CASE ENTRY

Tobinick v. Novella

In a blog post, doctor suggests another doctor’s method for treating Alzheimer’s and other ailments (by injecting a drug used to treat arthritis along patients’ spines) is quackery. Libel? Eleventh Circuit (2017): No, the purported quack’s suit is a Strategic Lawsuit Against Public Participation. Eleventh Circuit (2018): And he can pay the blogger’s legal bills—$260k.
