The state Supreme Court, rebuffing major news organizations in California, ruled Thursday that private individuals can sue for libel even if a story that defames them with false information is published without malice and is in the public interest. In a unanimous ruling, the court held that California's statute governing libel does not shield news organizations from suits by private figures simply because an article or broadcast is in the public interest. "If the Legislature had intended to create a broad public interest privilege for the news media, the Legislature could easily have done so in reasonably clear language," Justice David Eagleson said in the opinion.
