A British author has won the right to defend himself against libel by arguing that an article he wrote about chiropracty for the website of the British newspaper The Guardian was fair comment. Simon Singh wrote that the British Chiropractic Association were "happily promoting bogus treatments" by claiming that chiropracty could treat children with athsma, sleeping and feeding disorders and colic. Singh was then sued by the BCA. A court ruled in May 2009 that the word "bogus" meant Singh had claimed the BCA was deliberately lying. If that decision had stood, he would have had to prove the BCA were lying or he would lose. However the decision has been overturned, meaning he is likely to win his case.
