      How does the law address a situation where the libel appears to be the
      result (in whole or in part) of imprecations from the plaintiff's own mouth?
      He
      did not libel himself, but almost certainly created or contributed the
      situation or circumstance by which the libel occured. Here fruit of a
      poisoned tree is born; but yet here also the reaper thereof be him who planted the
      seed in springtime.
      In effect, Plaintif seeks, does he not, to be rewarded or compensated
      based on the misinterpretation of his own utterances. Had he not spoken in
      the
      manner which he did, there would be no case. Hoist with his own petard, you
      might say.



      Now this beats all. For starters, what imprecation? There were no cuss
      words used, no profanity and no ill wishes. The jockey was asked a question and
      he answered "a Q-Ray". The writer, obviously forgetting what was said or
      unable to read his own scroll, wrote "cue ring". Since no one ever heard of a
      cue ring and most people know what a Q-Ray is, it gave the appearance of a
      falsity.

      In what "manner" do you, no name provided, think he spoke?


      Sincerely yours,
      Sue
