A U.K. court today ruled against Harrods in its silly Loof Lirpa defamation case against the Wall Street Journal. That is a good thing, of course, but Harrods comes off awfully badly.
First, it is obvious Al Fayed can tell a joke, but he can’t take one. While that is bad enough, Harrods is also saddled with $960,000 in legal bills. It is a sizable price to pay for not knowing when to laugh.
