Dr Phil’s Response to Kalpoe Defamation Law Suit … Character, what Character?


Dr Phil responds to the Kalpoe’s defamation law suit … Read the legal response HERE.

The show’s attorney says widespread news reports of the brothers’ arrest “serves to mitigate any damages allegedly suffered by them and bars or reduces their right to recover any damages.”

Just a hint to AP and the media. Please stop referring to the Kalpoe’s as former suspects. They are presently the primary suspects along with Joran Van der Sloot in the disappearance of Natalee Holloway.

With all the lies, deceit and cover up by the Kalpoe’s it makes one ask the question … in order for some one to sue for defamation of character, wouldn’t one first have to have character?

      Dr. Phil comes out swinging! Let the games begin!

      I wrote to AP weeks ago about that factual error … calling the Kalpoes “former” suspects, when even the Aruba court ruled that they were still regarded as suspects.

      Nary a word back, not even an acknowledgement.

      Guess the importance of “getting it right” is relative these days. Not like it used to be, and surely not like financial journalism, which I tend to think is the only part of the profession that still has some degree of rectitude about it. Even that’s up for doubt.

      I am so glad you all caught the FORMER in the language.

      My opinion is not to allow he mainstream media to ever forget what has and is happenning in the cesspool called aruba

    5. John Staton on February 2nd, 2007 9:10 am

      Don’t worry, when they are no longer suspects due to the cover up and so called investigation ends, the real investigation and acts of justice will begin.

      #5 welcome back John, where have you been…
      I wish I could be in the court room when the two idiots go to sue Dr Phil.that should be great.

      Suing for defamation of character???
      Why zero in on Dr. Phil …. Dr. Phil never implied anything publicly that differed from the official/public statements that came straight from the mouths of the “powers that be” that were involved in the Aruban investigation regarding the Natalee Holloway case.

      October 12, 2005
      ABRAMS: We have heard from official statements from the authorities in Aruba that Joran Van Der Sloot made inconsistent statements. True?
      DOMPIG: That is correct.
      ABRAMS: What were they inconsistent about.
      DOMPIG: Well, it would take me, I think, a little over two days to go over all the inconsistencies. None of the stories match up, let me put it that way. So when it comes to believing this individual, we know in which category to place him.
      November 2, 2005
      COSBY: Do you believe, Chief-you said to me even before this interview that you believe the boys are guilty as hell. Do you believe they’re involved in her disappearance?
      DOMPIG: Yes.
      November 8, 2005
      COSBY: You know, I talked to the deputy chief of police, Dompig, about this case, and he said some interesting things. I want to share a little comment. This is what he had to say about the three boys in the case, Senator.
      “I still believe that these boys have been lying, they’re still lying, and everybody knows that by now. So there’s no doubt in my mind that they know something, they’re guilty of something,” said Aruban Police Chief Gerold Dompig.
      FOX NEWS
      June 12, 2005
      Deputy Police Commissioner, Gerold Dompig, told The Associated Press that one of three young men arrested in the case admitted “something bad happened” to Holloway and was leading police to the scene
      August 26, 2005
      After being detained and then released last month in Natalee Holloway’s disappearance, two brothers were arrested again Friday in Aruba on suspicion they acted “together with other people” in raping and killing the Alabama teen, the PROSCUTOR’S OFFICE said.
      Without elaborating on the evidence, the office said in a statement that “New facts and circumstances” led them to re-arrest Satish Kalpoe, 18 and brother Deepak, 21.
      Caribbean Voice
      January 18, 2006
      Aruba believes it is most important to get a hold of her mental state and most importantly, Natalee’s physical state at the time of disappearance. “Two of the boys said they had consensual sex with her. Whether consensual or not, depends on her ability to be conscious and make a choice,” said COHEN.

    9. Miss-Underestimated on February 2nd, 2007 2:49 pm

      Hey Janet do you think that the change of heart that Dompig had regarding Natalee may have something to do with his son, Michael?

      Mr. Dompig, what did Michael tell you?

    10. minnesota dad on February 2nd, 2007 3:56 pm

      20 Affirmative defenses….not bad.

      The first defense, however, is the clincher. How can they claim Phil defamed/libeled when so many others must have defamed libeled before him.

      Though Phil has deep pockets and could settle and move on, this is positive.

      It was a bogus lawsuit and a gamble by the Kalpoes in order to extort a settlement out of Phil. The fact that it was filed just after they had to stay as suspects tells me one thing – this was a Hail Mary pass taken with the hope of a settlement. A settlement would have casted doubt on their complete involvement with the crime and would have been used by AHATA, Yoyo, Ramm, and others as another argument that their boys are innocent of their crimes. Thus also aiding ALE and the judiciary on May 31st 2007 when they try to wash their hands of this case.

