According to America's Frontline Doctors (AFLDS), Joey Gilbert, a Nevada attorney with no health care experience, claimed that he was serving as the "Chief Strategy Officer" of AFLDS. He attempt to replace Dr. Simone Gold, the group's founder, with himself, while Dr. Gold was incarcerated following her medical freedom speech in the Capitol. Gilbert brought a "wildly accusatory" lawsuit against Dr. Gold that was dismissed. AFLDS says that Gilbert's attempt at a hostile takeover threatens the reputation and survival of AFLDS going forward and Dr. Gold has filed a counter-lawsuit against Gilbert.
Court Grants Dr. Gold's Motion to Dismiss of Defamatory Lawsuit, Citing Failure to Meet Burden of Proof
FORT MYERS, Fla. – A Federal Judge issued a 13-page ruling today, granting Dr. Simone Gold's motion to dismiss a wildly accusatory lawsuit brought by rogue attorney and now-disgraced former America's Frontline Doctors (AFLDS) director Joseph "Joey" Gilbert. The lawsuit failed on several jurisdictional points, with the judge declaring "Plaintiffs failed to provide enough information" to reach their burden of proof in meeting the required elements. Today's dismissal in Federal Court is a substantial step in exposing Gilbert's fraud and exonerating Gold's continued sacrificial efforts in leading AFLDS to champion medical freedom and civil liberties.
