Speaking Of Losing Your Lawyer: Mark Steyn Has Lost His in Mann v. National Review

A print-screen from a recently filed motion (its only two pages long):

One can only speculate.  But Steyn has, as Ezra Levant sometimes does, kept up with the abuse after proceedings have been launched against him.  For example last week on his N.R. blog. Lawyers don't like it when you make their job defending you more difficult by playing an asshole on the Internet.

So it might have something to do with that.

Some background here.

Only one side of any given story is ever presented here. Rest assured that when Steyn wins, not one word about it will be reported on this blog...

Popcorn it is.

“Having been investigated by almost one dozen bodies due to accusations of fraud, and none of those investigations having found Plaintiff’s [Mann’s] work to be fraudulent, it must be concluded that the accusations are provably false. Reference to Plaintiff, as a fraud is a misstatement of fact.”

Judge Greene had been embarrassing the bench for far too long...and was likely purposefully retired...

"...it must be concluded that the accusations are provably false."

And it also must be concluded that the author of that irrelevancy (very likely Greene herself) to establishing libel know next to nothing about the law itself.
