Some of you may be aware that Rachel Riley (and her partner-in-litigation threats, Tracy-Ann Oberman) has launched a court case against someone else on a matter connected with my own.
But while I had written an article, all Jane Heybroek did was retweet a link to one (not mine; one of the articles on which my own piece was based).
You can find details of the case on her own CrowdJustice site, here. And feel free to contribute to her funds if you can.
The fact that Ms Riley is taking other people to court over this matter suggests that she is not about to give up her pursuit of me, despite the evidence that is mounting against her position.
It also suggests that I am right in my belief that she is hoping to drain my funds – and those of Ms Heybroek – to ensure that we become unable to sustain our cases and have to seek a settlement, or let her win, before any trial takes place.
I wonder whether she thinks opening a case against another person will make this easier to achieve – assuming that there are a limited number of people willing to support us, and therefore a limited amount of money available for our CrowdJustice campaigns.
Only you can prove her wrong.
My legal team is about to write the detailed defence against Ms Riley’s latest claim against me (she had to re-word it after a judge’s ruling earlier this month) – and I reckon it will kill her claim against me stone dead, if it gets a hearing in court.
My guess is that it will also kill the claim against Ms Heybroek.
We need to get it heard in court.
As I have mentioned before, defamation (libel) cases are extremely expensive. Even though nearly £50,000 has been provided to fund my case through this site (so far), most of it has been used getting it to this point.
If you can’t contribute more yourself right now, that’s perfectly understandable. But please encourage your friends to visit this site – https://crowdjustice.com/case/mike-sivier-libel-fight/ – and contribute. And put a little more in the pot yourself, if you can.
The average amount donated per person is less than £20. That’s not a lot to give in return for justice.
On Twitter, you could tweet in support, quoting the address of the appeal. I’ve seen a lot of tweets supporting this case – but usually from the same few people. If you’re not one of them – and you are on Twitter – it doesn’t take much effort and it could make a huge difference.
Post a link to Facebook, asking your friends to pledge. I haven’t seen many of these at all, and Facebook is far more influential than Twitter. I’d like to! If you do this, feel free to let me know.
On other social media platforms, please mention the campaign there, quoting the appeal address.
It would be easy to tell yourself that you’ve done your bit. After all, this campaign has been running for a few months and there’s a new one to grab your attention.
That is how Ms Riley could win.
If you believe in justice – and if you’re reading this, I know you do – then that’s the last thing you want for this case.
Let’s set a precedent for 2020 with a big boost for this campaign – and keep it going strong into the future.
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.
