Mark Messerschmidt Was Successful In Removing False Contentions From a Website
Mark Messerschmidt was successful in convincing a website to remove false allegations about a healthcare professional and that provider’s care and treatment. Originally, the website falsely claimed this provider’s involvement was substandard according to publicly available information. Mr. Messerschmidt, however, argued that the same public information would directly contradict the publisher’s contentions and demonstrated how the claims against that provider were false in fact. Accordingly, Mr. Messerschmidt’s argument left the publisher without a reasonable option but to remove the false information and print a correction and retraction.
