(Forest Park Review) Chris Welch, of the District 209 school board, and his brother Bill Welch have each filed $1 million lawsuits charging defamation against local blogger Carl Nyberg in response to allegations made by Nyberg on his "Proviso Probe" web blog...
The suits, brought by Chris Welch's law firm, James J. Roche and Associates, point to postings in which Nyberg calls Chris Welch a "liar" and implies that he is an unethical attorney. The suits also refer to postings in which Nyberg states that Bill Welch was indicted on criminal charges in 2003.
Editor's note: Apparently this appears to be one of those "he said, blog said" cases, involving a legal discussion on matters this blogger would rather not analyze. Perhaps someone else with a passion for the law (i.e. Glenn Reynolds or someone just as bright) would care to give their opinion on this matter.
