Plaintiff’s Allegations Questioned by Ziegler’s Attorneys
In a recent motion filed by attorneys representing Ziegler, it is stated that the plaintiff, Biden, has failed to provide any evidence to support the claim that the defendants accessed his personal computer or any of his private services. Ziegler’s legal team argues that the plaintiff’s allegations lack substantial grounds.
Protected Activity or Invasion of Privacy?
Ziegler’s attorneys further argue that their client’s act of sharing the laptop’s contents through posts on social media should be considered protected activity. They emphasize that the involvement of a public figure like Biden and the public importance of the matter validate their client’s actions.
The Lawsuit: Allegations of Spreading Pornographic Material
Biden’s lawsuit, filed in [insert year], accuses Ziegler, his company Marco Polo USA, and ten unidentified associates of spreading explicit content from the laptop. The lawsuit claims that “tens of thousands of emails, thousands of photos, and dozens of videos and recordings” were shared, all of which were deemed pornographic in nature.
Freedom of Speech vs. Illegal Activities
Claiming that Biden’s lawsuit seeks to suppress Ziegler’s constitutional right to freedom of speech, his legal team argues that the lawsuit is an attempt to hinder their client’s exercise of his rights. They maintain that while Ziegler may hold extreme opinions, engaging in illegal activities to promote his agenda is not justified.
Questioning Jurisdiction and Connection
In their motion to dismiss, Ziegler’s attorneys raise doubts about the connection between their client and the state of California, where the lawsuit was filed. They assert that this lack of connection invalidates the jurisdiction of the court in California. It is worth noting that Ziegler currently faces nine criminal charges in the same California court where he has filed three civil lawsuits.
Additional Lawsuits and Legal Action
Biden is involved in other legal battles as well. Besides suing Ziegler and Marco Polo USA, he has filed lawsuits against Rudy Giuliani, lawyer Robert Costello, and former Overstock CEO Patrick Byrne. These lawsuits allege illegal access to his laptop and defamation, respectively.
