After being listed as a company at risk of bankruptcy in a recent Audit Integrity report, Hertz has sued the company for defamation.
Reuters: In a complaint filed Friday with the Bergen County Superior Court in New Jersey, Hertz accused Audit Integrity Inc and its chief executive, Jack Zwingli, of defamation and trade libel over a Sept. 15 report that included Hertz among 20 large companies “most likely to declare bankruptcy” within a year.
Mark Frissora, Hertz’s chief executive, in a statement on Monday called the lawsuit “an appropriate response to the publication of false and harmful information” about Hertz.
