Notice to Defame and Libel Veteran Advocate* by Colleen Bushnell

*For those who are not educated in legal recourse, when one gives a notice to cease & desist it comes from a lawyer and includes specific examples of how said person is behaving. Notice that Colleen has provided zero examples of said activity because there weren’t any. This behavior fits in with the modus operandi of someone who would also falsely accuse her ex-husband’s parents of sexually abusing her children in an effort to maintain custody.

Colleen A. Bushnell is an educated, respected professional in the community. She has spent years serving the community in her profession and building a positive reputation. Colleen A. Bushnell has learned that you have engaged in spreading false, destructive, and defamatory rumors about her.

Under Arizona Law, it is unlawful to engage in defamation of another’s character and reputation.  Defamation consists of (1)  a statement that tends to injure reputation; (2) communicated to another; and (3) that the speaker knew or should have known was false.

Your defamatory statements involved Ms. Bushnell’s work as a grass roots, voluntary advocate for legislative reform regarding instances of military sexual trauma in the U.S. military.

Accordingly, we demand that you (A) immediately cease and desist your unlawful defamation of Colleen A. Bushnell and (B) provide prompt written assurance within ten (10) days that you will cease and desist from further defamation of my, Colleen A. Bushnell’s character and reputation.

If you do not comply with this cease and desist demand within this time period, I, Colleen A. Bushnell, am entitled to seek monetary damages and equitable relief for your defamation. In the event you fail to meet this demand, please be advised that I, Colleen A. Bushnell has retained legal counsel, and will pursue all available legal remedies, including seeking monetary damages, injunctive relief, and an order that you pay court costs and attorney’s fees.  Your liability and exposure under such legal action could be considerable.

Before taking these steps, however, I wish to give you one opportunity to discontinue your illegal conduct by complying with this demand within ten (10) days.  Accordingly, please sign and return the attached Defamation Settlement Agreement within ten (10) days to Colleen A. Bushnell (physical address confidential for online commmunication).

I recommend that you consult with an attorney regarding this matter.  If you or your attorney have any questions, please contact me directly.
