Sakamonda is well-respected
Did Dave have attorney representation during the trial?

Not knowing the facts of the case, I can't comment whether this is a fair outcome or not. But I do know that in civil defamation cases, the burden of proof is on the defendant to show that a) the statements made were either true (the main defense against libel/defamation is truth) or were stated as expressed opinions. (Expressed opinions are by definition not libellous.)

But I will say that at first glance the lawyer that brought this case seems very sleazy.
