Why hasn’t Rob Ford sued the Star?

Because truth’s a defence, that’s why.

And the truth, she’s a-comin’.

    For that matter, why haven’t Perrin, Wright, or Duffy sued?

      Why would Wright or Duffy sue?

      Wright confirmed he gave Duffy a personal cheque for $90,000

    If he issued a Statement of Claim, wouldn’t he be subject to a potential Defence motion to attend for hair strand testing?

    Maybe it depends on how long it would take to get any stuff out of his system.

    When is the crack incident supposed to have happened?

    A bigger question: when do ads with Harper and Ford together start appearing?

    OR take a drug test OR take a lie detector test. Innocent people would be outraged and would be screaming their innocence from the roof of freaking city hall.

    He doesn’t even have to sue.

    If this is libellous, he needs to issue a defamation notice within 6 weeks of become aware of the alleged defamation. He is not required to do anything after that, but it is a notice to the Star and the world that he genuinely thinks he’s been defamed.

    In fact, since defamation is about reputation, a court will hold it against you if delay in giving a defamation notice. The longer you let a defamation hang out there without challenge, the more likely a court will conclude it wasn’t a big deal and your lawsuit has no merit.

    Gawker is crowd-souring the money to make the video public. They’ve already raised $158,000! http://www.indiegogo.com/projects/rob-ford-crackstarter

    Why is it that anyone who thinks Ford should sue (re: neo-cons), thinks he should sue the Star? Never do they say he should sue Gawker…..you know, the people who broke the story. What a bunch of whiney, biased babies.

    Simple. Lawsuit would launch a civil trial which requires a lower standard of proof than criminal trial. No doubt papers lawyers, concerned about innuendo, would have ensured enough evidence to win a civil trial. Fords say the papers have billions of dollars (right!) so they “can’t go up against that”. Poor little rich boys. OJ was nailed at the civil trial.
