I called a lawyer and asked about the situation. He said that the
statement I made wasn't libel, that if Dr. Capitals did sue me he'd
have to either do it in Utah or (if he won a default judgment against
me in another state) have the judgment "transferred" (not the lawyer's
word) to Utah in order to have any effect on me. If I recall
correctly, at the point that the judgment gets "transferred" to Utah,
I can fight it in the courts here. Assuming that Dr. Capitals loses
the case (and it seems pretty clear that he would lose), I could sue
him back for (if I understand correctly) wasting my time with a
So given that he would presumably not sue in the first place, that if
he did he'd have to bring it to me here in Utah, and that if he lost I
could potentially hit him back, I'm guessing that the end result here
will be a big fat nothing, except for an entertaining post on my blog.
