Judges in the 11th Circuit affirmed a lower court’s ruling IN a case brought against U.K.-based Fly Victor. It included the charter broker’s boss, Clive Jackson, and other current and former executives. The court said the lawsuit lacked personal jurisdiction. Last week’s ruling means further action would need to be taken in England. Don’t Look Media had been seeking up to $30 million in a dispute over the website privatejet.com.
Private jet charter broker Fly Victor and its CEO Clive Jackson are the subject of a second lawsuit by Don’t Look Media and Louis Spagnuolo
As the strobe light turns. After filing a lawsuit in June seeking $30 million from U.K.-based private jet charter broker Victor and its founder Clive Jackson over the privatejet.com domain, Don’t Look Media, LLC (DLM), and Louis Spagnuolo have filed a second lawsuit.
This time DLM is seeking $3 million. It alleges Jackson and others of “publicly and falsely accusing it of criminal behavior, and thereby destroying its business’ reputation.”
“The allegations…are spurious claims which we emphatically deny,” says Clive Jackson, CEO of the U.K. based private jet broker
In its response, Victor provided bank records of over two dozen payments it says were made to the plaintiff as well as its notice to terminate the agreement dating from 2018.
Defendant Don’t Look Media had claimed to have not received any monies.
(Editor’s Note: Clyde & Co. says it did not issue a statement originally attributed to it in this article. In fact, the statement was provided by Alyssum, a client that Clyde & Co. represents in this litigation.)
Online private jet charter broker Fly Victor, its parent company, Alyssum, and CEO Clive Jackson are hitting back at Don’t Look Media, seeking dismissal of its $30 million RICO lawsuit filed in June over the website URL http://www.privatejet.com.
“Don’t Look Media and (its attorney) Farrow Law are shamelessly exploiting the judicial system to extort monies from Alyssum. This is a despicable act carried out by those that not only wish to damage our company but whose actions can only bring disrepute on the entire private industry,” Jackson told Private Jet Card Comparisons.
The lawsuit says in addition to lost fees and damages, Victor’s lack of required disclosures created a liability for fines of up to $32,000 per day over a multi-year period
