“Their defence claims that Warman’s reputation hasn’t suffered at all, and if it did, their apologies have made up for that — apologies that the Post notes were approved by Warman’s lawyer. The Post takes on Warman in his essence: a hyper-litigious, thin-skinned complainer-of-fortune. Look at paragraph 22 of their defence:
the damages or loss claimed are excessive, exaggerated, remote, unrecognized at law, unmitigated by the Plaintiff, and unconnected with any alleged act or omission on its part, and puts the Plaintiff to strict proof thereof.
“In other words, the Post is calling Warman’s bluff.
“They’re done apologizing. They didn’t want a fight; they did everything reasonable to avoid one, even swallowing their pride and accepting Warman’s incredible denials at face value. But now that Warman’s suing, they’re fighting back.
“Warman added the Post to his suit because he thought they’d be a soft touch with deep pockets. But now they’re coming at him for full costs. I think they’ll get it, too.”
