BizNews — On Rational Radio this week, SA's pre-eminent media lawyer Dario Milo spoke about the recent mushrooming of libel cases including Independent Newspapers chairman Iqbal Surve's R100m suit against former activist and labour journalist Terry Bell. Milo, who is usually on the side of media defendants, successfully represented SA's former finance minister Trevor Manuel in his record R500 000 defamation award against the EFF. Apart from practicing as a director of Webber Wentzel, Milo is also the author of the definitive book on SA defamation law.
