Suit Over Lawyers’ Conversation Dismissed

A Philadelphia judge has dismissed a defamation suit against Cozen O’Connor that was based on a phone conversation between lawyers.

The suit by an heir to a building fortune says a lender called loans for a Rolls Royce and a boat after the conversation, the Legal Intelligencer reports. During the call, a lawyer for the lender talked to a Cozen O’Connor attorney about a lawsuit filed by the heir’s mother accusing her son of draining a trust fund.

In dismissing the case, Judge Matthew Carrafiello wrote that the defendants “have only disseminated the truth to those who had a privilege to receive it.”
