BCA backs down in chiropractic libel suit against Simon Singh

The British Chiropractic Association has withdrawn its libel suit against Simon Singh, after a court ruled that Dr. Singh’s opinion in an opinion article in the Guardian was, in fact, an opinion. It’s interesting that the BCA went after only the individual and not the newspaper that published him. Simon Singh is a respected science writer. The BCA objected to his opinion that ignoring evidence and touting claims for which there was no good evidence was an invalid (or bogus) way to do medicine.
