After issuing an ultimatum to abuse-alleging ex Jenn Allen, TechCrunch founder and investor Michael Arrington is now trying to take her to federal court. In demand for trial filed just yesterday, Arrington's lawyers allege Allen tried to "smear [his] name on the internet" and "destroy his reputation."

Arrington claims Allen's comments were made "with malice," and were only a result of their breakup—he'll be seeking damages of "over $75,000" accordingly. You can read the document in its entirety below—so far Allen hasn't made any public comment.
