Federal Judge Dismisses Defamation Suit in HIV Fraud Case

A federal judge has dismissed a defamation lawsuit by Cornell Jones, who is accused of misappropriating more than $300,000 from the HIV/AIDS program of Washington, DC, and using the money to open a strip club, The Washington Times reports. U.S. District Judge  Robert L. Wilkins also dismissed a lawsuit by Jones claiming equal rights violations, and he denied a motion by Jones to amend his complaint. Jones’s attorney said that Jones will appeal the ruling on the equal rights claim and will consider refiling the defamation claim in DC Superior Court. Jones is a convicted drug trafficker whose story was dramatized in the television documentary series American Gangster.
