2019 Attorneys of the Year: Leonard Pozner/Sandy Hook defamation case
Leonard Pozner did not want to litigate whether a mass murder at Sandy Hook school in Newtown, Connecticut, really happened in 2012. If James Fetzer and Alex Jones want to perpetrate that canard, Pozner refused to assist them.
So Pozner, who lost his son Noah, sued Fetzer, the author of “Nobody Died at Sandy Hook,” for defamation for alleging in the book that Pozner released a false death certificate, a crime in Connecticut.
Jake Zimmerman and Genevieve Zimmerman secured a damage verdict for $450,000 against Fetzer. They did not earn a fee for the case and paid the costs themselves, with the assistance of Genevieve’s firm, Meshbesher & Spence.
