Sindi v. El-Moslimany , 16-2347

Affirmed in part and reversed in part in a defamation case where a scientist accused two women of falsely alleging that she was an academic and scientific fraud in an internet posting. Plaintiff had prevailed at trial and on appeal, the First Circuit affirmed the judgment in most respects, but held that the district court should not have issued an injunction barring the two women from making further defamatory statements because this imposed a prior restraint on speech. The appeals court therefore vacated the post-trial injunction.
