RE: Country Style Donuts

It has come to my attention that you have made statements in writing that are untrue, inaccurate and defamatory to me. I also have information that you have broadcast these defamatory remarks over the internet or otherwise published them.

Specifically, you have implied in your remarks that I am not acting in the best interests of my clients, that I am acting in a conflict of interest, that I have breached the Rules of Professional Conduct and that I am or may be giving advice that is not in the best interests of my clients.

These remarks are damaging to my name and reputation as a barrister and solicitor. I am writing to you to demand that you immediately cease making any remarks or utterances, orally or in writing, that are defamatory in nature and which tend to negatively affect my reputation in my profession.

I also demand that you immediately provide me with a list of those persons to whom you have circulated such false and defamatory statements; immediately retract those statements and apologize to me for making such statements and for any harm that such statements may have caused.

I am reserving my right to commence an action against you for damages and an injunction restraining you from conducting yourself in this most reprehensible fashion.

Yours very truly,

LEVITT, BEBER
