Important Notes:
In this legal case involving defamation, the plaintiff, Adam Payne, accused Kyone Cohen and Reginald Sinclair of falsely calling him corrupt and claiming he bribed them. The court applied a four-part test to assess the defamation claim:

  1. The false statement as fact: Mr. Cohen’s admission that he attempted to bribe Mr. Payne satisfied this requirement.
  2. Publication to a third party: Mr. Cohen spoke with various individuals and Weazel News, publicly making the statements.
  3. Fault amounting to at least negligence: Mr. Payne faced inquiries and investigations as a result of these statements.
  4. Damages or harm caused: Mr. Payne’s public image suffered due to these allegations.

Final Verdict:
The court found in favor of Mr. Payne. Mr. Cohen faced charges of perjury, obstruction of justice, and civil contempt. He had the option to post a public apology on Y and pay a $2,000 fine or skip the apology and pay a $30,000 fine, with a deadline of October 10, 2023, to avoid additional penalties.
