Geof Stone Talks to WBEZ About "The Politics of Slander"
Alison Cuddy: "The Vancouver Olympics are fast approaching, but here in Chicago we aren’t jealous. Nope. Not one bit. That’s because we live in a state home to a different sort of sport: the perennial clash of titans known as Illinois Politics. That’s a lot of mudslinging which made us wonder: In this litigious society, why don’t we see more cases of libel or slander in response to the foul-mouthed? Are such bare-knuckled barbs fair game? Here to help sort it out are Daliah Saper, principle attorney at Saper Law Offices, and Geoffrey Stone, a professor of law at the University of Chicago."
