Automattic Inc. pays upLawyer Peter Kehl prevails against Automattic Inc. / Wordpress
In 2014, experienced lawyer Peter Kehl won a lawsuit against US company Automattic Inc. on behalf of his client TrustedWatch GmbH. Kehl was able to argue all of the claims and demands made TrustedWatch GmbH successfully before the Halle State Court.
The lawyer has now managed to force Automattic Inc. to pay the damages that the court had ordered. Automattic Inc. and its CEO Matt Mullenweg had long ignored the judgement and its consequences, but Kehl took all of the necessary steps on behalf of TrustedWatch GmbH to enforce the claim and collect.
Kehl is unaware of any other case where Automattic Inc. submitted to the verdict of a German court, although the number of cases of libel and slander on WordPress blogs probably number in the thousands.
Currently, Kehl is preparing his next case against Automattic Inc. on behalf of TrustedWatch for TrustedWatch CEO Frank Ammann, lawyer Peter Kehl is “a godsend for anyone who wants to claim damages against American companies like Automattic Inc.”
