The Ramseys have sued numerous media outlets in the past 14 years so I thought we could take a look at these court cases to see if they reveal anything about JonBenet's murder. My school has a newspaper archive so I'm looking at old articles about the lawsuits. I'm not allowed to copy and paste the articles here so I'll just paraphrase. 1.) John and Patsy sued Time.com and their parent company, Time Warner, for the headline, "Extra: Tabloid solves JonBenet Case! Star magazine reports that police now think the brother did it. Don't laugh." The case was settled out of court. 2.) John and Patsy sued The Globe for $35 million for saying that Burke Ramsey killed JonBenet. The case was settled out of court. 3.) John and Patsy sued Star Magazine for $25 million for saying that Burke killed JonBenet. Star planned on going to court against the Ramseys so they could question them under oath. The tabloid's attorney commented that he was looking forward the cross-examing the Ramseys. The lawsuit was settled out of the court. 4.) John and Patsy sued the NY Post for $4 million for saying Burke was a suspect in JonBenet's murder. The headline was, "JonBenet Bombshell Report: Jealous brother eyed in her killing." Because of the lawsuit, the NY Post was allowed access to investigation files about Burke. 5.) John and Patsy sued the publishers of the book, "A Little Girl's Dream? A JonBenet Ramsey Story," for saying Burke killed his sister. 6.) Chris Wolf sued John and Patsy for $50 million for defamation because they named him as a possible suspect in their book DOI. His lawyer said he plans on cross-examining the Ramseys under oath. 7.) Linda Hoffmann Pugh also sued the Ramseys for $50 million for naming her a suspect in their book. The case was dismissed. 8.) John and Patsy sued Steve Thomas for $80 million for making false accusations about Patsy in his book. Thomas said he looked forward to putting Patsy on trial. The case was settled out of court and Thomas said he never paid a cent. 9.) John and Patsy sued Court TV for a documentary they ran that said John, Patsy, Burke, and an unknown intruder were all suspects in the case. 10.) John and Patsy sued Fox News for $12 million for the statement, "There has never been any evidence to link an intruder to her brutal murder." The case was dismissed. 11.) A Georgia man sued the Ramseys for unpaid reward money since they claimed they would pay whoever knew who killed their daughter 100k dollars. He knew the answer: They did. The case was dismissed. What does everyone make of these lawsuits? I noticed in a few of them, the lawyers for the defendants said that they were looking forward to taking the Ramseys to court. Is there a reason why none of the libel suits saw the inside of a courtroom?
