On May 28, 2010 Daniel Parisi,(Left) owner/operator of Whitehouse.com, Whitehousesex.com, Whitehouse Networks, and Whitehouse Communications filed a $30 Million Defamation suit against Lawrence W. Sinclair (aka Larry Sinclair); Barnes & Noble, Inc.; Barnesandnoble.com LLC; Books-A-Million; Amazon.com; Jeffrey Rense; and Sinclair Publishing in the United States District Court for the District of Columbia. Parisi by and through Richard J. Oparil, partner at DC lobbying firm Patton Boggs LLP claimed he was defamed by the book Barack Obama & Larry Sinclair: Cocaine, Sex, Lies & Murder?
Included in Parisi’s claims are that he is not a “pornographer, is not an Internet porn merchant, and that Whitehouse.com was not an Internet porn site in 2008-09.” Parisi also alleges he was defamed by Sinclair’s reporting of information received accusing Parisi of having arranged a rigged polygraphed examination administered by Edward Ira Gelb (right) of Los Angeles, CA.
On March 30, 2011 the Honorable Judge Richard J. Leon (Left) granted Barnes & Noble, Books-A-Million and Amazon.com’s Motions to Dismiss and for Summary Judgment. In June 2011 Parisi himself moved to withdraw/dismiss his claims against Books-A-Million and Barnes & Noble while attempting to reverse the dismissal of Amazon.com. Parisi after filing multiple sworn affidavits claiming to be a resident of New Jersey and then Washington, DC attempted in June 2011 to claim he was actually a citizen of Pennsylvania in an attempt to have a favorable PA law applied to the case. Judge Leon however denied Parisi’s motions, Parisi has through Richard Oparil filed an appeal in the United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit in an attempt to reverse the District Courts dismissal of Amazon.com from the case.
On August 8, 2011 Parisi through counsel Richard J. Oparil (right) filed a Notice of Supplemental Evidence in an attempt to enter a video recorded by Edward Gelb without permission from Larry along with sworn affidavits from a Maine Private Investigator (who has himself been found to have committed perjury) and a woman who was the account owner of Maine telephone numbers which Larry had received calls from in February 2008. First Parisi had attempted to argue that Ms. Byrnes was somehow a family member of Larry’s and then in his August 8, 2011 notice argued Ms. Byrnes had never spoken with nor knew Larry Sinclair (which by the way Larry had in his on Motion to Dismiss made it clear he did not know and had not ever spoken with Tammy Byrnes).
When Parisi filed the video on August 8, 2011 Parisi claimed it was “new evidence” which was only just discovered the week prior to filing, yet after the Court ordered the Supplemental Evidence stricken from the record Parisi’s counsel attempted to claim Parisi owned the copyright to said video.
In doing so Richard Oparil sent a copy of a July 27, 2011 sworn affidavit of Robert Braddock Jr. (Left) (Braddock was Parisi employee) claiming he worked for Whitehouse.com from Jan 2008 thru May 2008 as a Videographer or Reporter however Braddock was much more than a videographer/reporter and was employed by Whitehouse Communications for twice as long as Braddock swore to under penalty of perjury
On August 24, 2011 the Honorable Richard J. Leon did grant Motion to Dismiss filed by counsel for Jeffrey Rense.
Upon detailed review of the unauthorized video made by Edward Ira Gelb of Larry’s polygraph exam shows Parisi representative Robert Braddock Jr. admitting to Gelb that Braddock & Parisi had planned from the beginning to LIE to Larry about the results of the polygraph. In addition the video shows Gelb acknowledging Larry to be telling the truth while at the time showing his bias calling Larry “nuts, crazy etc…”
On October 3, 2011 counsel for Jeffrey Rense moved to have the dismissal of Jeffrey Rense on August 24, 2011 Certified as a final Judgment. On October 28, 2011 the Honorable Richard J. Leon granted Rense Motion for Certification and the Clerk of the US District Court entered “Judgment in a Civil Action” dismissing all claims as to Jeffrey Rense on October 28, 2011.
