Daily Mail sued

A woman who claims she was libelled in a Daily Mail story has launched a legal battle for compensation of up to £100,000.

Helen Green is suing publishers Associated Newspapers over a story headed: "Children told to copy lines from Muslim Call to prayer – to practice their handwriting".

She claims the story, and readers' comments, published on the paper's website were defamatory, and is demanding damages and an injunction banning repetition of the allegations at the centre of her claim.

She is not suing because she thinks the Daily Mail got the story wrong. She is suing because she received a dose of reality and now she doesn’t want anyone else talking about the story. I think the blogs which haven’t already talked about the story should start talking about it and show this woman where to go.
