A Manhattan lawyer says he has lost clients because of online posts claiming he is a cheating “scum” who dumped his girlfriends.
Matthew Couloute Jr. is fighting back with a federal lawsuit filed against two ex-girlfriends, including former roller derby queen Stacey Blitsch, the New York Post reports. Couloute, who is now a married man, claims the posts at liarscheatersrus.com have interfered with prospective business relations.
Couloute is a former Connecticut state prosecutor who has also worked for the National Football League. “You shouldn’t be able to go around ruining people’s lives because you’re a jilted lover,” he told the Post.
