French Court Upholds Book Review Against Libel Charge

Lyonette Louis-Jacques recently mentioned the criminal libel charges brought in France against an American publication for a review of her American book. The French court has now ruled that the case was not properly brought in French courts, that the charge in any event had no merit, and that as a French-trained lawyer, the plaintiff ought to have known that and was therefore liable for abuse of process and ordered to pay the defendant 8000 euros.

Nice to see justice done so forthrightly.
