San Juan County, District 40

We thought the Harte-Hanks Communications v. Connaughton was a very interesting case. It brought up many cases of malice against Connaughton such as questionable sources, the lack of reliable advice, taped evidence to the contrary, and Connaughton's statements to the contrary. This is a good example of libel, because it was making Connaughton's reliability in his profession.

  1. Awesome job on putting a real life example under the microscope to better understand this concept. Did your group have a lot of discussion about the case? Any opposing forces?
