The British Chiropractic Association has dropped its libel case against Simon Singh.
Simon Singh is a well known British author of books on popular science and mathematics. His most well know books are Fermat’s Last Theorem and The Code Book, however when he wrote about alternative medicine in Trick or Treatment the British Chiropractic Association sued. This instantly became a cause celebre as a case for libel law reform in Britain.
After much controversy the case has now been dropped.
