Good Libel Reform report but Richard Dawkins is being sued
Today a Parliamentary report recommends reforming our completely rubbish libel laws. There is a lobby of Parliament on Wednesday 9th November at 6 pm. More details about this meeting on www.libelreform.org.
While on Tuesday Jack of Kent published this "Richard Dawkins ("Clinton Richard Dawkins (commonly known as Richard Dawkins)"), the Richard Dawkins Foundation for Science and Reason, Amazon UK, and Vaughan John Jones are being sued for libel by businessman Christopher McGrath and his company McG Production Limited.
There is a strike out application scheduled for 10 November 2011.
More details to follow". Check here on my own interest in such matters.
(apologies - I'm following Jack and disabling comments on this post - for now).