      The Hail Mary failed….Phil responded. This case is dead. Kalpoes/ALE/Aruban Judiciary were hoping for a quiet settlement (who cares what the $$$ amount was…just the opportunity to say “they won”). You will not see it go any further than this. The Kalpoe attorneys need to take the next step….and that step will be one of withdrawing this lawsuit.

      No depositions, no discovery taken…..unfortunately. md

    11. yoyo muffintop on February 2nd, 2007 9:39 pm

      mn dad – I’ll speak in the first person here. Yoyo doesn’t care about 2K’s suit. Yoyo believes both the plantiffs’ civil suit and the defendant’s response are very well written. Yoyo believes it could go either way.

      bet dr phil loses
      it will be proven the tapes edited for eddect
      ie faked

    13. Kat_Gram on February 3rd, 2007 7:34 am

      The respone is asking for a dismissal and COSTS.
      This will also be a factor for the Kalpoes should they wish to continue with this.

    14. Big Lou on February 3rd, 2007 5:12 pm

      I don’t think Dr. Phil did anything to the tape. He played the tape Jamie Skeeters gave to him.

    15. Mortella on February 3rd, 2007 6:22 pm

      #12, not a chance! These two slimeballs had no character to defame! Satish’s career in high school is just as guaranteed as ever and Deepak seems to be unemployed right now due to visa problems.

      Only one tiny segment of that tape has been made much of but the rest of it is in full keeping with Deepak’s vilifying his victim. We know that trick here but how good of him to provide ample supporting evidence that no one needed to change anything. Saying he would tell if he knew where the BODY was buried, all those things like that add up to the total meaning of what he was saying.

      Yes, I do hope they understand what COSTS are in a case like this for that would entail the price of Dr. Phil’s lawyers when they lose. I doubt it has entered their pointy heads they could end up paying for all of this. And too late now! This is money collected by the courts that they will be paying likely for the rest of their miserable lives because of having such gall and inflated egos that they think they can actually fool a judge and jury.

      I will take your bet for you are a sure to lose this. A snowball has a better chance in hades than these two of winning anything but the right to pay for this fiasco they have been talked into starting. They will rue the day they ever even attempted such a farce.

    16. LilPuma on February 3rd, 2007 11:14 pm

      I don’t believe Dr. Phil or Jamie Skeeters misrepresented the words of Deepak Kalpoe on that recording. That’s why the 53 page Complaint leaves plenty of room for claims of damages even if it’s proven that Deepak Kalpoe said “She did. You’d be surprised how simple it was that night.” I hope this goes to trial.

    17. mayan_moons on February 4th, 2007 2:19 am

      Right On Mortella!!

      I’ve been thinking the exact same thing, these idiots don’t realize that THEY WILL BE PAYING THOSE COSTS!

      You beat me to it Mortella but was typing out how Depsac told Jamie that if he knew where her body was HE WOULD TELL THEM!

    18. mayan_moons on February 4th, 2007 2:30 am

      Court Costs Can Be A Killer!

    19. mayan_moons on February 4th, 2007 2:54 am

      Oh yeah just so you Kalpukes know, court costs are separate from lawyers fee’s. hahaha morons!~

    20. Carpe Noctem on February 4th, 2007 8:40 pm

      The Kalpoes are going to be slaughtered like the
      worthless, Natalee Holloway killing pieces of sh
      that they are. I hope those walking human trash bins remember their trip of coming to America for a
      lifetime! I am pretty sure it’ll be an unpleasant
      experience. -J4N

    21. minnesota dad on February 4th, 2007 10:31 pm


      There will be no court costs awarded to Phil.

      Court costs are rarely awarded in USA courts. It is simple, if Judges would rule that court costs must be paid, people/attorneys would not file frivolous suits and members of the lawyers bar would not be able to make any money.

      Placing ‘court costs’ into the responses is standard and can make clients happy that the frivolous plaintiff is gonna get it from the judge….the reality is this – IT DOESN’T HAPPEN!

      Stick a fork in this case. It will be withdrawn shortly. md

    22. Richard on February 5th, 2007 5:16 am

      I think it was said that Tuesday is the date. Let’s keep our fingers crossed … too bad we don’t have the proverbial fly on the wall in the Kalpoe household to let us know what’s going on.

      why doesn’t dr phil and company counter sue for defamation of character of his show and possible loss of revenue.after all this does put that show in a bad light.I guess only people from aruba are allowed to sue or make confessions and write books about their crimes with total impunity.which by the way makes me wonder how joran vandersloot can come on national t.v and confess his crime and yet the holloway family can’t sue him?this isn’t about money this is about getting them in a court of law and getting to the bottom of this matter.
