I never stated that Dr. Paul should have hired better lawyers although I believe that is a fact. Injury with words is difficult to prove in any case but whomever was the creator of this video had bad intentions. Trying to clear your name without being able to show who the culprit is multiples the difficulty. What's your solution?
I think that the majority of the posters here may be simply missing the fact that the video was atrocious and demeaning to Huntsman (and to Paul for being connected to it even if just by mention) and that's also defamation of character. There is some injury there and usually you can make a claim against an injury. Paul was trying to clear his name as well as Huntsmans' to show that he didn't create or authorize the video. At least that would be my take on it.
