    OffshoreAlert obtained the document from federal court in Detroit and published it on February 13th, 2012, i.e. more than six years ago. It was a publicly-available document that we obtained legally via the U.S. federal court system. The document was authored and filed by the U.S. Government. We cannot be held liable for the publication of a public document authored by a third-party. The mere notion is ridiculous, as is your claim that failure to remove the document is evidence of “actual malice”. This document will not be removed. Feel free to follow through on your threat to sue. I look forward to not only defeating your client but also reporting about the case to our worldwide readership. The fact that you and your client thinks that trying to bully OffshoreAlert is an effective course of action indicates to me that neither of you has done any credible research on us and how we conduct our affairs.

    Cayman Court Secrecy: A Huge Red Flag for Foreign Investors & Clients
    David Marchant
    As any fule kno, the biggest enemy of fraud, corruption, money laundering, and other forms of financial crime is transparency, while their best friend is secrecy. That's why the unprecedented mass sealing of cases that's taking place at the Financial Services Division of the Grand Court of the Cayman Islands is repugnant to anyone with a genuine concern for financial crime.
