In brief: Business guru sues magazine for libel

Anthony Robbins, the US “personal success” coach to a string of celebrities, is suing Business Age magazine for libel over stories it ran about him in its last two editions. Robbins' solicitors, Davies Arnold Cooper, has issued a writ claiming aggravated damages against the editor, author and publishers. Senior partner David McIntosh says the stories suggested Robbins, whose work has been linked with Bill Clinton and Princess Diana, was “guilty of fraud and misappropriation of funds”. The firm says there is “strong evidence of malice” in the magazine's motivation. It is seeking an injunction to prevent further publication.
