Newburgh Heights Mayor Trevor Elkins suing Channel 5 for ‘outlandish’ defamatory story—Cleveland Scene

Newburgh Heights Mayor Trevor Elkins and four Newburgh Heights village councilpeople have filed a scorching lawsuit against News Channel 5. They allege that a November story by reporter Jonathan Walsh was false and defamatory.

A complaint filed Thursday morning in the Cuyahoga County Court of Common Pleas contends that the story, and the defamation therein, represents a “calculated and perverse political smear” against Elkins, a rising star in the County Democratic Party.

Lawsuit claims KNR firm defrauded clients, took kickbacks—Cleveland.com

AKRON, Ohio – A lawsuit seeking class-action status in Summit County accuses personal-injury law firm Kisling, Nestico and Redick (KNR) of defrauding clients injured in car accidents by receiving kickbacks from chiropractors.

The suit is filed on behalf of former KNR clients Member Williams, Naomi Wright and Matthew Johnson, the complaint in the Summit County Court of Common Pleas. It accuses the law firm—known for its “Hurt in a car…Call KNR!” ads—and owners, Alberto Nestico and Robert Redick, of working with chiropractors who cold-called people “in the wake of painful car accidents when the clients are at their most vulnerable,” offering free transportation to a chiropractic clinic.
