ADL Wins Payment from Larouche

Download PDF for this date

The Anti-Defamation League of B’nai B’rith has received a check for $1,178.86 from Lyndon LaRouche — a court-ordered payment to cover out-of-pocket expenses incurred by ADL during the political extremist’s failed libel suit against the agency, the ADL announced Monday. The order to pay came from the Virginia District Court, which rejected LaRouche’s claim that he was defamed when described as an “anti-Semite” and a “smalltime Hitler” by an ADL official on the NBC-TV program “First Camera” in March 1984.
