Jennifer Allen Michael Arrington

Files defamation suit

9 May, 2013

Arrington files the suit (full text here) against Allen, his former girlfriend, after she accused him of raping and trying to kill her. It said she sought to:

[…] smear the plaintiff’s name on the Internet, to destroy his reputation, and to deter third persons from associating with him.

It alleges that Allen, who lives in San Francisco, was motivated by frustration over their ‘intermittent romantic involvement.’ The amount of damages sought isn’t specified but the figure is over $75,000.
