Top ten legal battles - Morrissey v the NME

Feb 17, 2020, 07:00 AM
It’s the fifth in our series of special editions of Setlist looking at some of our favourite music industry legal battles of all time. CMU’s Andy Malt and Chris Cooke discuss the libel proceedings Morrissey launched against the NME in 2011, four years after the magazine published an article he claimed called him racist. But with an album and plenty of tour dates under his belt in the interim, could he claim that his reputation had been damaged? Setlist is sponsored by 7digital.
