Ontario Court Rules Warman Defamed By Internet Postings

An Ontario court has ruled that Richard Warman, a prominent human rights lawyer who has launched many complaints about Internet hate, was defamed online in a series of postings.  The court noted the effect of instant and possibly global dissemination of defamatory material over the Internet, awarding damages totaling $30,000, and ordering the posters to post full retractions within 10 days to all websites containing the defamatory material.

    He is also going after Free Dominion again. The papers have just been filed. Given the nature the complaints in this case, I wouldn’t be surprised if he won against FD.
