The recent incoming link (at my other site) from Abe’s site alerted me to his post on surviving a libel suit. Considering that the cases – there were two consolidated libel cases – had been dismissed as against Abe, and considering that there’s no motion for reconsideration/appeal filed by any of the parties involved (none that I know of), perhaps we could discuss these cases for reporting and academic purposes.
This brief introduction on this series is Part I.
The basic facts of the libel cases will be discussed in Part II.
The defenses of the alleged individual authors, as well as the ruling of the Investigating Prosecutor as against them, will be discussed in Part III.
The ruling of the Investigating Prosecutor in favor of Abe will be discussed in Part IV.
The countercharge of perjury, as well as the ruling of the Investigating Prosecutor on this matter, will be discussed in Part V.
The analysis will be contained in Part VI.
