Christy Eikhoff, Kristi Ramsay, and Kelley Barnaby will speak about their representation of Christopher Steele and his firm, Orbis Business Intelligence, on the Monthly Media Law Meeting sponsored by the D.C. Bar Arts, Entertainment, Media and Sports Law Community.

In Fridman v. Orbis Bus. Intelligence Ltd., certain owners of a Russian business conglomerate sued Christopher Steele and his firm Orbis Business Intelligence Limited, alleging that they were defamed in one of the reports from the infamous Steele Dossier. On June 18, 2020, the D.C. Court of Appeals affirmed the dismissal of the case pursuant to the District of Columbia Anti-SLAPP Act, holding that the Anti-SLAPP Act applied, and that Plaintiffs-Appellants were public figures and had failed to proffer evidence capable of showing that the Defendants-Appellees had acted with actual malice.
