If at first you don’t succeed, try again. That’s clearly the motto of the ever-popular Patrick Reed who has filed an Amended Complaint against Brandel Chamblee, Golf Channel, and a whole host of golf journalists and publishers, alleging ‘conspiracy, defamation, injurious falsehood and tortious interference’.

The complaint was again filed by Larry Klayman, a man responsible for a number of high-profile defamation lawsuits, notably against Hugo Chávez, Bill and Hillary Clinton, Dick Cheney, Barack Obama and Mark Zuckerberg. None have been successful.

He also previously filed a deportation petition against Obama, once writing of the former POTUS, “It is time that we Christians, Jews, people of faith and all true patriots say: enough is enough, and ourselves, in a very real way, “Occupy Washington” to cleanse the nation of the half-Muslim, anti-white, socialist fraud in the White House before the nation goes under for the final count”.


And if that wasn’t enough, in 1998, Klayman even sued his own mother.

So, with all that in mind, Klayman had this to say upon filing the Amended Complaint on behalf of Reed:

“Contrary to the false reporting of the Defendant Gannett, which lied that the lawsuit had been dismissed in its entirety, Chief Judge Timothy Corrigan’s prior order simply required Mr. Reed to rework his initial complaint, mostly over form and then to file this Amended Complaint. Not learning its lesson, Defendant Gannett sought to defame Mr. Reed again by mispresenting Judge Corrigan’s order. This was widely republished by other golf media reporters in bed with the PGA Tour.

“Mr. Reed is a player on the rival LIV Golf League, and many in the golf media have been enlisted by the PGA Tour to harm not just Mr. Reed but also his fellow players at LIV by repeatedly defaming and disparaging them. It was recently disclosed that the PGA Tour had allegedly hired Clout Public Affairs LLC to smear LIV and its players in the media and fund, organize and incite 9/11 families to wage staged protests at LIV events and elsewhere. See LIV Golf Inc. v. Clout Public Affairs, LLC, 1:22-mc-00126, (D.D.C.).”

“The Amended Complaint alleges defamation and tortious interference and seeks over $820,000,000 USD in damages for the severe harm that has been done to Mr. Reed financially and in terms of loss of good will and reputation. This Amended Complaint is embedded below.”

“This case is styled Reed vs. Chamblee, et. al and was filed in the U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Florida, as Case No. 3:22-cv-0159.”

“This Amended Complaint speaks for itself and sets forth an anticompetitive scheme by the PGA Tour, its commissioner Jay Monahan and their agents to defame and destroy LIV and its players, fearing competition which challenges the PGA Tour’s monopoly.”

“Neither Chamblee, Hack, Bacon, Lynch and NBC’s Golf Channel itself, nor any of their alleged co-conspirators, such as the PGA and DP World Tour, are above the law, and they finally will have their day of legal reckoning before ‘Lady Justice.'”
