Dealer Defamation Suit

Private dealer Paul Rusconi is suing actress Claire Forlani for defamation: "On July 27 of this year, Forlani allegedly ... sent out a mass email claiming Rusconi was selling art work that he knew had been forged 'and that he routinely defrauded his clients by vastly overcharging for the works he sold to them.'"

Rusconi is represented by Kaye Scholer, and seeks "at leat $25 million" in damages.
