RE: SETTLEMENT OF INGRAM v. CIFTCI
I am pleased to report a settlement of my case against Michael Ciftci for defamation styled Christopher Ingram v. Michael Ciftci Hillsborough County Circuit Court Case No. 11-CA-001632-B.
Ciftci issued the following statement:
“During the heat of my campaign for Tampa City Council earlier this year, I misspoke when I made a statement about Chris Ingram. To be clear, Mr. Ingram never “pitched” or proposed working for me or on behalf of my campaign in any shape or form, and he never engaged in any type of “shakedown” or other illegal or unethical behavior. I wholeheartedly apologize for any misinterpretation of my statements, and I regret any damage my actions may have had on Mr. Ingram and his professional reputation. We have settled the matter and have decided to move forward.”
