Tarkanian files defamation lawsuit against Rosen over campaign ads

Source: Las Vegas Sun


Defeated Republican congressional candidate Danny Tarkanian has filed a defamation lawsuit against his opponent, Democrat Jacky Rosen, concerning ads that aired toward the end of the campaign. The lawsuit, which also names Rosen’s campaign as a defendant, was filed today in Clark County District Court.

Tarkanian, who was running in Nevada’s 3rd Congressional District, is seeking damages worth more than $8 million as well as reimbursement for attorney’s fees.

The lawsuit alleges that Rosen and her campaign produced and disseminated an ad to television outlets, YouTube and Facebook that contained false and defamatory statements that accused Tarkanian of setting up “13 fake charities that preyed on vulnerable seniors” as part of a telemarketing scheme.

Tarkanian, son of the late UNLV basketball coach Jerry Tarkanian, has said he was not aware of any illegal activity when helped set up the companies and wasn’t involved in their day-to-day activities. In 2009, he received a $150,000 defamation settlement from then-state Sen. Mike Schneider, a Democrat, who tried to tie him to the schemes.
