Case Closed (Barring An Appeal, Which He Should Totally Go For)


Member Jeffrey Lemerond, that SAB Capital guy (previously “that Carlyle guy” and, previous to that, “that JP Morgan guy”), who took issue with the fact that he looked like a pussy in Borat, when he is seen “fleeing in apparent terror” as Sasha Baron Cohen tries to give him hug? A judge has dismissed his defamation lawsuit, which claimed that Lemerond suffered “public ridicule, degradation and humiliation" because of his appearance in the film. That mockery might’ve had something to do with the fact that Lem’ shouts “go away!” several times as Cohen lumbers toward him but, you know, details. Onward.
