UFW v. LAT

United Farm Workers has formally demanded that the LAT retract various claims in its recent multi-part story about alleged corruption among UFW officials. This action, as media-watchers know, is a necessary precondition for a libel suit, although the ratio of retraction demands to actual suits is something like 1332:1.

We thought the UFW series was pretty persuasive, but of course we don’t have sufficient knowledge of union history or politics to evaluate UFW’s counter-claims. So if you have six hours or so to spare, read it all and decide for yourself.
