit

Optimum Publishing International and its parent company have retained counsel and served a Notice of Intent to Defend the defamation lawsuit brought by Victor Fedeli in response to the publication of Takedown: The Attempted Political Assassination of Patrick Brown.

We intend to defend the publication of Takedown fully and vigorously in court. In the days ahead, we will be filing a Statement of Defence that responds to the allegations made by Mr. Fedeli in greater detail.

Optimum Publishing will not be intimidated by multi-million dollar defamation suits, and will continue to give authors a platform to take on powerful institutions, governments, corporations and individuals, in order to tell stories that are in the public interest. Our most recent book, Bad Blood, The Unspeakable Truth on the Tainted Blood Disaster, is another example of such book.
