A New Jersey court last week tossed out one of the two defamation lawsuits filed by the Indian National Overseas Congress (INOC) seeking $100 million in damages from individuals and non-profits for allegedly defaming Congress party president Sonia Gandhi. The court said the INOC does not have the right to seek damages. A decision on the other identical lawsuit filed by the INOC – but in a New York court and against different individuals – is pending.
The defendants hailed Judge Patricia DelBueno Cleary of New Jersey's Monmouth County Superior Court's dismissal of the much-publicized lawsuit as a measure of the fairness of the American judicial system. Satyanarayana Dosapati, a defendant along with Naresh Sharma, Sunanda Thali, the Mahatma Gandhi Center and Hindu Temple and others, told India Abroad that he believed the ruling by the New Jersey court would positively impact the case in New York, because the charges are similar.
"We are very happy that justice is done. It has been trying at times, but we had complete faith in the American judicial system. We hope that this will encourage all Indians across the world to come out openly and speak the truth," Dosapati said.
Marc Haefner, attorney for the defendants, told India Abroad that he hoped "the New Jersey's court's decision to protect individuals who with to exercise their rights to free speech without being harassed by foreign political parties will serve as an example to the New York court when it takes this issue up at the beginning of October."

- Hindus in US fight for defamation case filed by Sonia supporters by Lalit K Jha on June 27, 2008
Number of Hindus, comprising of mostly anti-Sonia Gandhi supporters, filled up a temple auditorium in Flushing, New York, to raise funds to fight out the $ 100 million defamation case filed against two of their community leaders by Indian National Overseas Congress (INOC).
The INOC in a $100 million libel lawsuit filed against – Narain Kataria and Arish Sahni – in a New York court have alleged that these two have defamed their Sonia Gandhi, the UPA Chairperson, by levying baseless and incorrect allegations against her through a full page advertisement published in The New York Time on October 6, 2007.
Both Kataria and Sahani, who maintain that they stand by their allegations as everything they published has been a matter of public record, had appealed to the Hindus in the US to help them fight the libel lawsuit as they did not had enough money to pay for attorney and other associated fees.
Organizers of the fund raiser, though, did not divulge details of the money raised during the event held at the Hindu Temple, Flushing, those close to it did concede thousands of dollars have been collected in the name of Hindu Support Fund; which has been created for the purpose.

A New Jersey court has dismissed a defamation suit filed by a US-based group seeking 100 million dollars from several parties for allegedly maligning Congress President Sonia Gandhi during her visit here last year, saying the outfit has no locus standi to claim damages.
The defendants' lawyer Marc D Haefner said the judge yesterday held that INOC
was not the proper party and did not have the locus standi to bring a claim of
defamation because none of the statements were of or about it.
