Ozzy Doc's Defamation Suit Against Post Dismissed
The New York Post dodged a bullet from Ozzy Osbourne's doctor, David Kipper. Courthouse News Service reports that a judge has dismissed a defamation suit against the Post on the grounds that, in condensing a Los Angeles Times dispatch, the paper inaccurately told readers that Kipper's license had been revoked by the California Medical Board in consequence of his overmedication of the Prince of Darkness during his time on the MTV show The Osbournes. The New York Court of Appeals found the Post absent malice and thus not liable. In a related story at Blabbermouth: " Ozzy Obsourne Says He Was Stoned Every Day While Filming 'The Osbournes.'"
