    February 13,2018

    Anthony Watts

    Excerpt:

    "I got word tonight from David Ball, son of Dr. Tim Ball via Facebook messenger:

    This morning the judge dismissed all charges in the lawsuit brought against Tim by BC Green Party leader Andrew Weaver. It is a great victory for free speech.

    It’s a good start but reading the judgement, not near what it might have been.

    [83] In summary, the Article is a poorly written opinion piece that offers Dr. Ball’s views on conventional climate science and Dr. Weaver’s role as a supporter and teacher of that science. While the Article is derogatory of Dr. Weaver, it is not defamatory, in that the impugned words do not genuinely threaten Dr. Weaver’s reputation in the minds of reasonably thoughtful and informed readers. Dr. Weaver has therefore failed to establish the first element of the defamation test.

    As usual, when liberals are involved, it is probably not over. They will keep moving the case from court to court under various guises until they find a friendly venue.
    Liberals! The real fascists.

    Sadly, I think you are right. Nothing is ever "settled" until it goes their way.
