GRAND RAPIDS, MI - A man accused of cyber-squatting Grand Rapids businessman and triathlete Ryan Leestma acknowledges he set up a website using his former boss' name.

The man admitted posting news stories about Leestma and sharing his Facebook posts, originally published on others' pages.
...
"To the extent that the news articles and Facebook posts made by the Plaintiff reflect a negative personal character the republication of said items as a group by Defendant is critical commentary and not actionable, as alleged by Plaintiff," Bliss's attorney, Christopher Gibbons, wrote in response to a federal lawsuit filed by Leestma.
...
Leestma originally filed the lawsuit against John Doe, suspecting that a former worker had registered the website under his name. He later named Bliss as the defendant.
Leestma alleged that Bliss made it look like Leestma started the site, and shared his social media posts and reposted a news story to make him look like a "deceptive businessman and braggart," his attorney, John Di Giacomo said.

...
"ISI brought suit against Muskegon County based on its breach of the parties' agreements," Leestma said in a written statement. "We are confident in our position and that the County will be held accountable with a substantial damage award. The countersuit has no merit and was filed to shift the focus away from the County's substantial damage exposure. After the Court hears the evidence, we are confident that the countersuit will be dismissed."
Leestma and Kaplan's representatives have previously have publicly acknowledged the personal loan, which was said to be paid off. Leestma explained the circumstances of his personal loan to Kaplan:
...

"Every invoice that contained hardware or software was approved after serial numbers, contract numbers, license keys were presented and verified by a county employee," Leestma said. "How can you double pay an invoice when the same person is cataloging all that hardware and software received?"
"Frankly, no one should believe a word that the county says," Leestma said.
