Judge Reinstates Defamation Lawsuit Against Professor

The judge who dismissed a defamation lawsuit against a University of California, Irvine professor has now reinstated the suit, based on new evidence presented to the court. One of the authors of a study published in the Journal of Reproductive Medicine objected to statements published by Dr. Bruce Flamm in the journal OB/GYN News. The court originally dismissed the suit under California's SLAPP statute in November 2007. Read more here and here in a previous post. See also here (Citizen Media Law Project listing).
