FACEBOOK FAKE DAMAGES.
Cameraman Grant Raphael set up an entry on the social networking site entitled: "Has Mathew Firsht lied to you?"
It contained private information about Mr Firsht, whose company provide audiences for TV and radio.
The entry contained lies - including claims that he was a member of groups such as Gay in the Wood and Gay Jews in London.
It was made on Raphael's computer at his home in London's Hampstead - but he insisted it was made by someone else.
At the High Court in London, deputy judge Richard Parkes branded that claim "utterly far fetched".
He awarded Mr Firsht pounds 15,000 for libel and pounds 2000 for breach of privacy - and his firm won pounds 5000 for libel.
