Broadbent’s Revenge

Loyal reader(s?) may remember my review of the book The Billionaire’s Vinegar.  As a follow up to the story I saw that the venerable British wine critic Micheal Broadbent settled his libel and defamation suit against Random House, the publisher of the book.  The book was less than flattering to Mr. Broadbent.  The amount of the monetary settlement is undisclosed,  but Random House issued an apology and has agreed not to distribute the book any more in the United Kingdom.  The New York Times story can be found here.  Decanter (which he writes for) had a different take on it but did say that he was going to celebrate with a magnum of 1990 Mouton while pondering whether to seek an injunction about the film based on the book.
