Such was the case Thursday in a defamation suit brought by two law professors who claim West Publishing falsely identified them as the authors of a publication so poorly researched it would harm their reputations if it remained on library shelves. The professors lost their bid for an immediate injunction, but the judge seemed to declare the professors have proven some of their claims and in the end could be entitled to monetary damages.
