Burke Lawsuit Continues

from the Vancouver Sun,
Former Vancouver Canuck president and general manager Brian Burke has won the right to have his defamation suit against New York Post columnist Larry Brooks heard in B.C. Supreme Court. Burke is suing Brooks, who writes primarily on hockey, over an item that appeared on Feb. 27, 2005. The item concerned the Todd Bertuzzi-Steve Moore incident of March 8, 2004 in which Bertuzzi sucker-punched the Colorado Avalanche forward in a game at GM Place. The attack was in retaliation for a Moore hit on Canuck captain Markus Naslund three weeks earlier.
