http://garyweiss.blogspot.com/2016/05/overstockcom-ceo-patri...

In a scathing decision released on May 6, a Vancouver court found Byrne and his "Deep Capture" faux-journalism venture had fabricated lurid accusations of criminal conduct against a Vancouver businessman named Aly Nazerali. The damage award consists mainly of punitive and aggravated damages, and the judge found that the conduct of Byrne and his minions was so egregious that he slapped a permanent injunction on the defendants.

Ouch!
