Lawsuit of the Day: Morrissey v. NME
    • FRIDAY, OCTOBER 28, 2011

    Morose crooner Morrissey is being allowed to sue NME's publisher and former editor for libel following a 2007 interview that the former Smiths front man claims paints him as a racist. This week, a judge ruled that Morrissey had a "very serious" claim against the British publication. Due to the U.K.'s complex and stringent libel laws, this will be the first case heard in that country since 2009. Morrissey originally brought the suit to court in 2008 but chose not to move forward for what a judge has called a "credible" reason. The quote from the interview that Morrissey claims was taken out of context and has damaged his reputation is "the gates of England are flooded. The country's been thrown away... Although I don't have anything against people from other countries, the higher the influx into England the more the British identity disappears." This wasn't the last time that the singer got in trouble for making racist comments. Last year in an interview with The Guardian, he referred to the Chinese as a "subspecies." Oy.
