I celebrate that a chapter is over with victory for me in the Court of Law in Spain on a long law suit process against Juan Estrada (Juan Manuel Espinosa Estrada) for defamation as he slandered me as well as Andalusian Guitars.
Juan Estrada was manager at “De Lucia Gestion S.L” a society meant to manage Paco De Lucia’s official web site (www.pacodelucia.org) as well as their business of selling the now discontinued guitars made by Vicente Carrillo branded as “Paco de Lucia”
Mr. Estrada utterly violated the law by slandering me and he was defeated in court. Here I share the final court records in my favor regarding that law suit against him. Please click at the following link:

Juan Estrada trabajaba como manager de la sociedad “De Lucia Gestion S.L” (que ya no existe) misma que manejaba la web oficial de Paco de Lucia (www.pacodelucia.org) y también se ocupaba en vender las guitarras (hace ya años descontinuadas) hechas por Vicente Carrillo con la marca “Paco de Lucia”.
