Catholic League president Bill Donohue comments on a lawsuit brought against him and the Catholic League:

At every step of the way, a lawsuit filed by Rebecca Randles against me and the Catholic League was knocked down by the courts. I never libeled anyone, and she knows it. She lost in the U.S. District Court, and then lost again in the 8th Circuit Court of Appeals. She wisely decided not to appeal her bogus lawsuit to the U.S. Supreme Court, though it would have been fun to watch her lose again.

Randles tried to silence me, and she failed. She should have known better.

Her penchant for misleading the public goes way beyond me. For example, her bio, listed on her website, says she is a “trustee for Southweat Baptist University.” (My italics.) There is no such school.

Many thanks to Erin Mersino for representing us—she did a splendid job. Thanks, too, to Richard Thompson, president of the Thomas More Law Center, for accepting this case. They are two committed Catholics, persons whose courage is matched only by their brilliance.
