Cloak-and-Dagger Saga Over Cybercrime, Trump Dossier Plays Out in Miami Courtroom With Celebrity Lawyer

A federal courtroom in Miami is now the intersection for a celebrity attorney, two major cybercrimes and a foreign tech firm with an ephemeral South Florida address and entanglement in the Trump-Russia probe, reports the Miami Herald.

The case involves a defamation lawsuit brought by Cyprus-based entrepreneur Aleksej Gubarev against online news outlet Buzzfeed, which published the collection of research memos known as the Trump dossier.

Gubarev also sued former British spy Christopher Steele, a Russia expert who wrote the dossier, in London.

Colorful lawyer Roy Black is representing Buzzfeed in the Miami suit.
