The Count of Monte Cristo: The Sequel?
Margaret Wente notes that when Lord Black sues , he wins. I have no doubt, that pattern will continue.
His next book will skewer his enemies. HIs lawyers should put the fear of ruin into them in the near future. I agree with David Frum, restore Lord Black's citizenship.
Journalists have learned the hard way that Lord Black always wins. He has sued most of the major Canadian media, including the CBC, the Toronto Star, The Canadian Press and The Globe and Mail. In 1983, he sued his biographer, Peter Newman, over a snarky story Mr. Newman wrote for a society magazine called Town and Country. In 2005, he sued him again over a vicious characterization of Barbara in Mr. Newman’s memoir, Here Be Dragons. He once sued writer Ron Graham for a passing remark made in a book called God’s Dominion: A Skeptic’s Quest; his complaint was that “the author announces that having me for an acquaintance taught him that greed and ego add peculiarly to the sum total of human misery.” He extracted an effusive apology, which appeared in an ad in The Globe.
