“Truth is not always a defense”

So says Griffith J. Winthrop III, the lawyer for Orlando’s Chief of Police Val Demings, who is suing blogger Ezell “Easy” Harris[*1] , who is apparently highly critical of the Chief:

Winthrop would not elaborate on Demings’ claims or the logic behind them. He said he prefers to argue the matter in court.

“Truth is not always a defense,” Winthrop said. “I hope he [Harris] gets himself a really good lawyer,” he said.

Hm. Is the lawyer admitting that whatever Harris has written about the Chief is true? It seems so from this distant vantage point.
