Sun Media fined

Successful lawsuits against Sun Media have been a rare occurrence since the launch of the Toronto Sun in 1971, the most notable being the John Munro case in 1981, which cost the tabloid $75,000.

A story says the Court of Quebec has found Sun Media and the Journal de Montreal guilty for invasion of privacy of two Raelians, one of which is a priest.

Sun Media was ordered to pay the victims more than $10,000 in compensatory and punitive damages, as well as judicial expenses and expenses for expertise.

The court action stems from a series of Journal articles on the Raelian religion in 2003.
