himself from the case! On September 6th, 2000 the
new judge, Albert V. Bryan, Jr. dismissed the

The 4th Circuit awarded Mrs.
Tibbetts her pro se request for costs of appeal
($880) on June 30, 2000. As of 9-8-2000
Bestfoods/Webner still have not sent Mrs.
Tibbitts a check. Of coarse this is a pittance in
comparison to the real costs, many tens of
thousands of dollars it cost Mrs. Tibbetts and
her family to defend their First Amendment rights
against this SLAPP suit.
And last but not least is the
fact that the family legacy, the use of the
Skippy trademark on food. A taking of this
family's most valuable asset.
Unilever will see fit to correct this terrible
injustice, and broom not so reputable management

the Tibbitt family.

because it raises serious First Amendment concerns, we vacate the
injunction and remand for further proceedings in

of how CPC

rights to the Skippy® trademark for food products.
And furthermore, how CPC / Bestfoods have now received

And then CPC/

CPC/Bestfoods a clear message by BOYCOTTING

In this case it is clear that the courts have not
