A deputy sheriff sued a local newspaper for libel in connection with a news story about a fatal accident that occurred while the deputy was attempted to pull over a drunk driver. At issue were whether the statements in the article were libelous per se, whether the newspaper acted with "actual malice" thereby negating any protection from a retraction story.

The motion was granted and the case subsequently settled.
