Make Libel Law

The firm filed a libel action against the Times/Review Newspaper Corporation concerning its publication, The News Review. The action alleged the stories carried by the newspaper misrepresented a client’s prior business practices and regulatory history. The firm was opposed by one of the more well-known first amendment litigation firms in the country. We obtained a seminal decision. For the first time in New York, a court explicitly ruled that SLAPP suit protection is not available for media companies.
