  • I file for an appeal
  • Gertz won the court case and received 500,000 , Still the cop did not go to jail.
  • Gertz also filed a libel against the magazine for inaccurate accusations against him saying he was a " Leninist and a communist fronter "
  • The gertz vs Robert welch case was appealed to supreme court after going to the court of appeals and the federal courts.
