Palm Beach Circuit Judge Joseph Curley denied Kasowitz Benson Torres’ and Michael Paul Bowena’s motion to dismiss a lawsuit brought by Laura Perlmutter, the billionaire philanthropist whose husband, Issac, is chairman of Marvel Entertainment. The plaintiff sought damages based upon accusations of malicious prosecution.
