According to a Absolute Write Watercooler forum post by Dave Kuzminski (Editor, Preditors & Editors), he is being sued for libel by two individuals. The first one, Barbara Bauer s a literary agent who alleges he/P&E called her a scam and a scammer. And the second, Victor E. Cretella, III, Esq. is an attorney for PublishAmerica.
According to Mr. Kuzminski, Mr. Cretella alleges he/P&E harmed his reputation by reporting him to the Maryland State Bar Association and his former employer for his actions against a member of Absolute Write.
Predators and Editors is asking for donations to launch a defense against Ms. Bauer. Mr. Kuzminski is unable to make any comments about the second case at this time.
All I can say about this case is ARGH!!!! If websites like Predators and Editors, Writer Beware, and Absolute Write are unable to share true information about those individuals who are out to scam us, then we are sunk.
