Brian Miller is suing over remarks made on the John and Ken show in November and postings on an Internet site devoted to finding missing children.
DIAMOND BAR – A man whose three boys disappeared with their mother in October has filed suit against the children’s grandfather, accusing him of libel, slander and invasion of privacy.
According to court documents, Brian Miller alleges Jude Lopez defamed him during appearances on KFI’s “John and Ken Show” in November. The lawsuit also alleges that in December, Lopez posted private information about Miller on a Web site devoted to searching for missing children.
A hearing in the case is scheduled for June 24.
Lopez claims all of his statements to the talk show hosts were true and denies trying to humiliate Miller.
“If you listen to John and Ken, I never said his name one time,” Lopez said Friday. “This suit is a money maker for those attorneys. I have proof of everything.”
Lopez’s daughter, Jennifer Lopez Dejongh, 30, and her children, Brian, 8, and twins Christian and Evan, 6, disappeared Nov. 19 in defiance of a court order to turn over the children to Miller’s parents, Rep. Gary Miller, R-Brea.
