Orange County Trial Attorney Gregory G. Brown Obtains $523,250 Jury Verdict for Real Housewives of Orange County Star Gretchen Rossi in Stalking and Assault Trial

Irvine, CA (PRWEB) November 20, 2012

On November 15, 2012, an Orange County jury awarded Real Housewives of Orange County reality TV star Gretchen Rossi $ 500,000 in compensatory and $ 23,250 in punitive damages against Jay Photoglou, according to the jury verdict. Photoglou was found liable for Stalking, Assault, Intentional Infliction of Emotional Distress, Conversion, Intentional Interference with Contract, and Intentional Interference Prospective Economic Advantage. The claims included Photoglous threats to kill Rossi, multiple assaults, submitting nude photos to Internet sites, harassment, and other wrongful conduct, based on the evidence presented at trial.

Photoglou also had a lawsuit against Rossi for libel, slander, and false light, according to his First Amended Complaint, seeking $ 1,000,000 in damages. The jury found against Photoglou on all of his defamation claims against Rossi, as established by the jury verdict.

Photoglou’s suit was filed in January 2010. Rossi’s was filed in June of 2010. According to court documents, the two cases were consolidated and trial began on October 22, 2012 in Orange County Superior Court case numbers 30-2010-00365771 and 30-2010-00393514.

The History

The issues began when Photoglou announced to the world on February 10, 2009 that he was Rossis real boyfriend and that her engagement to Jeffrey Beitzel was staged for the show, according to the evidence presented at trial. Within hours, Photoglou had gone to the National Enquirer, who ran his story, as also demonstrated by the evidence at trial. Rossi’s trial testimony recounted three separate death threats by Photoglou on November 18, 2008, February 18, 2009 and March 4, 2009. Rossi obtained a Temporary Restraining Order against Photoglou on March 5, 2009, according to court documents.

The Trial

The trial testimony revealed multiple death threats by Photoglou, stalking, online harassment, 911 calls, claims of suicide attempts, and posting of nude photos of Rossi. The parties filed numerous police reports, according to the evidence at trial. There were multiple claims by Photoglou that Rossi and Slade Smiley had assaulted him. The documentary evidence in trial indicated that Photoglou had also enlisted the help of many other associates and bloggers to virtually track Rossis every move to harass her and interfere with her career.

The trial evidence included 3 prior restraining orders against Mr. Photoglou, showing a 22-year pattern of harassing, stalking, and threatening women he knew, according to court documents.

In finding against Photoglou, the jury did not believe there was the relationship Photoglou claimed. During trial, he was repeatedly referred to as “obsessed” with Rossi, according to the trial transcripts. Attorney Gregory G. Brown said, “Photoglou testified in his deposition that he had been engaged to Rossi.” At times during the trial, Photoglou began to cry during his testimony.

According to the trial transcript, the second question asked of Photoglou on cross-examination was:


Sarasota County Commission Recognizes Sweet-Sparkman Architects and Ringling College Students for ‘ORIGINS’ Exhibit at 2012 Architecture Biennale in Venice, Italy

Sarasota, FL (PRWEB) September 25, 2012

Sarasota County Commission today recognized Sweet-Sparkman architects and Ringling College of Art and Design students for the ‘ORIGINS’ exhibit at 2012 Architecture Biennale in Venice, Italy.

The pure quartz sands of Siesta Key Beach were on display last month at the 13th International Architecture Exhibition in Venice, Italy, in an exhibit created by local architects Jerry Sparkman and Todd M. Sweet along with students, staff and alumni from the Ringling College of Art and Design. Sparkman and the team from Ringling were honored today with a certificate of recognition by the Sarasota County Commission at the start of the Sept. 25 meeting.

The conceptual exhibit, called Origins, features a sand waterfall that flows from the ceiling through a hand-cast glass vitrine in front of a 10 x 10 glass wall. The architects from the firm of Sweet Sparkman were invited to participate in the exhibition by Rene Reitmeyer, a Dutch artist and the curator for the exhibition. Reitmeyer was intrigued by Sparkmans Casey Key beach house design, which prompted him to offer the architect an invitation to present a conceptual proposal to the exhibitions selection committee in January.

Ringling College student team members honored today include Business of Art & Design 2012 graduate Mari Garman and 2012-2013 Trustee Scholar Agneta Ramoskaite; Fine Arts seniors Diana Lueken and Devon Keene; 2012-2013 Trustee Scholar for Student Life and Interior Design senior Dehne Sibbernsen; Motion Design sophomore Jason Beale and Photography & Digital Imaging sophomore Jackson Petty.

Siesta Keys sand is made of 99.9% pure quartz. It is one of the reasons Siesta Key Beach was named the 2011 Best Beach in America by Dr. Stephen Leatherman, also known as Dr. Beach.

The exhibit received support from the Sarasota County Commission, Sarasota County Parks and Recreation, the Gulf Coast Community Foundation and Visit Sarasota County.

The ORIGINS exhibition is open to the public at the BIENNALE ARCHITETTURA 2012 until November 25, 2012 at the Palazzo Bembo, located at 4793 Riva del Carbon, 30124 Venice, Italy. More than 40,000 visitors are expected to tour the ORIGINS exhibit during its run.
