#LARPWars in the News
We were the first to break this story in October 2019. Since then, ShadowBox Strategies has been in the news.
First Jimmys Llama did an exposé in January 2020:
Then notorious “QSlayer” Will Sommer of The Daily Beast wrote about it in February:
The tale was then picked up by Raw Story:
The story has also been covered at Dave Acton‘s blog SDNY.org:
Looks like this story’s not going anywhere.
#Coronavirus be damned; the Well Traveled Fox is suing her former partners.
Thanks to Lestat, aka Cheshire3301, for bringing this to my attention:
Ever the victim, Defango claims that he was sued on his birthday (March 21). In fact the suit was filed March 16 2020.
Defango is only on the hook for $499.19. He has threatened to counter-sue for either $75,000 or $1 million; on what basis remains unclear at this time.
It seems Fox is trying to claw back some of the money awarded to Trevor in his lawsuit against Jesslyn Radack (who Defango publicly accused of leaking the “Seth Rich” DNC files to Wikileaks).
Defango’s threats against Beth and her family have been included:
We even get a mention! Posting Fox’s own comments, with redactions at her request, is supposedly “false, derogatory, or threatening” to her in some unspecified way.
It’s interesting to note that the Twitter account mentioned in a) refers to PaxNomad, which is one of Fox’s sock puppet accounts. So she is blaming herself for defaming herself – the height of legal confusion.

Fox certainly picked an interesting Beverly Hills lawyer, check out some of his Yelp reviews:
As this story unfolds, we will continue to provide you with the most accurate coverage available on the Internet.
Defango’s “birthday lawsuit” stream:
Videos referenced by Fox in the lawsuit:
Thomas Schoenberger (allegedly) has responded to this article on Twitter:
Did Fox initiate this lawsuit out of coronavirus quarantine-induced boredom?
The #LARPwars sure create some strange bedfellows:
Meanwhile Defango’s landlady “Cheri CBD” is accusing Fox of using this lawsuit to stalk Defango and harass her elderly father. She is about to “sick 2 attorneys onto her”:
Conspiracy theories abound:
Nothing new for Cheri. She also accused Thomas Schoenberger and Dave Acton of doxxing her father:
The police visit she is referring to happened 5 days after Isaac Kappy’s mysterious death. It was allegedly called in by Tanya Cornwell, wife of Defango’s former attorney Steven Biss. Defango claims it can’t have been her because the phone number given on the police report was different from the cellphone number he has for her.
