State Senator Joe Leibham to not seek recount for last week's election

SHEBOYGAN, WI (WHBL) - Joe Leibham will not seek a recount for last week's 6th House District Republican primary. The Sheboygan state senator lost the four man race to State Senator Glenn Grothman by 219 votes, which was close enough to ask for a recount that would have been paid for by local government units. In a statement made Friday afternoon, Leibham said he has contacted Grothman about his decision and wished him well in the November general election.  He adds he is happy of the ...

Publishing executives fire back at Tom Cruise defamation lawsuit

From WENN.com

The Hollywood superstar launched a $50 million (£31.3 million) defamation lawsuit against Bauer Publishing Co. in October (12) after taking issue with an article printed in Life & Style magazine about his six-year-old girl.

Cruise vehemently refuted claims and blasted editors for allegedly making false statements about his relationship with the tot, his only child with Holmes, who he split from in late June (12).

At the time, his lawyer Bert Fields said, ""Tom is a caring father who dearly loves Suri. She's a vital part of his life and always will be. To say he has 'abandoned' her is a vicious lie. To say it in lurid headlines with a tearful picture of Suri is reprehensible.

""Tom doesn't go around suing people. He's not a litigious guy. But when these sleaze peddlers try to make money with disgusting lies about his relationship with his child, you bet he's going to sue.""

However, Bauer bosses have defended their Life & Style writers and have fired back at the lawsuit in the U.S. District Court in California on Friday (14Dec12).

In documents obtained by TheWrap.com, executives for the German-owned firm claim they are not liable for damages because ""some or all of the allegedly defamatory statements complained of by the plaintiff are true or substantially true"".

The papers go on to state that the actor ""cannot prove that he has suffered any compensable damage as a result of any actionable statement published by the Bauer Defendants"", and insist ""the Bauer Defendants did not act with actual malice"".

If the Mission: Impossible star wins the suit, Cruise plans on donating the money to charity.
