Liberia: U.S. Court Dismisses Defamation Case Against Henry Costa

Henry Costa
The Associate Judge of the Superior Court of the District of Columbia Civil Division has quashed charges levied against Liberian radio talk show host Henry Costa.
The judge's decision followed a motion to dismiss filed by Eric Menhart, legal Counsel representing Costa.
