Responsible communications: the lawyers weigh in

The Law Times has a good comment on the recent Supreme Court decision on defamation and the defense of responsible communications, certainly more thoughtful than most of the responses to the news story that demanded that journalists be 100 per cent right 100 per cent of the time, an impossible bar for anyone to reach. The Times is asking for more clarity on some issues, but I like the notion of the SCC leaving most of the clarity to be determined by judges and juries on a case by case basis.
