CORNWALL – A website operator has sent a cease and desist letter to Cornwall Coun. Brock Frost over alleged defamatory comments.

Paralegal James Moak, acting on behalf of Jamie Gilcig and The Cornwall Free News, said his client has been defamed after Frost sent an email to local media Dec. 7 making several acrid comments.

The email from Frost was about his intention to sue Gilcig.

Moak is demanding that Frost take steps to remove the comments from websites, plus a retraction and an apology on Facebook and a written apology to his client.

Moak has given Frost one week to comply.

This comes a day after Frost filed a defamation suit against Gilcig, alleging he lost nearly $15,000 in a real estate deal.

Frost is also asking for an additional $25,000 in punitive damages.

“Btw, I still have not been served by Mr. Frost,” said Gilcig Tuesday afternoon in an email to local media.

Cornwall Newswatch has independently verified the lawsuit was filed with the Cornwall civil matters court late Monday morning.
