Update on Al-Durah Affair: there was a case won by the good guys

There is good news regarding the Al-Durah case, as told in this article on Media Ratings, which I'll translate:
Al Doura Affair: first defeat for the Enderlin-France 2 team, which will probably not be the last...

Posted online December 1, 2006

On October 19, 2006, Media-Ratings was condemned for slander against France 2 and Charles Enderlin. We obviously called this court decision “astonishing”.

On November 28, 2006, the libel suit of France2 and Charles Enderlin against Pierre Lurçat was found to be unfounded. He was admirably defended by David Dassa Deist (dassavocat@yahoo.fr).

Curiously, this defeat of the public utility [France2] was mentioned in no French media whereas our judgment had been widely covered. This Thursday November 30, 2006, the third lawsuit brought by the Enderlin-France 2 team, within the framework of the Al Doura Affair, took place.

This time, it was a physician who was sued for slander for having reproduced on his site – desinfos.com – a dispatch from the MENA [Metulla News Agency].

The plaintiffs were represented by their lawyer, Bénédicte Amblard, whose attacks were cut in pieces by the demands of the Procureur and the remarkable advocacy of Aude Weill-Raynal.

France2 did not provide the 27 minutes of footage which are supposed to prove the network's version.

Charles Enderlin was not present in court whereas he had been in Paris the day before the trial (France-Inter with 16h30, RTL with 18h). It is true that it's less risky for him to express himself in the obliging media than within the courtroom.

The absences of Charles Enderlin and 27 minutes of rushes were missed, so much by the Procureur who demanded their release, as well as by the by the lawyer for the defendant.

The judgement will be given on January 18, 2007. Taking into account the content of the debates, demands by the Procureur and pleadings of the lawyers, there is no doubt that the Court will release the director of the publication of desinfos.com.
Enderlin must be starting to realize he's done himself more harm than good. He's only brought attention to himself!
