A final decision has been reached in favour of Max Cavalera in the ongoing libel case filed in Brazil by Cavalera's former sister-in-law.
The former wife of Cavalera's brother Igor alleged that Cavalera defamed her in his 2014 autobiography, My Bloody Roots. Cavalera was initially ordered to pay a sum to the plaintiff, who then wrongfully claimed to have won the case before the final judgment was made.
"It feels great to put this case behind me," Cavalera says. "It was very frustrating knowing I had always been honest about the events of my life, even the negative times. I am grateful to the courts in Brazil for seeing the truth in this matter and letting justice prevail."
Cavalera won every appeal, the case is considered "res judicata," meaning it cannot be changed, and Cavalera is released from any obligation toward the plaintiff. Additionally, due to baselessly filing multiple appeals, Cavalera's lawyer petitioned the court to penalize the plaintiff. As a result, the plaintiff will now have to pay a fine of one percent of the total amount she asked for from Cavalera.
Cavalera was represented in this case by Daniela Pasqua of Pasqua Sociedade de Advogados.
Owners of SRCVinyl, prominent independent vinyl record retailer, to open world’s first “Craft Distillery Record Shop”
SRCVinyl founders Jenna Miles and Danny Keyes have launched a small batch distillery – Limited Distilling, which will share its tasting room with SRCVinyl creating a unique indie record shop and craft spirits experience in the heart of Niagara, Canada’s wine region.
Grand opening celebrations will commence October 18th – 20th with free tours & tastings, meet and greet with the distillery owners, a limited whisky release and a complimentary grand opening gift.
Free tours can be booked HERE: http://www.distillery.ltd.
Spirits available at the grand opening will include a Rye and Corn “Sour Mash” Moonshine, Jalapeno Moonshine, Mint Elixir and a single cask Pumpkin Spiced Rum. Additionally, Limited Distilling will be releasing a very small batch of aged, single malt whisky, exclusively for the Grand Opening.
Located at 14 Henegan Road, Niagara-on-the-Lake, Ontario, Limited Distillery is centrally located within Niagara’s famous brewery, winery and distillery trail. The 9,000 square foot industrial space will provide spirit and vinyl record enthusiasts the ability to tour and experience a true craft distillery, sample and purchase seasonal, small-batch spirits while shopping for vinyl records.
Limited Distilling was built as a place to explore, create and experiment with recipe ideas and curiosities. The distillery is furnished with a variety of equipment that will run it as a full-on 'spirit' laboratory. Many spirit companies focus on producing a few or even a single type of alcohol that is often ‘neutral’ tasting. Limited Distilling will place emphasis on exploring a variety of products while embracing the uniqueness and characteristics of each batch. Spirit runs will often be small allowing the opportunity to explore the use of different ingredients and spirit productions methods, both local and from around the world.
SRCVinyl is an independent online and brick & mortar retailer specializing in vinyl. Additionally, SRCVinyl exclusively release major label titles on high quality, limited edition vinyl. The SRCVinyl release repertoire includes top-selling albums from artists such as Blink-182, Angels & Airwaves, Thrice, Jimmy Eat World, Silverchair, Quicksand as well as various soundtracks such as Forrest Gump, Clerks, Sopranos and more.
