HOUSTON – The local company behind the FasciaBlaster claims a Florida woman defamed it on social media.
Recent Harris County District Court records show that Houston-based ADB Interests, LLC filed a lawsuit against Treasure Island, Fla., resident Tilly Begemann Dorenkamp on July 21. Dorenkamp is alleged to have made negative statements about ADB on Facebook.
ADB, which is owned by health and wellness expert Ashley Black, states in the suit that the FasciaBlaster is notable among the products it sells to help in opening the fascia, the thin sheath of fibrous tissue enclosing muscles and organs.
According to the original petition, Dorenkamp volunteered to participate in a research study on how the FasciaBlaster affects the systems of the human body. She purportedly entered into a consent agreement in which she agreed not to divulge about the study on social media without the company’s permission.
Court documents say that the defendant posted about symptoms and side effects she suffered in relation to the study, as well as remarked how the FasciaBlaster can cause bodily harm and body deterioration.
“The defendant’s attempt to spread libelous and defamatory material about ADB caused injury to the reputation and business practices of ADB and Ashley Black, personally,” the suit says.
The complainant consequently seeks $5 million.
Attorneys George A. Kurisky, Jr., Daniel J. Kasprzak, Mark A. Bankston, and Christopher A. Grimm of the law firm Johnson DeLuca Kurisky & Gould, P.C. in Houston are representing the company.
