LIABILITY OF PUBLISHERS.
A decision rendered this morning- by
Judge 12. C. Minor, In the Law and
Equity Court, will be of Interest to the
publishers of newspapers especially.
The J. L Hill Printing Company,
publishers of the City Directory, were
sued by Dr. Susan A. Hoope for $2,000
damages for libel in designating her in
tho directory as a "midwife."
The declaration alleged that on ac?
count of such publication Dr. Roope hud
been greatly prejudiced In her credit
and reputation as a physician, because
the public were led lo think thnt her
practice was limited to obstetrics, and
because the term "midwife" is con?
strued by the public generally ns con?
veying an Idea not altogether compli?
Messrs. Henry R. and John Garland
Pollard, representing the defendant, de?
murred to the declaration on the ground
?that the publication complained of was
not libellous. The court sustained the
demurrer and the case was withheld
from the jury.
The eltect of the decision Is that In
such cases the publishers of directories
a\% not. as a matter of law, liable. The
J. I? Hill Printing Company are very
particular in gathering the data for
their directories. Their canvassers go
from door to door to gather the Infor?
mation published. In a book contain?
ing many thousand names some mis?
takes naturally creep in.
