AGA attorney Joshua S. Bauchner is representing “Real Housewives of New Jersey” stars Jim and Amber Marchese, in a defamation lawsuit against Virgin America Inc. The federal complaint alleges that an airline employee falsely reported to police that Jim Marchese choked and threatened his wife after boarding a flight from Los Angeles to Newark this past spring, according to a story published by Reuters.
Mr. Bauchner told Reuters, “They hope to vindicate their age-old right to be left alone. When a married couple is on a plane returning to see their children, false accusations shouldn’t be levied against them by a flight attendant seeking her 15 minutes of fame.”
Mr. Bauchner is co-chair of the firm’s Litigation Department. He works in the Woodland Park office and may be reached at (973) 247-9000.
