Jones wins defamation damages of $104,000

By Steven | May 18, 2010

Bob Jones won $104,000 in his defamation case against Chris Lee. I don’t know much about the case, but on this report it illustrates some good lessons: an apology in time can avert an expensive and risky court battle; both sides’ costs probably exceeded the damages award (though such actions are cheap compared with costs in the UK); and it doesn’t pay to take on Bob Jones, as Hugh Templeton also famously discovered.
