Court to hear Fredriksson lawsuit early next year

STOCKHOLM - Marie Fredriksson's ongoing battle with the Swedish tabloid newspaper Expressen will have its day in court. Journalisten, a website for Swedish journalists, said in a report today that the lawsuit between Marie Fredriksson and Expressen will be heard early next year.

  According to Journalisten, the court looked at the possibility of setting a new date for the hearing in the past months and now Marie's lawyer, Leif Silbersky, has requested – considering Marie's undergoing rehabilitation – a new date on the court's calendar for the beginning of 2005. Expressen's legal team didn't opose the request.

  The lawsuit was postponed in August 2003 due to Marie's state of health and because Expressen suddenly claimed that their story was accurate before the case was to go to trial.
