I note a few points from the decision:
$2.7 million in damages plus interest and $1 million in attorney fees for Steyn, his co-defendant/co-counterclaimant Mark Steyn Enterprises (MSE), and his co-counterclaimant Oak Hill Media (CRTV sued Steyn and Steyn-owned MSE, but Steyn, MSE, and his part-owned company Oak Hill Media counterclaimed against both CRTV and its principal Cary Katz).
The decision describes Steyn as a bit of a diva. P. 9, penultimate para.
The decision states: “having spent a great deal of money defending a libel suit, Steyn needed money.” P. 2, 5th para. Here’s hoping Steyn ultimately sends a hockey stick upstream through Mann’s alimentary canal.
Both parties blame Rikki Ratliff for the delays in getting the Steyn show up and running. P. 6, 5th para. through p. 7., 2nd para. She was recommended by Steyn and hired by CRTV and continues to work at CRTV.
