Irving verdict near; he files new suit

By Sharon Sadeh

LONDON - The libel case brought by British historian David Irving against 
American historian Deborah Lipstadt and Penguin is nearing its end. The 
court is set to rule on the case on Tuesday. But Irving has filed another 
libel suit, this time against veteran British journalist Gita Sereny and 
the publishers of the Guardian and Observer newspapers. Sereny reviewed 
Irving's book "Goebbels: The Mastermind of the Third Reich" for the 
Observer in 1996. Irving claims that the article merely masqueraded as a 
book review, but in reality, Sereny's goal was to defame him.
