Bengaluru court issued notice to Sequoia & others in a Defamation Suit by Algo Legal

Hearing the INR 1 Cr defamation suit filed by Algo Legal and its founder Sandeep Kapoor, a Bengaluru City Civil and Sessions court issued notices to defendants Sequoia Capital, Twitter, and a number of media outlets, including the Hindustan Times and Times of India, today. However, the court refused to issue an order on the interim injunction or gag order on the publication of Algo Legal-related articles.

While Sequoia Capital India severed ties with its long-term legal partner last week, reports speculated that Algo Legal had coerced some Sequoia portfolio companies into paying higher fees by threatening government officials with investigations. These reports prompted the defamation suit and the interim injunction order.
