Anti-Cult campaigner wins second Guardian libel action

January 2002

Graham Baldwin, director of Catalyst, a charity that specialises in therapy for victims of religious cults and similar groups, won substantial damages in an out-of-court settlement against The Guardian and its editor, Alan Rusbridger. The action follows an earlier libel victory for Mr Baldwin in November 1998. The following day The Guardian published an article on the case including statements by Mr Rusbridger, which Mr Baldwin contended repeated the defamatory allegations.
