Calabria. Lawyer requests damages to Inserra, the judge rejects it

It was established by the Civil Court of Cosenza. The journalist had been sued for an article from 2012 which reported of an investigation by the DDA in Reggio Calabria

On July 27, 2016 the Civil Court of Cosenza rejected the request for compensation for damages, filed in 2012, by the lawyer Lorenzo Gatto and his son Francesco, against the reporter of Quotidiano del Sud, Michele Inserra. The article had been published on 22 July 2011. In the text the journalist explained in detail a judicial investigation by the DDA in Reggio Calabria involving the lawyer, considered an influential figure within the political circles of the Calabrian left. Inserra was cited for 50 thousand euro in damages. For the judge the article did not reach an offense to the reputation of the applicants. The judge sentenced Gatto to pay 4 thousand euro in court costs. “This court case is an example of a trial that should never have existed in the first place. Among other things, justice has lost five years because Gatto was wrong repeatedly in providing documents for the complaint. All for a trial that was already quite clear.”
