Promotion Cadet Willard McAdoo Thigpen Jr. of Burlington has received a promotion within the South Carolina Corps of Cadets at The Citadel for the Answer Filed In Libel Suit A local weekly newspaper being sued for a half million dollars in a libel suit by a Burlington man for allegedly depicting him "in a false light in the public eye", responded to the initial complaint Thursday, relying on truth and public records as defenses for many of the charges. William C. Lassiter, general counsel for the N.C. Press Association, prepared the answer for Tom Boney, publisher of the Alamance News in Graham in response to a civil lawsuit brought June 10 by Paul D. Brown. Brown filed suit following publication of his name in news stories and editorials in the newspaper. The Alamance News has a policy of publishing names of local persons charged with driving under the influence of alcohol. Brown did not want his name to appear in the newspaper. The paper alleged that Brown became a "public figure", for which editorials are protected, after his conviction for driving under the influence of alcohol, the revocation of his driver's license and his conduct regarding the newspaper accounts. In the answer, the Alamance News admitted publication of editorials but denied all other material allegations of the complaint. In addition, the answer alleged that Brown "voluntarily and actively projected himself into a matter of great public interest and concern and undertook to use his influence in attempting to change long standing policies established by law with respect to public access to public records..." when Brown tried to stop the information from appearing in the paper.
