The uses of British justice

Thomas Lipscomb has alerted us to a story we have not previously heard of, involving the use of the British courts by a Saudi sheik to pursue a defamation lawsuit against an American writer for allegations made in a book published exclusively in the United States. The American writer has allowed a default judgment to be entered against her in the British courts.
Lipscomb’s article appears in Editor & Publisher, a publication geared to the newspaper business. This story cries out for the attention of the MSM. Where are they when we need them? In any event, don’t miss this one: “Another First Amendment landmark case?”
