Larry Klayman, a lawyer who claimed he'd been defamed by City Pages, lost his case in a recent ruling by a Florida federal judge.
Quoting frequently from Alice in Wonderland, U.S. District Judge Anne Conway concluded in her 34-page decision that Klayman's case failed to meet legal standards and therefore was dismissed. Klayman has filed notice of appeal.
Klayman, who had made the news for advocated that President Obama wasn't born in the United States, sued City Pages and its sister paper, Phoenix New Times, claiming both made defamatory statements about him.
Conway granted summary judgment to the defendants in her April 3 ruling.
