    JonBenet's brother files defamation suit against pathologist
    October 6, 2016

    Snipped...
    ...Spitz made this accusation without ever examining JonBenet's body, without viewing the crime scene, and without consulting with the pathologist who performed the autopsy on JonBenet," the complaint filed in Wayne County Circuit Court in Detroit says.

    What would BR be suing for? I would imagine legally it would come under a Libel/Defamation civil suit? If that is the case then i think BR has to prove how Spitz damaged BR by taking part in the CBS production? I really don't see how that would work for BR because a lot of the public already think the R's had something to do with JBR's murder, and there has already been much speculation on public forums about BR doing the striking JBR on the head because he was angry at her. Spitz only gave his professional opinion about what he thought caused the head injury and how that would of affected JBR in the aftermath of such a serious skull fracture. I don't recall Spitz stating that BR was the one that struck JBR on the head, but the show demonstrated how a child could also inflict such an injury with the heavy maglite torch.

    I think only suing the doctor because in the demonstration shown of the boy striking the skull. He brought it too close to home. Plus the flashlight had been wiped clean inside and out which to me spoke volumes.
    It will be interesting how this all plays out in a court of law. Now people will have to testify including BR and JR.

    The only thing I can think of, as to why Spitz and not the others, is that Spitz didn't see eye to eye with the others over the bash over the head being accidental.

    But his words are hardly defamatory, he hasn't leveled an accusation against Burke, all he has said and demonstrated is that it was within the capabilities of a child, and his words "I cannot see anybody, even a child..." means it is not directed at Burke, but anyone taking a heavy object to a child's head.

    Here's the extract I'm talking about (credit to PositiveLight for the transcript)

    "Kolar- "My hypothesis was that I think the Ramsey's came home around 9:30-10:00. I think JonBenet
    was asleep and I think John did carry her upstairs. Patsy remained downstairs with Burke and
    served him with tea and the pineapple. I think that accounts for the physical evidence as well as the
    latent prints. Then I think she got JonBenet up to make sure she used the toilet so she didn't
    wet the bed that night. JonBenet was up, she may or may not have brushed her teeth, that stuff was
    out on the counter and then I think she was up and awake enough that maybe was still hungry
    and she went downstairs in the meantime Patsy continued packing for the Michigan trip. I think
    Burke was upset about circumstances of Christmas presents he probably would have been upset
    about her trying to snag a piece of pineapple, out of anger he may have struck her with that
    flashlight."
    Dr. Spitz- "I think we already agree on that."
    Clemente- "Yes."
    Fitzgerald- "Yes."
    Laura- "Absolutely."
    Dr. Lee- "Sure. Yeah, I agree with that. However I think it's not the intentional murder. "
    Clemente- "I agree there's no evidence to support it."
    Stan Burke- "So you don't think there was no malice of forethought. Something happened to cause that?"
    Dr. Lee- "Spur of the moment or something like that."
    Clemente- "Or accidental death. It doesn't have to necessarily be a murder."
    Dr. Spitz- "How can it be an accidental death? I cannot see anybody, even a child, taking a heavy
    object like a flashlight and hitting it on somebody's head as an accident."

    Clemente- "Maybe in anger he swung it faster than he thought he would. We're talking about a
    10 year old who by the way, who had hit the same person in the head with a golfclub. And what
    happened?"
    Dr. Spitz- "Nothing happened."
    Clemente- "Nothing happened."

    Is he suing over the CBS special though? I read that it is over a radio interview where Spitz actually said that BR bludgeoned her to death.

    And we already know what kind of witness BR will make, with his shifty eyes and smirky smile.

    You're right. Thank you. It's what he said on CBS Detroit on 19th Sept.

    Also interesting is this excerpt from the lawsuit "The CBS docuseries and Defendant Spitz's participation in it will be the subject of separate defamation litigation to be filed in the near future in Los Angeles, California."

    Dr. Spitz told CBS Detroit:

    “If you really, really use your free time to think about this case, you cannot come to a different conclusion. It’s the boy (Burke Ramsey) who did it (murdered JonBenet), whether he was jealous, or mentally unfit or something.. I don’t know the why. I’m not a psychiatrist, but what I am sure about is what I know about him, that is what happened here. And the parents changed the scene to make it look like something it wasn’t.”
