Martin also requests that his interests, costs, and attorney’s fees be paid. Marty stated in the lawsuit that Sanchez’s actions towards Martin were done out of malice, and for that reason, Martin and his family members no longer feel safe in Puerto Rico because Sánchez really dirtied Martin’s name there.
