Wow what an interesting twist.

A mutual fund company sues left wing rats in charge of a company for enriching their pockets while $crewing the stockholders and mutual fund share owners.

To bad we don't have this law here!

"Tweedy Browne suing Hollinger

Top shareholder seeks legal fees

Investigated payments to Black

Hollinger International Inc. is facing a lawsuit from a New York investment firm that helped blow the whistle on millions in unauthorized payments made to Conrad Black, other executives and parent company Hollinger Inc. of Toronto.

Tweedy Browne Co. filed suit yesterday seeking reimbursement of legal fees its Global Value Fund incurred investigating possible wrongdoing at the company that owns London's Daily Telegraph, the Chicago Sun-Times and Jerusalem Post.

The lawsuit against Chicago-based Hollinger International was filed in Wilmington, Del., in the state's Chancery Court.

"Lord Black and his associates had been paying themselves many millions of dollars without proper disclosure,'' said the suit.

The suit asks for fees commensurate with "potential recovery of $31.55 million (U.S.)"

That's roughly the amount a special committee of Hollinger International is seeking from Black, other executives and Hollinger Inc.

What rich irony. A left wing RAT actually getting sued? What are our courts coming to?

England is contrary. In an English court of law, you are guilty until proven innocent, their daily newspapers are as prolific as dime store novels but their libel laws are much more stringent than ours. Liberace once collected after suing a British columnist for calling him gay. What else to expect from a land whose private schools are called public schools?
