James C. Couri’s Defamatory Websites and

In 2007, I successfully represented George M. Pavia in the ejectment of Couri from one of the four apartments within Pavia's 73rd Street and Fifth Avenue townhouse. A unanimous jury found Couri to be a legal nuisance for sending over 200 faxes to Mr. Pavia’s office falsely accusing him of immoral and unethical behavior, sending about 40-50 similar types of faxes directed at a tenant who lived above Couri to the tenant’s various workplaces, and sent unfounded complaints and disparaging letters to professional organizations about Mr. Pavia and various attorneys involved in the litigation.

In the months that followed Couri’s ejectment, I successfully recovered from Couri approximately $165,000. Shortly thereafter Couri formed and to continue his harassment of Mr. Pavia, his wife, children, presiding Judge Joan A. Madden, and me, among others.

In response, I created this public service blog, to curtail Couri’s ability to damage, intimidate and fleece his victims. As a result of this blog, I received calls from people who said they were current victims of Couri’s harassment, intimidation, and false blog posts. In addition, counsel defending U.C.L.A. Medical Center against Couri's medical malpractice claims used the court records posted to my blog to force Couri to withdraw his meritless medical malpractice lawsuit. No doubt, Couri’s victims and U.C.L.A. Medical Center were satisfied to learn Couri is a thrice-convicted felon (federal bank fraud and two counts of federal securities fraud), a prolific pro se litigant, a court-declared vexatious litigant in both New York and California, and the debtor of a fraud judgment of more than $15 million (for the benefit of Dr. John Siebert). 

Couri has never been encumbered by the truth. Indeed, it is Couri’s stock and trade to attack and defame the lawyers, judges, litigants, businesses, and persons who will not succumb to his demands for money, threats or prevarications. 

Note: George M. Pavia Esq. is the named partner of the Manhattan law firm of Pavia & Harcourt. Justice Sonja Sotomayer was a partner of the law firm before becoming a federal court judge, and ultimately, an Associate Justice of the Supreme Court of the United States.

"[James C. Couri] demonstrates a fundamental disrespect for the legal process, and a willingness to make baseless attacks on the integrity of any individual or institution in his disputes." Hon. Joan A. Madden, Justice Supreme Court, June 25, 2007.

Couri (image left), many of his victims become distraught simply by the thought of him. And to those unfortunate souls who may be mistreated by him in the future, this blog serves as a warning.

To his credit, George M. Pavia, Esq. did not back down from Couri or accede to his money demands; the jury ruled in favor of Pavia and against Couri.

One juror told me, after the verdict, that a number of the jurors were afraid that Couri would sue them if the verdict did not go his way.

To Jim Couri the smallest slight, or no slight at all, justifies a relentless no-holds-barred campaign of harassment and lies to damage his victim's reputation for the purpose of having the victim pay Couri money to stop.

Jim's malicious form of behavior includes hundreds of faxes, emails, phone calls and court motions to harass, threaten and intimidate.

"The Pavias argued not only were the number (200+) and content of the communications outrageous, but that by sending the faxes to George Pavia's law firm and to the tenant's places of business, Couri intended to harass, threaten and intimidate the Pavias and the tenant to accede to Couri's demands regarding his complaints about his tenancy."

     --- From the Decision and Order of the Hon. Joan A. Madden, Supreme Court, State of New York, June 25, 2007.

Jim Couri's brother, John A. Couri, businessman and philanthropist, has described in court papers Jim's "vicious, defamatory and false statements against an almost limitless number of persons and entities."

  • "No individual should be permitted, as James [Couri] has done in this case, to use and abuse the Courts by pro se commencement of litigation reasserting claims repeatedly released or adjudicated, and, in the context of those proceedings, to make vicious, defamatory and false statements against an almost limitless number of persons and entities. I, my wife, our child, and my business and professional associates must be spared this relentless annoyance and expense." Written by Jim's brother John Couri in a sworn affidavit filed in United States District Court Southern District of New York, 92 Civ. 2991 (CLB).

Jim Couri was declared a vexatious litigant in California by Judge Bork, on June 3, 2011, in a case Couri brought against Katy Tomas and Tony Tomez.

Jim Couri & Republish to the Internet an Image They Knew Was Fabricated, With Specific Intent to Harm and Injure.

About a year ago, Couri had a one hour, one-day a week, AM radio talk show in Palm Springs, California. The broadcast was about scams; after a few shows, Couri attacked a number of doctors employed at the U.C.L.A. Medical Center. It appears the radio station owner(s) found out about Couri's background, and his claims against the medical center; because overnight, all reference to Couri and the show had been removed from the radio station's website.

I do not seek money by force or threat from Couri (that is Couri's modus operandi); and I do not smear Couri, because everything reported here is from published court documents.

Hardly Six Months Go By Before I Receive a Call From Someone Claiming to be Viciously Harassed by Couri.

Is James C. Couri Attempting to Distance Himself From Scamraiders To Give Scamraiders The Credibility It So Disparately Lacks?
