#WONTBESILENCED: AXS LAW obtains Florida’s first ever injunction against future speech

A well-known Miami restaurant was wrongfully attacked by a prominent social media influencer and reality TV star who began conducting a vicious campaign of defamation, accusing the Company of engaging in sex trafficking and harboring pedophiles among other crimes. The attack not only planned to harm the business reputation but also resulted in threats of physical violence and even death threats against them.
AXX LAW sued immediately, securing an emergency hearing, and obtaining an order requiring the defendant to never again post the defamatory statements. This injunction against future speech is extremely rare in the United States and the first in record in Florida and was possible only because AXS LAW presented the defamation claims in conjunction with other tort claims and moved extremely quickly to apply immense pressure on the Defendant, whose last post on the subject had been: “#wontbesilenced.”.
