ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the principles established by the ruling for a U.S. libel suit involving television actress Carol Burnett and the "National Enquirer." The ruling favored Burnett and was awarded $300,000 in general damages and an additional $1.3 million in punitive damages. It discusses the principles that resulted from the ruling which include the definition and protection of privacy of public personalities. It adds that very few journalists believe that the ruling will affect their work.
