Judge narrows Bacon-Nygård defamation case tied to Bahamas fire

A New York judge has narrowed the scope of a $100 million defamation lawsuit filed by billionaire hedge fund manager Louis Bacon against Canadian fashion designer Peter Nygård, part of a bitter dispute over neighboring properties they own in the Bahamas. In a decision made public on Friday, Justice Cynthia Kern in State Supreme Court in Manhattan dismissed 105 of the 135 allegedly defamatory statements that formed the basis for Bacon’s $100 million lawsuit in January, accusing Nygård of orchestrating an “obsessive” smear campaign. Bacon, the founder of Moore Capital Management, can continue to pursue the remaining defamation claims.
