Judge drops parts of band founder's Herald lawsuit
Thursday, September 15, 2011

By Travis Andersen
Boston Globe

A Suffolk Superior Court judge has dismissed parts of a defamation lawsuit against the Boston Herald, ruling that the founder of the rock band Boston failed to show that the newspaper published malicious articles about the civil action that he brought against the company last year.

In a ruling yesterday, Judge John C. Cratsley wrote that band founder Tom Scholz "does not say, nor does [he] plead facts to infer, that the sole purpose of the 2010 articles was to defame him and not to inform the public."

An attorney for the Herald, Jeffrey Robbins of Boston, hailed the ruling last night in a phone interview.

"It's a very significant victory . . . for the public and the First Amendment, and for those whose job it is to inform the public [about] what is going on in government, including in the judicial branch" without fear of a retaliatory lawsuit, Robbins said.

Wild Blue Yonder Magazine has published a list of some of Tom Scholz's favorite places in Boston:

The Lowdown:
MIT grad and founder of the rock band BOSTON, Tom Scholz has lived in Beantown for three decades and lays out his favorite haunts.

HANGOUT
Faneuil Hall Marketplace, also known as Quincy Market, is a great place to relax outdoors and watch the endless and entertaining parade of people and street performers (1 Faneuil Hall, 617-523-1300).

EATS
My wife and I love the Mediterranean food at Vlora where there are plenty of options for vegetarians (545 Boylston St, 617-638-9699).

Cafe Sol Azteca, just a short ride from downtown Boston, has a beautiful outdoor terrace and serves excellent guacamole, black bean soup and margaritas (75 Union St, Newton Ctr; 617-964-0920).

Farther out in Waltham, La Campania serves the finest gourmet Italian fare in a relaxed but elegant setting (504 Main St; 781-894-4280).

See a show at Symphony Hall. The acoustics are considered to be the best in the nation. The huge 4,800-pipe organ is incredible, and the grand decor will take you back in time (301 Massachusetts Ave, 617-266-1492).


 
Tom Scholz's defamation suit against Micki Delp dismissed
Monday, August 22, 2011

By Laura Collins-Hughes
Boston Globe

A courtroom feud between Tom Scholz, a founder of the band Boston, and Micki Delp, ex-wife of its late lead singer Brad Delp, may have come to an end with a judge's dismissal of Scholz's defamation claim against her. The Boston Herald, however, remains a target of Scholz's lawsuit.

A week after Brad Delp's March 2007 suicide, the Herald ran a story containing comments by Micki Delp, which, Scholz said, implicated him in the death. The story, by the Herald's Inside Track writers, was headlined, "Pal's snub made Delp do it: Boston rocker's ex-wife speaks.''

"According to Micki Delp," the story said, Brad Delp "was upset over the lingering bad feelings from the ugly breakup of the band Boston over 20 years ago'' and "was driven to despair after his longtime friend Fran Cosmo was dropped from a summer tour, the last straw in a dysfunctional professional life that ultimately led to the sensitive frontman's suicide, Delp's ex-wife said.''

Suffolk Superior Court Judge John C. Cratsley on Friday rejected the claim that Micki Delp had defamed Scholz.
