Why would Dr. Malone make his claim so large — over 25 million dollars? The effect of what he is doing should be obvious. It threatens us with financial ruin...
Yes, this Dr. Malone, now the self-appointed champion of free speech, is the same Dr. Malone who is suing the Breggins for $25 million to try to stop them from publicly criticizing his ideology or political conduct and the same Dr. Malone who has been trying to muzzle many others in the health freedom movement. ~ View on Twitter
"As a direct result of Defendants’ insulting words, Dr. Malone suffered presumed damages, actual damages and special damages, including, but not limited to, insult, pain, embarrassment, humiliation, mental suffering, injury to his reputation, loss of business and income, career damage, lost future earnings, costs and other out-of-pocket expenses, in a sum to be determined by the Jury, but not less than $25,000,000.00." ...READ MORE
I have been muzzled for the last two months. I have been instructed not to speak freely and not to speak my mind to friends, verbally or in writing, on the internet, in media, or in personal correspondence.

After making his initial legal threat to the Breggins verbally on the phone, Dr. Malone's lawyer sent a Demand Letter on September 26, 2022 to the Breggins: "Dr. Malone demands that you retract the false and defamatory Statements, issue a written apology, and fairly and fully compensate him for the presumed and actual damages suffered, including loss of income, insult, pain, humiliation, embarrassment, mental suffering and injury to his reputation."
Our attorney sent a letter rejecting the demands on the grounds that the Breggins had said nothing defamatory. The formal legal lawsuit complaint was filed a month later on October 30, 2022. Both the demand letter and the complaint are very confusing because several of the alleged statements were not even made by Dr. Breggin but by people characterizing his work. This is apparent on a brief examination. Especially since Dr. Malone is a public figure, none of these remarks are defamatory but represent differing opinions on matters of public concern.
