Vancouver promoter Altaf Nazerali's lawyer will appear in the Supreme Court of British Columbia on Dec. 13, 2011, to apply for a declaration that Mark Mitchell and Patrick Byrne, the creators of the website www.deepcapture.com, are in contempt of court. Mr. Nazerali says that the pair have continued to defame him even after he obtained a court order that shut down deepcapture.com. They are still posting materials on the Internet accusing Mr. Nazerali of being a drug dealer and market manipulator, among other things.
Also appearing in court will be a lawyer for Mr. Byrne and Mr. Mitchell, who will ask to have Mr. Nazerali's lawsuit dismissed on jurisdictional grounds. They say there is no evidence anybody in B.C. viewed their writings, which would make the B.C. courts unsuitable for a defamation case. They also argue that the B.C. courts do not have jurisdiction over them as neither man has ever resided in B.C. (Mr. Mitchell lives in Illinois and Mr. Byrne, a naked short-selling conspiracist, is the chief executive officer of Overstock.com Inc., a Salt Lake City company.)
