Jeweler Files Defamation Lawsuit Against WBRE

A jeweler in Monroe County, Penn. has filed a defamation lawsuit in federal court against WBRE, the NBC affiliate in Wilkes-Barre. The Citizens’ Voice has details:

Timothy J. Shadle, owner of All-American Gold and Silver Exchange in Bartonsville, claimed in the federal suit that the station falsely portrayed him as a “scam artist” following his arrest on charges relating to his failure to renew his license to sell precious metals.

Shadle’s filing in county court named the station, parent company Nexstar Broadcasting Group, reporter Laurie Monteforte, news director Jim DePury, and anchors Candice Kelly and Drew Speier as defendants but did not include a complaint with details of his allegations.
