Neil – Christian Business Vandalised

Neil* is the owner of a surf shop that raises funds for Christian ministry efforts to help the poor and needy. A journalist wrote an article in the local paper alleging that a t-shirt he was selling displayed homophobic hate-speech. The t-shirt read, “Love is a Choice”. Neil has received many abusive phone calls and his surf shop was repeatedly vandalised due to the article. Eventually a confidential settlement was reached.

*Clients have been de-identified where settlements were confidential, where issues are sensitive, where requested or where the matter is currently before the Courts.
