Real estate developer Jeff Greene, who lost a bid to become the Democratic Senate candidate from Florida in 2010, has failed in his libel action against the Miami Herald and the Tampa Bay Times. Greene, who lives in Palm Beach, claimed in the lawsuit that the Herald and what was at the time still called the St. Petersburg Times had defamed him in their portrayal of the history of his real estate deals. The case was dismissed by Judge Valerie Manno-Schurr, who found that Greene had not satisfactorily made a case for libel. [SFBJ]
