National Coalition Against Censorship Joins Groups Opposing LA Times in Ted Rall Lawsuit

Thanks also to the National Coalition Against Censorship for filing an Amicus Letter on my side with the California Supreme Court as I defend myself against the LA Times and its billionaire owner, which are trying to bankrupt me because I criticized their close political ally and former business partner, the LAPD.


  • glad to see some of these groups finally coming out to support you. good luck. 🙂

  • +1 for using the word “impecunious” when comparing an artist to a corporation.

    • I also reacted to that use of the term, Andreas. If that’s the standard, I’d like to see a «pecunious» cartoonist – not even Leonardo would qualify….



    errr, I meant “Thank you”

    Why do I think they’re just covering their asses? “Oh, look, we were on Ted’s side, when it was so goddamned late the poor sonofabitch that it made almost no difference.”

    Ted, I really hope you get your day in court. But I’m afearin’ that this is the usual finishing touch from the cowards who should have come forward a lot sooner.

    • Alex, I feel your pain. Because it’s my pain! Part of the problem was that, at the lower court level, a full-fledged amicus brief (which costs $10K to draft) was required. The Supreme Court prefers a letter.
