Claims Examples

Journalism – Defamation claim

We vigorously defended a defamation action with respect to an opinion piece about a high-profile individual. Our insured was a major news publication and the information contained in the article was factual albeit disparaging to the claimant. All the comments were within laws protecting freedom of expression and we upheld precedence protecting news and entertainment professionals.
