Defamation - Slander
Drew Brown sued Fox News Network, LLC in 2007 on behalf of a former teacher who was incorrectly pictured on the front page of FoxNews.com as having married his 16 year old former student. The national story arose out of Wilmington where a 40 year old teacher/coach actually had married a 16 year old student. Fox News simply had superimposed the wrong teacher pictured next to the 16 year old. Brown represented the wrongfully accused teacher on libel and punitive damage claims and brought suit in Guilford County against Fox News. Fox News subsequently removed the case to federal court. The case settled confidentially.
