In a lawsuit filed today in the U.S. District Court in New Jersey, Binance said the article published by Forbes was defamatory and caused millions of dollars in damage.

While there are already questions about this case, there is no longer any doubt about one thing: the Binance platform is getting serious.

Binance has hired Charles Harder, a lawyer known to represent Hulk Hogan (Terry Jean Bollea), in the Joker Media case. He was awarded $ 115 million in damages and an additional $ 25 million in compensation for his client in 2016 after the defendants posted excerpts from sex videos on their website.

Shortly thereafter, chasing Harder directly leads to the downfall of Joker Media. Peter Thiel, billionaire founder of Palantir and co-founder of PayPal, helped fund lawsuits after Gawker published a headline that mentioned Thiel’s sexual orientation.

Harder also made headlines recently when he represented Donald Trump in another sexual allegation case against US President Stormy Daniels (real name Stephanie Clifford). In this case, Harder was on the side of the winner of the anti-SLAP movement. A public engagement strategic lawsuit is defined as a nuisance to dissuade critics from publishing material, burdening them with significant legal costs, and becoming a favored tactic for companies and entrenched individuals, including politicians.

Harder has also appeared to other members of the Trump family, including Melania Trump. In a lawsuit against Britain’s Daily Mail newspaper, Harder managed to raise $ 2.9 million and apologize after a tabloid newspaper indicated that Trump had “provided services beyond just modeling” earlier in his life. He also represented Jared Kushner, the president’s son-in-law, in the case against Vanity Fair.

Not always more difficult. He did not file a threat lawsuit against the New York Times on behalf of Harvey Weinstein and subsequently withdrew his claim.

Harder acts as a defender (only once) in this case, and thus is not expected to represent Binance in other lawsuits.
