There was similar trial in Poland, but this time homoeostasis were involved. They sued professor of medicine Andrzej Gregosiewicz for publishing a report in which he was proving that homoeopathy is a fraud and nothing more than placebo. The result of first trial came as an unpleasant surprise, prof. Gregosiewicz lost in court and was obliged to run a correction in media. It was a big news in tv and papers: Alternative medicine is better than regular one! Court says so!
Professor of course lodged an appeal and won second trial, jury admitted that homoeopathy isn't medicine at all, and guess what? No one has written about it, there's been no tv interviews and so on. Sad thing, but at least it begun some discussion about homoeopathy and alternative way of treatment in physicians circle.
