Kochański Zięba Rapala & Partners represents a Newsweek journalist
Kochański Zięba Rapala & Partners is representing the Newsweek journalist, Cezary Łazarewicz in a case against Stowarzyszenie Dziennikarzy Polskich (Association of Polish Journalists).

Newsweek's journalist Mr. Cezary Łazarewicz, is suing the Association of Polish Journalists for nominating him the “Hyena of the Year” for unflattering articles about the father of Lech Kaczyński (former President of The Republic of Poland) and Jaroslaw Kaczyński. The journalist claims that the Association of Polish Journalists is being untruthful in its justification of the nomination accusing Łazarewicz of using anonymous sources and spreading rumors in a written form. The Newsweek journalist demands that the Association of Polish Journalists publish an apology on its website, as well as in reputable newspapers i.e. in Gazeta Wyborcza and Rzeczpospolita, and pay PLN 20 000 to the benefit of the Home Hospice of the Marian Fathers (Hospicjum Domowe Zgromadzenia Księży Marianów).

Tobiasz Szychowski – Attorney at law, Partner, Head of Litigation and ADR Department at Kochański Zięba Rapala and Partners is responsible for the case.
