PDN GETS IT RIGHT

In titling the story "Libel claims against Archbishop Apuron remain, slander dismissed," the PDN got the real story right. 

The real story is "Libel claims against Apuron remain.

In fact, at least from the PDN story, it appears that even the slander portion of the suit was dismissed only under a technicality and not because there was no slander committed:

"Accordingly, because plaintiffs failed to plead special damages, Plaintiffs have failed to state a claim upon which relief can be granted," the judge wrote. "Therefore, the court holds that dismissal of the slander claim is appropriate."
