Quackpot Polevoy Sued for Libel in Canada...
Opinion by Consumer Advocate Tim Bolen
Friday, October 28th, 2005
When the New York ad agency, the one the runs the "quackbuster" operation against innovation in health care in North America opened its email program last month, it was probably chagrined to find that one more self-styled "quackbuster" was being sued for what many feel they do best - libel health care providers.
This photo says it all... Terry Polevoy MD (left) being confronted by health humanitarian and world renowned author Leonard Horowitz DDS, PhD (right).
Terry Polevoy, a former pediatrician now turned "pimple doctor," has been sued in a case in Canada demanding:
1. General damages in the amount of $1,000,000.00; Aggravated, exemplary and punitive damages in the amount of $5,000,000.00; Special and or pecuniary damages in the amount of $10,000,000.00; An interim and permanent injunction restraining the Defendants, and others having notice of any Order this Court may issue, from republishing the defamatory statements complained of in this proceeding, as well as any similar statements; An order to direct all defendants to post, equal in time, size and prominence, a retraction of the defamatory, inaccurate and malicious publication on a first approved basis by the plaintiff; An order to all parties who received the original publications to confirm the distribution of the retraction; Pre-judgement and post-judgement interest pursuant to the provisions of the Courts of Justice Act, R.S.O. 1990, c. c-43; Its costs of this action on a substantial indemnity basis together with applicable Goods and Services Tax;
Polevoy, in my opinion, sees himself as the "heir apparent" to aging, and courtroom humiliated, top quackbuster Stephen Barrett, but there are questions about who Polevoy really is.
Who is this guy?
Polevoy is an anomaly in the "quackbuster" operation. Apparently banned from a leadership role in the North American conspiracy, Polevoy is conspicuously absent from the NCAHF's Board of Directors, or Advisors, and is missing from the any Boards at quackwatch.com. The American Council on Science and Health (ACSH) has no listing for him. It's obvious he's been rejected from the main group - probably because of his obsessive behavior.
Speaking of "obsessive behavior," I found ninety-eight (98) references to him in the Waterloo "The Record," his local newspaper. Most of those references are comments, by local citizens, made about Polevoy's bizarre behavior. It is apparent that Polevoy is at odds with a major segment of his home town.
I think, though, that this strike, in Canada, will be the beginning of Polevoy's demise. He didn't have an attorney represent him in his statement of defense in this case - he wrote the strangely worded answer himself.
