SPLC Settles Defamation Lawsuit for $3.3 Million

Some cash-money consequences for the defamation factory SPLC.

The Southern Poverty Law Center has made an apology and agreed to a $3.3 million settlement in a lawsuit over its "Field Guide to Anti-Muslim Extremists." When the Field Guide was published in 2016 it included the name of Maajid Nawaz, a British Muslim who runs the Quilliam Foundation.


The SPLC posted a video apology on its own site.... The apology says in part, "Since we published the Field Guide, we have taken the time to do more research…" Yes, lawsuits have a funny way of making people do more research.
