Hunter Biden’s lawyers told a federal judge on Friday that they are trying to depose Steve Bannon and Rudy Giuliani in a countersuit related to Hunter’s laptop.
Hunter Biden sued John Paul McIsaac, a Delaware computer repairman who tried to fix Hunter’s damaged computers in 2019.
John Paul MacIsaac’s life changed in April 2019, when a visibly drunk Hunter Biden stopped by his computer repair shop with three damaged MacBook Pro laptops.
One was destroyed beyond repair and he returned it to Hunter.
Another needs the keyboard he lent Hunter. He never got that keyboard back. Mack left with Isaac to fix the third laptop Hunter.
Hunter Biden never returned to John Paul McIsaac’s repair shop to retrieve his property.
After several failed attempts to reach Hunter Biden, John Paul MacIsaac has claimed legal ownership of Hunter Biden’s abandoned laptop.
Now Hunter Biden is suing John Paul MacIsaac and seeking punitive damages.
Hunter’s lawyers are targeting Steve Bannon and Rudy Giuliani for ‘disseminating’ Hunter Biden’s data for political purposes.
NBC News reported:
Attorneys for Hunter Biden stepped up their legal assault on top Trump allies on Friday, filing a countersuit over the alleged release of Biden’s electronic data and notifying a federal judge of their intent to obtain depositions from Steve Bannon and Rudy Giuliani.
The court filings also target computer repair shop owner John Paul McIsaac, who said Hunter Biden dropped off a water-damaged laptop at his Wilmington, Delaware store about 18 months before the 2020 election. Biden’s attorneys are alleging invasion of privacy and arguing that McIsaac helped Hunter copy and disseminate Biden’s data for political and commercial purposes.
In the lawsuit, Biden wants the return of any copy of his data, compensatory and punitive damages and attorneys’ fees for McIsaac’s “willful, intentional and reckless conduct.”
The countersuit and responses to MacIsaac’s original lawsuit refer to public statements made by MacIsaac, Bannon, Giuliani and others about their involvement with Hunter Biden’s electronic data. The new lawsuit alleges that Delaware law does not allow MacIsaac to access or copy the data, drawing a distinction between an abandoned “device” and data embedded on or within the device.
