Tim Ball Wins in Libel Case

Timothy Birdnow

After seven long years Dr. Timothy Ball has finally won his case in the libel lawsuit filed by Andrew Weaver.

According to Climate Depot:

"Great news (though how low is our bar, that it’s "great” that after seven long expensive years Tim Ball can speak freely?). As reported on WUWT: Tim Ball’s free-speech victory over Andrew Weaver – all charges dismissed! Anthony Watts: I got word tonight from David Ball, son of Dr. Tim Ball via Facebook messenger: This morning the judge dismissed all charges in the lawsuit brought against Tim by BC Green Party leader Andrew Weaver. It is a great victory for free speech. Andrew Weaver launched the suit in 2011. In 2014 Ezra Levant’s wrote: "Silencing Critics instead of debating them” Weaver sued climatologist Dr. Tim Ball for, amongst other things, saying Weaver was "lacking a basic understanding of climate science,” according to a glowing New York Times article, cheering on his SLAPP suit. Seriously? Suing someone, in a court of law, for saying you don’t understand global warming? This from a scholar, an academic, a teacher? And now a politician – an opposition politician, no less. Weaver is now a Green Party MLA in British Columbia, someone who hurls insults as part of his job description. That’s not what true academics do."

End excerpt.

Weaver should be made to pay all expenses on this; this was a consciously thought-out strategy to intimidate people who damage the high religion of Global Warming. There have been innumerable lawsuits filed against such people as Ball, Mark Steyne, and a host of others for opposing the drive to environmental imperium by the Gang Green. Weaver has finally withdrawn, but he and his co-conspirators are far from done.
