JUDGE COOPER SCORES POINT
The old feud between Judge Wm.
Fenimore Cooper and the Hearst pa
pers was fanned into a new blaze
Thursday when the appellate court
decided in favor of the judge in the
libel proceedings he has been push
ing against the Examiner. The ap
pellate court reversed a decision of
Judge Tuthill of the circuit court
that the Examiner had the right to
criticize Judge Cooper as it did.
The higher court, however, held
that a newspaper did have the right
to criticize public officials on the
strength of truthful facts.
The decision reads in part: "The
right to make and publish reasonable
comment and criticism, however,
does not extend so far as to permit
false statement of facts."
The case will now go back to tha
circuit court for- trial.
