Oprah on defamation issue

It seems that back in 2007, a group of students at Winfrey’s school accused dorm parents of sexual abuse. Winfrey was intimately involved with the school and met with Mzamane, who was soon put on administrative leave pending an investigation.

Winfrey said: “nothing is more serious or devastating to me than an allegation of misconduct by an adult against any girl at the academy. I will do everything in my power to ensure their safety and well-being.”

Later, Winfrey said she had “lost confidence in (Mzamane’s) ability to run this school. And therefore, she will not be returning to this school.”

Therefore, Mzamane sued for defamation, false light and infliction of emotional distress. Winfrey then sought to have these claims dismissed on summary judgment.

The trial is now set for March 29 in Philadelphia.
