TV Preacher Can Sue ABC For Defamation

In an opinion filed Tuesday, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit reversed the trial court's dismissal of a suit by televangelist Rev. Frederick Price against ABC for defamation based on a video of a sermon that aired on "20/20."

A copy of the opinion is available here.

The AP/law.com has more.

Thanks to Lisa Smith-Butler for the alert.
