Redskins owner to refile lawsuit against City Paper
Dan Snyder says his libel suit needed to be refiled in Washington, not New York, for legal reasons. In explaining why he's suing Washington City Paper, Snyder says "this writer" -- he never names Dave McKenna -- "chose not to call to check the facts before he wrote an article last November that contained so many false assertions." He goes on:
I am not thin-skinned about personal criticism. I consider myself very fortunate to own the Redskins. Criticism comes with the territory and I respect it. I have never sued people who publish critical opinions of me, nor have I previously sued any news organization.
