Bachelor contestant, James McCoy Taylor, files defamation lawsuit

As Americans, we have the right to freedom of speech and expression. It’s a fundamental right. However, in many cases, a person’s words can be used against them to damage their livelihood, and that is the case with a former The Bachelorette contestant.

The defamation of James McCoy Taylor

The current facts are these. James McCoy Taylor, a cast member from JoJo Fletcher’s season, expressed support on Twitter for former President Trump and his rally leading up to January 6. As we all know now that rally became a deadly riot and many involved face significant legal repercussions.

However, it is popularly alleged that Mr. Taylor took part in that riot, an allegation that he disputes vigorously. The sad fact is that a salacious – and provably false – allegation can cause much damage even if the truth comes out soon after. In Mr. Taylor’s case, aside from his support of the former president, there is no proof of his participation in the riot.

Mr. Taylor’s music career and public image have taken considerable damage from this allegation.

The best defense is a good offense

Erica Rose, herself a former contestant on The Bachelor, Charles Sanders and New York attorney Stephanie Ovadia have taken on Mr. Taylor’s case as his representation. The knowledgeable team at [nap_names id="FIRM-NAME-1"] and Law Office of Stephanie G. Ovadia, have insight into the personal and public pressures that Mr. Taylor is under and understand the difficult razor’s edge that public professionals have to walk. We will aggressively protect Mr. Taylor's rights and work to hold the negligent parties accountable.

Our lawyers stand ready to fight to protect our client's rights and ensure that this time, the truth will overshadow the irresponsible lies.
