Georges Marciano Loses Defamation Lawsuit
The employees countersued for harassment and defamation. And this is where it really gets weird. Marciano didn't cooperate with pretrial proceedings or defend himself at the trial. Los Angeles County Superior Court Judge Elizabeth White excluded him from court proceedings earlier this year because he had repeatedly failed to show up at depositions. In response Marciano has taken his battle against the judge to his campaign website and blog saying that the judged denied him his rights. He has also sued her in federal court. He will also likely appeal the case.
