Randazza selected two pieces from the linked stories and claimed they were defamatory to him. He also tried to state that by linking to these stories,
publishers were responsible for the content of the links. There is no record anywhere of Randazza initiating a lawsuit against HuffPost or Ars Technica. There is also no record of HuffPost or Ars Technica settling with Marc Randazza outside of court. And of course, there is no record of Randazza winning a lawsuit against either of these media outlets.
Randazza must think he is the judge and jury in the United States, randomly assuming that pieces published in major publications as fact are defamation and false. The legal definition of defamation is “the act of making untrue statements about another which damages his/her reputation.” In order for Randazza to say that something is defamation, he must prove it to be untrue. Nowhere in the document does he do so. Randazza’s Definition of “Corrupt” is…. Corrupted Instead, Randazza argues that he is “not corrupt or dishonest.” The letter stated, “He has not guilty of ‘serious misconduct’ in his legal practice.” [sic]. “The allegation of him being corrupt is pure fabrication,” states the letter. The Merriam Webster definition of corrupt is “dishonest or illegal behavior.” By saying that Randazza is corrupt, no one is
accusing him of a crime, necessarily. They are simply saying that he is dishonest. Randazza was issued a public reprimand by The Florida Bar on Sept. 3, 2020 DISCIPLINE CASE #201500718 against Marc Randazza. The reprimand was related to his ethical violations in Nevada, where Randazza, as a porn attorney, was sued by the State Bar of Nevada on nine charges of violations.
On January 14, 2019, the Arizona State Bar issued a public reprimand and a suspension based upon some of the misconduct that took place in Nevada. A new disciplinary case was opened in Arizona and California based upon further information and documentation of alleged misconduct by Randazza, to include allegedly lying in court documents related to the Alex Jones case in Connecticut. However, beyond the reciprocal disciplinary proceedings, Randazza was not charged with any new violations and the Arizona suspension was not put into effect.
On May 2, 2019, in the Supreme Judicial Court for Suffolk County, Massachusetts, in a state bar disciplinary proceeding styled In re: Mark John Randazza, Case No. BD-2018-110, a hearing was
conducted, which included an additional alleged ethical violation that the bar counsel claimed the State Bar of Nevada ignored.
The Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court did not find this additional ethical violation existed and issued a stayed suspension of the same term as Nevada. The Florida Supreme Court conducted a similar reciprocal disciplinary proceeding; it found no aggravating factors, with the Referee finding that there was “no clear and convincing evidence to suggest that anything [Randazza] may have done on behalf of his other clients was actually adverse to” his complaining clients. Thus, Randazza was given a reprimand and one year probation in Florida.
The State Bar of Nevada charged Randazza for violating Nevada Rules of Professional Conduct on nine counts. He broke the rules in regards to: § Communication, § Conflict of Interest: Current Clients, § Conflict of Interest: Current Clients: Specific
§ Imputation of Conflicts of Interest, § Safekeeping Property, § Declining or Terminating Representation,
Advisor, § Restrictions on Right to Practice, § Misconduct.
Randazza two-timed his clients, who were pornographers, by working for other clients, who were also pornographers. He “solicited illicit payoffs,” said HuffPost. In 2010, Randazza tried to bribe a website so that he wouldn’t sue them, again. This solicitation was a violation of the Nevada Rules of Professional Conduct.
The State Bar of Nevada sued for the suspension of Randazza’s license in 2018 with violations of ethics. His license was suspended for a year. However, the State Bar did not put the suspension into effect. Randazza actually pleaded guilty to two violations: a bribe and a shady loan. He appealed his suspension to the Nevada Supreme Court, but was rejected. Randazza Had To Be Fired Even By InfoWars’ Alex Jones
HuffPost writes that “outrageous” Randazza is “curiously chummy” with fascists and racists. Randazza has also represented several Neo-Nazis in court, including Andrew Anglin, who published the address of a Jewish realtor on the Nazi website The Daily Stormer.
But “rude” Randazza was so bad that even conspiracy theorist Alex Jones had to fire him. The InfoWars founder was told by a Connecticut judge that Randazza was “tainted.” The same judge accused Randazza of “serious misconduct.” In addition, Randazza lied while filing claims for Jones in the state of Connecticut, where he was not licensed to practice.
