CAIR Files Lawsuit Against Anti-CAIR Founder (press release):

On March, 31, 2004, the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) filed suit in the City of Virginia Beach, VA against Andrew Whitehead, one of the founders of Anti-Council on American Islamic Relations (ACAIR).
In the lawsuit, CAIR is suing for libel and has asked for One Million Dollars in compensatory damages and Three Hundred and Fifty Thousand Dollars in punitive damages. In addition, unspecified costs, attorney fees and interest are asked for. CAIR has requested a trial by jury.
ACAIR founder Andrew Whitehead issued the following statement:
“We believe that the truth is an absolute defense against a charge of defamation and we fully intend to vigorously defend ourselves against these charges. We look forward to having our day in court.”
Anti-CAIR intends to continue our mission of exposing CAIR�s connection to militant Islam.

CAIR, meet your own personal tar baby: ACAIR. Wonder what interesting stuff will turn up under oath?
