I tried my best to bring the truth to the American people as did brother Dick Gregory. But when you have CIA and FBI working against you it is rough - not to mention the Rockefeller Commission. Not that Hunt dropped the suit against me after five years of pretrial.

 atergate burglar drops libel lawsuit
y
JOAN
FLEISCHMAN
Herald
Swff
Writer
The evening before his S2.5-million lawsuit against two New York authors was to go to trial,
con
victed Watergate burglar
E
Howard Hunt of Miami dropped the libel action Thursday. -Hunt had sued Alan Weberman and Michael Can field, who wrote a book titled
Coup
d Etat
in
Ameri
ca.:
TheClA
and
the
A
 
a
 
ination
of
John F. Kennedy.
The suit. filed
in
1976, also named Third Press-Joseph Ok paku Publishing
Co
of New York
Ci
ty and book editor
aria
Garcia Feliciano as defendants. The complaint. prepared by Hunt's attorney, Ellis Rubin, alleged that the book said Hunt and the
CIA
were responsible for the assassinations of President Kennedy and the
Rev
Martin Luther King. The authors' New York attorney, Bruce Stahl. said his clients believed Hunt dropped the suit because the case was· weak and it would have made Hunt look worse instead of better. Rubin, however, said Hunt decided not to go to trial because
he
had won $650,000 last December in a simi lar suit against Liberty Lobby, publisher of a tabloid newspaper called Spotlight.
An
article appeared
in
that paper based on the book
Coup Et
at,
Rubin said. Rubin
al
so said neither Weberman nor Canfield had any
mo
ney to recover. Rather than
go
throu
gh
a whole trial, as lo
ng
as Mr. Hunt has proven his point and people have sto
pp
ed accusing him of this
fal
sehood, we agreed to drop our claim
if
Weberman would drop his counterclaim, Rubin said. The counterclaim s dropped. and the o
nl
y
mo
ney paid was $200 to Stahl for travel expenses for a pretri al conference held
in
Miami. Rubin said. Hunt served nearly three years
in
federal pri
so
n after pleading guilty to conspiracy, second-degree glary and wiretapping for his role
in
the Watergate scandal.
