The good news: The Irish News, a Belfast paper, won its appeal of the the libel case filed by the owner of Goodfellas pizzeria over a bad restaurant review. The original verdict had The Irish News paying out 25,000 pounds, roughly $36,000 U.S.

The bad news: The Irish News has to pay all its court costs, according to the Court of Appeal.

Apparently the food is not the only thing that stinks.
