Description

"Denying the Holocaust" by Deborah Lipstadt was originally published in the US in 1993 by The Free Press. It was published in paperback in the UK by Penguin books in 1994. David Irving first complained about the reference to him in the text in letter to Penguin Books during November 1995. He issued a writ claiming damages for libel in September 1996, naming Penguin, Profesor Lipstadt and four individual Waterstones's booksellers as defendants. The writ was in due course served on each of the defendants, although the action against the four booksellers was later dropped. In view of the complexities of the evidence, the parties agreed that the action should be tried by a judge alone and Mr Justice Gray was assigned the case. The trial opened in the High Court in London on Tuesday 11 January 2000 and closing speeches were heard on Wednesday 15 March 2000. Mr Justice Gray delivered his judgment in favour of the defendants on Tuesday 11 April 2000. This text docments the trial.show more
