Rachel Riley launches court proceedings against Vox Political writer – donate to the defence fund now!

Rachel Riley is claiming a huge amount of money. It seems she is still trying to use her wealth to bully me.

Rachel Riley has filed proceedings against me for libel. She wants £50,000 plus costs – and her costs are likely to be a six-figure sum – along with an injunction for me not to repeat the claims against her that you can find here.

That is a terrifying amount of money for a person of modest means to face. Remember what I’ve been saying all along – that this is a matter of wealth trying to beat justice? I think that particular case has been proved.

She is also claiming that this crowdfunding page is an aggravating factor – that my appeal for help after she tried to bully me with her overwhelmingly superior funds has made matters worse. How do you feel about that?

She can only take money from me if she wins, though. And she won’t win in court.

But we need to make sure this case gets to court.

Costs for a preliminary hearing are likely to be more than £20,000 – and after the work my legal team has done already, my fund stands at only a little more than £4,000.

So I need a bit of help.

I’m going to scrape around my savings and put everything I can into the fund, and I’m appealing for you to find whatever you can spare, to help get this into court – and then have Ms Riley’s case struck out.

I can’t go into the details, for obvious reasons, but my prospect of winning is good. So please help make it better.

You may be familiar with the following requests:

If you haven’t done so already, please email five of your friends, asking them to pledge to this case.

You could also post a link to Facebook, asking your friends to pledge. Again, the address is https://www.crowdjustice.com/case/mike-sivier-libel-fight/

If you’re on Twitter, you could tweet in support, quoting the address of the appeal.

And if you can afford it, please consider pledging some more cash yourself.

I have spent the last few months urging others facing the same accusations to hold their nerve, and now I need to hold mine.

Your continued support will help me do that.

Have YOU donated to my crowdfunding appeal, raising funds to fight false libel claims by TV celebrities who should know better? These court cases cost a lot of money so every penny will help ensure that wealth doesn’t beat justice.

    I think the reason this litigious pair seem to sue quite freely is cos they’ve got a lawyer on tap. When I looked on his twitter it said based in Israel. Although one of them is wealthy, don’t know about the other one I can’t believe they are funding all these legal cases out of their own money due to the huge expense. Could it be the lawyer is giving his services free or are getting funding from elsewhere, possibly supporters!!

    It’s not fair as other people aren’t on equal footing and have access to lawyers/ funds as they do,

    What is bizarre is how their lawyer has been in court and fined for sending abusive tweets himself but taking other people to court for tweets.

    You are a very brave person as other people have just capitulated.

      How do you know other people have capitulated? What is your source? And please don’t think for one moment that I don’t believe you…… I’m genuinely interested to know where you came by the information. Thanks

    I thought that I’d posted a comment; maybe, it was on the donation page? I’m about to find myself out of work so, it’s not much, I’m sorry but I hope that it goes some way to setting the record straight. Justice should be available for all, not just those with deep pockets, or those with friends who have. I found myself requiring legal assistance but had to go without and nearly lost my mind into the bargain. I hope that the same fate doesn’t befall you, especially with how things are with Mrs. Mike.

      It was on the donations page. Thank you very much for yours, and for the supportive words.
