A statement from the defendants of author Robert Akard vs. AR Shaw and others.
We are aware that comments have been made on various social media posts about a lawsuit filed by Bobby Akard. We believe that Robert B. Akard’s (Akart) lawsuit is without merit, and that the litigation process will expose it as such. We are fully defending the lawsuit and are confident any claims against us will be dismissed. We are also vigorously pursuing a counterclaim against Akard for abuse of process. Due to the nature of litigation and out of respect for the process, this will likely be our only public comment about the lawsuit.
