It’s been a bad week for…

Kamlesh Bahl (when is it ever a good week for her?). The fallout from the Demon verdict reached Bahl’s website when her service provider shut down her site after a complaint that it contained defamatory comments. The site contained legal opinions from Cherie Booth who concluded that the Law Society’s investigations were open to legal challenge. The Law Society denied that it was responsible for the complaint.

Outcast the “queer current affairs” magazine, which also saw its site shut down in the wake of panic by internet service providers (ISPs) that they could face the same libel suits as Demon. After a complaint and a legal letter by another gay magazine, the Pink Paper, the ISP Netbenefit pulled the plug on the site. Netbenefit’s managing director said that the Demon case had “far-reaching implications”.
