France2 lose second al-Dura trial

France2 has lost the second al-Dura trial, though the grounds for the decision have nothing to do with the authenticity of the film.

Judging that France 2 did not provide proof for the allegation that Pierre Lurçat is the director of the site on which the incriminated statements were published [League de Défense Juïve], the court rejected the plaintiff’s case without further consideration.
I must confess that I have given little attention to this second trial on the assumption that it would be another stitch-up. Obviously, I was mistaken.
