Resolute Forest Products Files Racketeering Suit Against Greenpeace in U.S. Federal Court
The complaint included federal racketeering claims and racketeering, trademark, defamation and tortious interference claims under Georgia law.
These alleged claims arise from, among other things, Greenpeace’s self-described “Resolute: Forest Destroyer” campaign falsely accusing Resolute of, among other things: “destroying endangered forests,” and “operating and sourcing wood . . . in violation of law”; ( causing the “destruction of endangered species” and “critical caribou habitat” and risking a “Caribou Herd Death Spiral,”.
The complaint describes in detail the falsity of these and other malicious and defamatory accusations.
