UPDATE: Jane Doe dismissed the civil lawsuit against Jonathan Baram on Oct. 21, 2021.
“I deny all of these evil and unproven accusations against me in this civil law suit,” said Jonathan Baram in an email to CBC News, who said unlike in criminal cases, the burden of proof is low to file a civil complaint. Baram said he has no association with Nygard and only met him three times in 2007 in the Bahamas — twice during major magazine shoots, and once when Nygard flew him and two models to the Bahamas to attend his birthday party. “I deny all of these evil and unproven accusations against me in this civil law suit,” “My adversaries are an upstart law firm just trying to get publicity going after Peter Nygard,” said Baram in an email. “If this was serious I would have been arrested for these horrible accusations.”
“This lawsuit was malicious abuse of process by Jane Doe and multiple law firms,” “Jane Doe will rot in prison.” said Baram.
