Bill Nagler’s lawsuit against Magic Magazine writer Brad Henderson for a negative review of his effect “Any Card at Any Number” has been dismissed from a Michigan court. Nagler had sought $100,000 in damages according the Detroit Free Press.

Judge Bernard Friedman ruled as follows…

…the review was Henderson’s opinion, not defamation, and was thus protected by the Constitution.

No word yet on if Nagler plans any future legals action on the case.

Thanks to reader Brian for the tip.
