Richard Warman Vs. David Icke: Warman Wins Again

From Richard's website:

5 March 2015

British conspiracy writer David Icke and co-defendants have paid Canadian human rights lawyer Richard Warman $210,000 CDN (117,000 GBP) in damages and legal costs to settle a libel action against them.

In 1999-2000, Warman had worked with various Jewish and anti-racism groups to notify public venues in Canada of discriminatory elements within Icke’s mishmash of conspiracy theories. After being provided with material from Icke’s own writings, a number of these venues withdrew permission for Icke to use their facilities in his tours.

In retaliation, Icke included false allegations in his 2001 book Children of the Matrix that Warman was seeking to suppress Icke’s purported exposure of Satanic child abuse and murder.

David Icke, if you don't know, is this guy.  If you want to hear him sound-off re the The Reptilians and other matters, this is a Youtube interview.  I haven't listened to it, but typically  he sounds kind of interesting for a few minutes, and then you gradually realize he's an unhinged babbler.  Although apparently one with a substantial following, having sold 55,000 copies of the book in question.

As an aside, the Fourniers attempted to use an Icke television appearance in one of their defamation cases; I can't remember if the judge allowed it or not, but I can't imagine how it would have helped their cause.  Also,  Seeker's Books, where I still occasionally go shopping, got caught up  this lawsuit. Pity.  Last time I was in there I listened the proprietor lament the state of the book business.
