Newspaper verdict

Posted By on Thu, Mar 12, 2009 at 11:30 AM

The Arkansas Supreme Court today upheld dismissal of a libel lawsuit filed against The Courier in Russellville. It published information from a police report. The plaintiff said he was libeled by hearsay accounts that accused him of rape. The decision upholds the fair report privilege that attaches to such things as police reports and other public documents.
