Defamed Law Profs Win $5.2 million Against West Publishing

Here's a report of a  defamation win by two law profs against West Publishing that seems,  well, a little excessive based on the reported facts.  According to the report, the defamation claim was based on false attribution of authorship of a poorly done pocket part.  I guess the profs didn't buy the argument than any publicity is good publicity.  I'm dying to know more, because there must have been more for the verdict to have been this large.  The plaintiffs were David Rudovsky and Leonard Sosnov.
