STATE OF MINNESOTA IN COURT OF APPEALS A15-1133

James L. Mandel, Appellant,

vs.

Multiband Corporation, et al., Respondents.

Filed March 28, 2016

Affirmed

Randall, Judge

Hennepin County District Court File No. 27-CV-14-12877

Appellant James L. Mandel seeks reversal of the district court’s grant of summary judgment to respondents Multiband Corporation and Ron B. Hill, CEO of Goodman Networks Incorporated (Goodman). We  conclude that no genuine issues of material fact exist on Mandel’s claims. . The district court did not err in applying the law. Affirmed.

Mandel argues that the district court erred in granting summary judgment to Multiband and Hill on his defamation claim. Defamation plaintiffs in Minnesota must establish four elements: (1) the defamatory statement was communicated to someone other than the plaintiff; (2) the statement is false; (3) the statement tends to harm the plaintiff’s reputation and to lower the plaintiff in the estimation of the community; and (4) the recipient of the false statement reasonably understands it to refer to [the plaintiff].” McKee v. Laurion, 825 N.W.2d 725, 729-30 (Minn. 2013)
