A federal appeals court has revived a defamation lawsuit against ABC News and former correspondent, John Stossel.
The Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals reinstated the suit filed by TV evangelist Dr. Frederick Price, finding that Price may be able to prove that his words in a 2007 “20/20″ report about politicians, businessmen, and religious leaders who appeared to be living lives of excess — were taken out of context.
“We remain confident that ABC News will ultimately prevail,” said senior vice president Jeffrey Schneider.
Reuters reports the case now goes back to the trial court.
