Article Update: Tae Kim (attorney for Lisa Kim) sent out the following press release on December 2nd:
LISA KIM SUES QURRATUL-AIN HAIDER-SHAH (A/K/A AINY HAIDER-SHAH) FOR $2 MILLION FOR DEFAMATION
On November 22, 2021, Lisa Kim, Chairperson of Citizens for a Strong and Safe Howard County In Opposition to CB 63-2020 (“Sanctuary County Law”) filed a defamation lawsuit against Qurratul-Ain Haider-Shah, who goes by the alias of Ainy Haider-Shah, for making false and defamatory statements against Lisa Kim. Ms. Haider-Shah falsely and maliciously accused Lisa Kim of deceiving registered voters of Howard County to sign the referendum petition to put the Sanctuary County Law on the November 2022 ballot. Deceiving voters to sign a referendum petition is a criminal offense along with numerous collateral consequences.
According to Lisa Kim’s lawyer, Tae H. Kim, “We have shown, and will continue to show, that defamatory statements against my client will not be tolerated and we will pursue lawsuits against anyone who defames Lisa Kim. We look forward to litigating this matter and any other case where people believe they can defame someone without any basis for their defamatory statements.”
