RIPOFF REPORT VIP ARBITRATION

SUMMARY OF ARBITRATOR’S DECISION

Designguide, LLC, Complainant

v.

Author of Ripoff Report #1043807

________________________________________________________________________

Complainant Designguide, LLC (the “Complainant”) has challenged the truthfulness of certain specific statements (each, a “Statement”) posted by Author Anonymous (the “Author”), shown as “David Whistleblower”, on the Ripoff Report website at www.ripoffreport.com, identified as Ripoff Report No. 1043807 (the “Report”). The Author did not submit a response to the Complainant or any contact information. Therefore, in accordance with the Ripoff Report VIP Arbitration Rules (the “Rules); the Author waived their right to participate in this Arbitration.

In accordance with the Rules, the Arbitrator was asked to decide whether the challenged Statements were an opinion or a fact. If, and only if, the Statement was determined to be a statement of fact, the Arbitrator was asked to further decided if, by a preponderance of the evidence, to determine if the Statement was true or false. If the statement identified by the Complainant is determined to be an opinion, no determination will be made as to that particular Statement because an opinion cannot be determined to be true nor false.

The Arbitrator has determined that all of challenged statements, or those closely related to, were fact. The Arbitrator noted that the Complainant denied all allegations and accusations, stating that the Author was briefly trained to be an Independent Contractor of the Complainant, until he was terminated upon Complainant’s discovery that the Author had previous arrests on various charges. The Complainant explained the business background and practice in detail, which provided numerous pieces of evidence to support the Complainant’s arguments and demonstrate the falsity of the challenge statements by the Complainant.

In this case, the Arbitrator had only the evidence submitted by the Complainant to consider. The evidence submitted included Ripoff Report #1043807, Arbitration Statement, Documents A1-M, Documents 1A-8D, an Author Address Verification document, and 20 Witness Statements. The Arbitrator was also supplied with a Stipulated Order for Permanent Injunction issued by the Honorable Dean Fink of the Superior Court for Maricopa County, Arizona, along with the Author’s consent to use the Injunction in this Arbitration. The Injunction permanently enjoins the Author from publishing false and defamatory statements about the Complainant, and further orders the Author to remove content on any forums.

Each Statement challenged by the Complainant has been considered, together with any Witness Statements and Documents provided by the Complainant for determination of the truth or falsity of the Statement. The Author did not provide a response to the Complaint.

The Arbitrator determined that the statements challenged in the Report were false. Therefore, according to the VIP Arbitration Rules, those statements have been redacted.

Decided August 19, 2013

Sandra J. Franklin, Arbitrator
