Dan Snyder's lawsuit

Coach vs. reporter

Friday, February 4, 2011

The Redskins' owner created a stir when he filed a lawsuit this week. What's it all about?

Washington Redskins owner Dan Snyder filed a lawsuit against City Paper and its parent company, Atalaya Capital Management, in state court in New York.

Snyder alleges in the suit that City Paper libeled and defamed him in a series of articles, and he's seeking $2 million in damages plus unspecified punitive damages. Oh, and court costs.

You can read the details of the entire lawsuit - including the accusations of publication of "an anti-Semitic caricature" - on PostLocal. Go to wpo.st/x5W2.
