“American Icon” authors, publisher sued for defamationSteroids and libel suits go together like liver and onions: really well actually, but they still leave a bad taste in your mouth:
The publisher and authors of a book about steroid use in major league baseball were sued today by a Texas man who says they falsely claimed he was "pushing" steroids to professional athletes and using his gym as a front for selling drugs, according to The Gibson Law Firm.
I didn't read it and don't know too much about the underlying facts of any of it, so I can't really opine on the merits. I'll say, though, that, given the subject matter, the publisher here probably had about 247 lawyers look this thing over for potential lible liability prior to releasing it.
Or at least I hope they did. Can't tell with big publishers these days.
