Defamation: Seven Allegedly Defamatory Statements Made In Newspaper Article Written By The New York Post Were Privileged As Fair And True Report Of Judicial Proceeding

In defamation action, the New York Post submitted documentary evidence conclusively establishing, as matter of law, that the seven statements it published in an article describing plaintiff’s involvement in separate defamation action in which he had been named as defendant were privileged, under absolute privilege for publication of fair and true report of judicial proceeding, since the article’s omission of certain information that was contained in the complaint of the separate defamation action did not alter the article’s substantially accurate character, the article’s inaccuracies were not so egregious as to remove article from privilege, and article’s headline and caption were fair and true representations of statements published. Read the Opinion.
