NY judge tosses billionaire Bacon's defamation case v Canada's Nygard
Yahoo News - 7 months
A New York state judge on Wednesday threw out billionaire hedge fund manager Louis Bacon's $100 million defamation lawsuit against Canadian fashion designer Peter Nygard, saying the case tied to their long-running feud over neighboring properties in the Bahamas belongs there. Bacon, the founder of Moore Capital Management LP in New York, had accused Nygard in the lawsuit of engineering a "malicious" smear campaign against him including street rallies, bogus YouTube videos, and attempts to falsely link him to arson, bribery, drug smuggling, the Ku Klux Klan and murder. Wednesday's decision may spell an end to the New York state court litigation.

Canadian designer Nygård links NY billionaire Bacon to Bahamas fire
Yahoo News - almost 2 years
By Jonathan Stempel NEW YORK (Reuters) - Canadian fashion designer Peter Nygård escalated his acrimonious U.S. legal battle with Louis Bacon, saying the billionaire hedge fund manager may have driven a groundskeeper to set a fire that heavily damaged Nygård's neighboring Bahamas beachfront estate. Nygård made the accusation in a countersuit filed Wednesday in a New York state court in Manhattan, where he sought $50 million to punish Bacon for an alleged years-long "vendetta" that he said included harassment and frivolous litigation. The countersuit responded to Bacon's own defamation lawsuit accusing the chairman of Winnipeg-based Nygård International of orchestrating an "obsessive, deliberate and malicious" smear campaign against him for 4-1/2 years.
