As you’ve probably already heard, the British Chiropractic Association has dropped its court case against Simon Singh following the overturning on appeal of the previous ruling against him, marking the end of an expensive and mostly pointless legal battle. Mostly pointless, because it has at least served to focus national attention on Britain’s hideously illiberal and outdated libel laws; it was only earlier this week at Westminster Skeptics in the Pub that MPs from all three major parties were present to pledge their support for libel reform.

The battle is over, though the war continues. And thanks to the BCA’s poorly-considered legal action, the smart money is on our side.
