Miami, Florida, (PRWEB)—May 20, 2020
Award winning and highly renowned, board certified Miami based plastic surgeon, Dr. Adam J. Rubinstein, M.D. FACS has filed a multimillion dollar lawsuit against Dr. Simon Ourian M.D. and Epione Medical Corporation in Beverly Hills. The suit alleges multiple charges against Dr. Simon Ourian including among them Defamation and Slander, Libel, and Fraud. The case is filed in US District Court for the Southern District of Florida (case #1:2020cv21948) and is being handled by The Ferrarro Law Firm (“Ferraro Law”) in Miami, Florida with the legal team of James L. Ferraro, Esq and Janpaul Portal Esq.
The lawsuit alleges that Dr. Ourian orchestrated a retaliatory and fraudulent scheme to maliciously defame and slander Dr. Rubinstein’s personal and professional character by creating hundreds of false and misleading posts about Dr. Rubinstein. This was allegedly accomplished via fictitious patient reviews from multiple websites, including, but not limited to, Google, RateMDs, Vitals, Ripoff Report, Yelp, and similar online outlets. The fake reviews are alleged to be in retaliation for videos made about Dr. Ourian by Dr. Rubinstein.
The complaint alleges the fake negative reviews were created and posted on multiple websites and social media platforms by Dr. Ourian, directly and/or through his agents. The suit describes the alleged hiring of foreign operatives that were directed and/or acted on behalf of Dr. Ourian. In some instances, the suit claims, Dr. Ourian allegedly directed his operatives to post fake positive reviews about himself at or about the same time they were directed to post fake negative reviews about Dr. Rubinstein on the same internet sites.
Dr. Rubinstein, a committed advocate for patients safety, truth and transparency in the aesthetics industry, frequently posts about doctors that are not revealing the full truth about themselves. His series of videos entitled, “Exposed” is dedicated to shining light on misleading or otherwise deceptive practices. He has also worked with local and national media to expose the truth about disingenuous doctors.
“I am dedicated to sharing the truth with the public no matter how shocking it may be,” says Dr Adam J Rubinstein. “Sometimes the truth is not pleasant or complimentary. It is still, however, the truth. If I find myself being victimized for doing the right thing for patients, I have to defend myself to the fullest extent of the law.”
The Ferraro Law Firm on behalf of Dr Rubinstein brings this action to recover damages he has incurred or will incur as a result of the alleged Dr Ourian tortious conduct and as well as investigating, reporting and removing these fake posts from multiple websites, including, but not limited to, Google, RateMDs, Vitals, Ripoff Report, Yelp, and similar social media places.
“In cases of online defamation and, unfortunately, many people do not realize the pervasive damage that is being done to people’s reputations online.” says James L. Ferraro Esq. “This is serious business.”
