Iranian Group Loses Defamation Experts

WASHINGTON (CN) – A journalism professor and an economist cannot testify that an Arizona man defamed a nonprofit by writing articles that characterize it as an agent of the Iranian government, a federal judge ruled.

The National Iranian American Council and its president, Trita Parsi, tapped the experts for their lawsuit against Seid Hassan Daioleslam. They claim they were defamed by articles that Daioleslam wrote on and other websites.

“The thrust of plaintiffs’ complaint is that defendant ‘has published false and defamatory statements indicating that [plaintiffs are] member[s] of a subversive and illegal “are members of a subversive and illegal Iranian lobby colluding with the Islamic Republic of Iran,'” U.S. District Judge John Bates wrote, quoting the suit.
