Judge dismisses racketeering and defamation suit filed by Power & Light District’s owner

In its federal suit, Cordish Companies alleged that the law firm Dickens Law LLC and attorneys Linda Dickens and Austin Johnston engaged in a racketeering enterprise when they threatened to expose an alleged “rabbit” scheme to the public. Dickens Law LLC has alleged that Cordish employed “rabbits” to initiate fights with African-American patrons to discourage them from coming to the district. Cordish has denied that it did any such thing.
