Jennifer Brandt Discusses the Richard Simmons Lawsuit on Fox 29

Tuesday, May 9, 2017

Jennifer Brandt, co-chair of Cozen O'Connor's Family Law practice, was featured on Good Day Philadelphia to discuss the Richard Simmons lawsuit.  "Since early 2014, Mr. Simmons has taken a leave of absence from the media spotlight in order to retreat from his 40-year career in television, fitness and other arenas of entertainment. Starting from around May 2015, Mauro Oliveira, an individual who has blackmailed, extorted and stalked Mr. Simmons for several years with the intention of destroying the career and reputation of Mr. Simmons, contacted several press outlets, including the National Enquirer and Radar, and offered information on Mr. Simmons's disappearance in exchange for a fee," lawyers for Simmons allege in the court filing. The suit also claims that the Enquirer and Radar "knew and acted in reckless disregard for the fact that the information provided by Mr. Oliveira was false and that he was not a credible or reliable source."
