Headliners; Full Court Press
Lee Kuan Yew, the former prime minister of Singapore, seems to have convinced Dow Jones & Co. that athletics is not the only undertaking that involves a home court advantage. Back in 1987, Mr. Lee didnt like something he read in Dow Joness Far Eastern Economic Review. He sued for libel in Singapore and was awarded a judgment in 1989. Dow Jones appealed, and Mr. Lee cross appealed. Then Peter K. Kann, the president of Dow Jones, issued a statement asserting that the judgment was unwarranted. Mr. Lee said he took this to mean that Mr. Kann was accusing him of improperly influencing the trial judge, and he promptly filed three more libel suits against Dow Jones publications in Malaysian and Singaporean courts. Last week, Dow Jones threw in the towel. Mr. Kann issued a statement saying he never meant to defame Mr. Lee in any way. Mr. Lee dropped his pending libel suits, Dow Jones dropped its appeal, the original judgment stands, and Dow Jones will pay Mr. Lees legal fees.
