El Naschie loses libel suit against Nature

A British court has just ruled against Mohammed El Naschie in his libel case against Nature. To quote from the decision:

My conclusions are that the article is substantially true … and that it was the product of responsible journalism.

To my mind, this basically finishes the story of El Naschie the man, but does not conclude the question of how such a journal was allowed to remain at Elsevier for so long.

Past El Naschie threads have been unpleasant and unproductive, so I’m leaving comments closed on this one. Thanks to Mike Usher at Math 2.0 for making me aware of this news.
