Current libel law in the U.S. has proven problematic for plaintiffs and media alike. From the plaintiff's perspective, the law seems frustrating and unfair, providing little opportunity to repair reputations; from the media standpoint, the high cost of litigation threatens to deter journalistic pursuit of controversial stories.
Over the last decade, these problems have led legal scholars to propose comprehensive reforms. Some of these proposals have been available to the limited readership of law reviews, while others were published only in abbreviated form-- have been the subject of heated debate. Presenting the most significant of these proposals complete and under one cover this volume makes the issues and controversies surrounding libel law reform accessible to a wide readership for the first time.
