Capital Times faces defamation lawsuit

United Asian Services of Wisconsin has filed a lawsuit against The Capital Times and reporter Pat Schneider, seeking $10 million for defamation by slander, along with punitive damages and lawyer's fees.

In March, Schneider wrote a story about a dispute between the agency and its executive director, Koua Vang, over control of the agency. The suit says the story and illustration suggest the UAS was "ripped apart" by the dispute.
