Montreal "men's rights" activist Andy Srougi has finally lost his vexatious defamation lawsuit against À bâbord! - a Leftist magazine - and feminist activist Barbara Legault.
Srougi had accused both of having "uttered hateful comments" about him in Legault's article "Des hommes contre le féminisme" (men against feminism), published in the October/November 2006 issue of À bâbord! magazine (#16).
The trial was held on June 4-6 in Montreal and judgment was rendered on September 12.
For a full account (only in French so far) of this important victory for freedom of speech and the fight against antifeminist intimidation, click here for that page on À bâbord! magazine's new website.
