JL Kirk Associates Accuses Blogger of Libel

The quickest way to make sure that an unfavorable account of your business practices is spread as far and as wide as possible? Send a cease and desist letter.

Blogger Kathrine Coble posted an account of her and her husband’s dealings with headhunting firm JL Kirk Associates. I read her article and it seems pretty open, honest and up front to me.

Kirk and Associates will get you a job just drop the 4 G’s in advance. In my opinion that’s lower than a snake’s belly. If they are so good then they should find you the job and then request a reasonable payment. If the job is good people will not complain about the cost of the service. Besides, if you have four grand to drop on a less than sure thing, you probably don't need the job. See how this works?

But apparently JL Kirk Associates wants Mrs. Coble’s story to be #1 on Google and Google news too. So, they sent a letter demanding that Katherine take down her less than flattering post. They wound up Kirking themselves.

Hat Tip: Instapundit.

Others Blogging the Kirk & Associates story include Blue Crab Boulevard , Captain's Quarters and Bill Hobbs.
