Appeals judges in Northern Ireland have overturned an unprecedented libel verdict in which a pizzeria owner successfully sued a Belfast newspaper over a lousy review. Chief Justice Brian Kerr ruled that a jury erred last year when it awarded $50,000 to the owner of the Goodfellas in Belfast. A 2000 review in the Irish News had deemed his restaurant smoky, sloppy and unappetizing. Kerr said the jury failed to consider whether the reviewer showed malice. Irish News Editor Noel Doran said the original verdict threatened the ability of newspapers to publish reviews.
