Boston Marathon Bombing Victim Sues Glenn Beck For Defamation

Boston Marathon Bombing Victim Sues Glenn Beck For Defamation: by CATHERINE THOMPSON – APRIL 1, 2014, 7:35 AM EDT296 

"A man who was injured in the Boston Marathon bombings is suing Glenn Beck and his network for defamation after the radio host allegedly called him a suspect, Boston Magazine reported Monday.

Abdulrahman Alharbi, a Saudi Arabian student who lives in the Boston area, sustained minor injuries in the attacks and had his apartment searched by authorities in connection with the bombings. Alharbi argued that Beck and the company that carries his show, The Blaze, continued to implicate him as a suspect after he was cleared of any wrongdoing, according to court documents obtained by Boston Magazine.

“Beck repeatedly and falsely identified Mr. Alharbi as an active participant, repeatedly questioned the motives of federal officials in failing to pursue or detain Alharbi and repeatedly and falsely accused Mr. Alharbi of being a criminal who had funded the attacks," the lawsuit, filed Friday in U.S. district court in Massachusetts, read."
