$190 million. WOW

To be defamed, surely you must first be famous. This chap had his 15 minutes. What would the jury have decided if he had asked for Ford Mondeo money?

Quite so. Personally, I think he was poorly advised to take the action.

In the first place he couldn't show sufficient detriment to his reputation and secondly he was insulted rather that defamed. Open and shut case.

He didn't have a realistic chance of winning - regardless of who was in the dock or how much was being sought.
