Condit must pay paper's costs in defamation suit

September 27, 2007|From Times Staff and Wire Reports

A Phoenix judge ruled Wednesday that former California congressman Gary Condit must pay an Arizona newspaper's legal fees for defense against his defamation lawsuit.

The judge awarded the Sonoran News $42,680 in attorney fees and costs.

At issue was a sentence in a story that said Condit lied to investigators about his relationship with Washington intern Chandra Levy, who disappeared and was later found dead.
