Two months after a federal judge dismissed FireClean’s defamation case against an Arizona blogger, the gun lubricant maker re-filed allegations in another state.Forum-shopping is a dickish move.
FireClean’s owners, brothers David and Edward Sugg, maintain their argument that Andrew Tuohy, owner of Vuurwapen Blog, made false claims about their product in his analysis of the lubricant’s chemical makeup.
The Suggs say every day since Tuohy published his findings they have suffered $100 in emotional stress and another $100 in reputational harm. They also blame Tuohy’s work for more than $150,000 in lost revenue.
Worse, for them, every time they pull this shit, the "FireClean is Canola Oil" line gets a fresh airing all over the gun blogs and other social media. It's a repetitive case of the Streisand Effect.
I'd have to wonder of the Suggs are advising the Trump campaign. For they seem to have the same level of butthurt.
