Author Steven Galloway's Defamation Lawsuit Headed to Trial

In British Columbia, a defamation lawsuit filed by author Steven Galloway against a woman he says falsely accused him of sexual and physical assaults can go to trial. Galloway, who was once chair of the University of British Columbia’s creative writing program, filed the lawsuit three years ago. The woman’s identity is protected by a publication ban, but she is referred to in court documents as A.B. Galloway’s lawsuit also names more than 20 other defendants.
