Defense Attorney Sues Tucson Weekly for Defamationnew

The Courthouse News Services reports that Andrew Diodati has sued the Weekly, publisher Tom Lee and a staff writer for allegedly defaming him in a July story in which a former client and her new lawyer accused Diodati of botching a fraud case and overcharging the government. Diodati claims the story spurred investigations by Pima County and the State Bar of Arizona, and that his "reputation has been severely damaged." He is seeking $2.75 million in damages to make up for what he says was the Weekly's "reckless disregard for the truth." Reached by email, attorney D. Douglas Metcalf, who is representing the paper, says they "have no comment other than to say that the Weekly intends to defend the suit vigorously."
