Keith Bremer Wins Defamation Suit For Frank Ocean

Congratulations to Keith G. Bremer and Benjamin L. Price for getting a Defense Verdict on a 14.5 million dollar libel demand against artist Frank Ocean.

As reported by TMZ, BillBoard, and others, Bremer Whyte’s team beat a 14.5 million libel against Frank Ocean’s estranged father, when a Federal District Court ruled that Mr. Ocean’s father hadn’t shown that his son defamed him with a 2016 Tumblr post that recounted him calling a transgender waitress an anti-gay slur.

“It was a sad case but, we are glad that it ended in Frank’s favor and that it is over” – Keith Bremer

Keith Bremer and Benjamin Price from our Newport Beach office represented Frank Ocean in this case. The judge concluded that plaintiff did not meet the burden of proof and ruled in favor of Frank Ocean.
