Gym Owner Sues For Defamation After Being Publicly Accused Of Rioting At Capitol Without Evidence


A gym owner in the commonwealth of Pennsylvania filed a defamation lawsuit against another person and the website he used to claim the owner participated in the Jan. 6 Capitol breach, according to The Philadelphia Inquirer.

In the suit filed on April 16, Jim Worthington — who owns Newton Athletic Club in Bucks County, Pennsylvania — alleged Gregory Bullough and MoveOn.org made “false, malicious, [and] defamatory” claims against him. Worthington’s suit is in relation to Bullough’s petition started on Jan. 10 that instructs the local community to “end partnerships with Newtown Athletic Club” over the business owner’s supposed role at the Capitol.

“The violent attacks on our nation’s capitol building while the legislators were carrying out their sworn duty was an attack on American Democracy and its Constitution,” the petition reads, which has over 7,200 signatures as of today. “Schools, particularly religious ones should not be associated with it, or with any business that supports or enables it.”
