Court Says Simon Singh Can Claim 'Fair Comment' In Calling BCA Claims Bogus
from the that's-not-bogus dept
Thankfully, there's some good news, as the court has now decided that the original ruling was a mistake and Singh can use a defense of "fair comment" as the basis for his column. As such the trial will continue, but Singh is in a better position. Amazingly, despite all of this the BCA still wants to fight. At some point you wonder why they don't just back down. The more they fight, the more people expose them for making, yes, bogus claims. Singh and others aren't claiming that chiropractors don't do any good -- they're just questioning some of the more extreme, and scientifically unsupported, claims made by the BCA. If the BCA were smart, they'd focus on improving their messaging, not fighting back.
