I didn't realize that US citizens were being sued in the UK in libel suits because it was much easier to win there. Not always by UK citizens but people from other countries because it was so much easier to prove libel even possibly in their own country. I can see why certain works wouldn't be published there. I'm glad Rachel's Law was passed to stop this. If they want to sue a US citizen they need to come here to do it.NPR said:As with many other works of investigative journalism, publishing Going Clear in the U.K. could expose the authors to a much more serious risk of lawsuits than they face in the U.S.
On Libel And The Law, U.S. And U.K. Go Separate Ways
The UK has changed their laws somewhat to make it more difficult to win a libel case but its still easier there.
