Great White Lose Suit
Blabbermouth reports: On June 8, 2005, former GREAT WHITE manager Charrie Foglio was cleared of defamation charges brought by GREAT WHITE founder and vocalist Jack Russell. Russell, who sued for 10 million dollars plus punitive damages, claimed that Foglio, a co-manager of the band from April to September of 2003 with Obi Steinman of STC Entertainment, falsely told the press and others that Russell and Steinman "stole money" from the charity. Judge Robert L. Hess of the Los Angeles Superior court ruled that any comment made by Foglio regarding the charity and/or missing money was one of public concern and that she was thus protected by the First Amendment. The only way Russell and Steinman could have overturned the courts order was to prove that Foglio made these comments with "clear and convincing malice" and that they were in fact not true. Russell, Steinman and their attorney Ed McPherson could prove neither.[see full story for more]- Click Here for the Full Story
