CATTLEMAN APPEALS WINFREY LIBEL CASE

An Amarillo cattleman has made good on his promise to appeal the high-profile libel case he lost against Oprah Winfrey.

A jury decided in February that Paul Engler and other cattlemen had no valid claim against Ms. Winfrey, her production company and a vegetarian activist under business disparagement laws.

The plaintiffs had claimed Winfrey's April 16, 1996, show dealing with mad cow disease damaged the cattle industry.

Engler appealed last week to the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in New Orleans, alleging the judge made incorrect rulings and other errors.
