FoxmanADL of B'nai B'rith Settles Defamation Case

March 12, 2004



DENVER (AP) -- The Anti-Defamation League of B'nai B'rith has settled a bitter 1994 defamation case by paying $12.1 million to a couple it accused of anti-Semitism.

William and Dorothy Quigley won a jury verdict in 2000, but the case was appealed the U.S. Supreme Court. The high court declined to hear the case.

The dispute began in 1994, when Mitchell and Candace Aronson moved into a house near the Quigleys in Evergreen, just west of Denver. The families clashed and the Aronsons claimed it was because they were Jewish.

The Aronsons sought help from the ADL after the Aronsons' police scanner picked up the Quigleys' conversation on a cordless telephone.

They said they heard the Quigleys discuss a campaign to drive them from the upscale neighborhood with scare tactics, including putting pictures of Holocaust ovens on their house and tossing lampshades and soap on their lawn.

Based on recordings of those calls, they sued the Quigleys in federal court, prosecutors charged the Quigleys with hate crimes, and the ADL's regional director denounced the Quigleys as anti-Semites.

Authorities later discovered the recordings were illegal under new federal wiretap restrictions. Criminal and civil complaints filed by the Aronsons were eventually dropped or dismissed and the Quigleys countersued the ADL.

In a statement, the ADL said it was disappointed the Supreme Court declined to hear the case. The organization said it will continue to fight "hatred, racism, bigotry, extremism, anti-Semitism and threats to our democracy."
