Britt Hermes finally prevails
« on: June 04, 2019, 03:49:00 PM »
I just received the wonderful news from Britt Hermes: "On May 24, 2019, the District Court (Landgericht) of Kiel, Germany ruled against naturopathic cancer quack Colleen Huber in a defamation lawsuit she brought against me."

Donations were able to cover all her legal costs.

For those who don't know Britt Hermes is an ex-naturopath who was a guest on SGU #647.

Is there a German version of anti-SLAPP? Didn't see anything like that, although there was some discussion of recouping court fees in the comments.

That's great news. I've used articles she's written to make several friends and coworkers aware of the reality behind naturopaths.

Yep, it's GREAT to see her courage coming through again.  Takes guts to not only recognize the faulty profession she invested heavily in but to turn on it.  Now she took on the legal risk of fighting Huber and won.   I'm glad the skeptical community came through for her by contributing to the legal defense fund the Australian Skeptics set up.

I'm really disappointed that the skeptical blogs (SBM, Neurologica, Respectful Insolence) haven't spread this Good News!  Hopefully, we'll hear from her on a podcast in the not too distant future.

I'd be surprised if SGU and Skeptic Zone don't get her back on soon.
