Moore libel claim.
James Nichols, the brother of Oklahoma City bombing conspirator Terry, claims Moore tricked him into appearing in the film Bowling for Columbine, the 2002 Oscar-winning documentary that looked at guns and violence in American culture.
Nichols also claims that Moore libelled him in the film by linking him to the 1995 bombing that killed 168 people.
He has accused Moore of libel, defamation of character, invasion of privacy and intentional infliction of emotional distress.
Moore's lawyer, Herschel Fink, argued that his client's assertions in Bowling for Columbine are protected as free speech.
ACCUSED: Michael Moore
