The plaintiff sued the defendant publisher for an alleged malicious attack on him as the coach of the local high school football team. The newspaper article in question, after reciting several defeats suffered by the local aggregation, declared that the players were not well versed in the fundamentals of the game, that the system of plays furnished them was exceedingly antiquated, and that their latent ability had not been brought out by proper coaching. Held, judgment of non-suit reversed, as the plaintiff can recover on proof of express malice. Hoeppner v. Dunkirk Printing Co. (N. Y. 1930) 172 N.E. 139.
