Spitz lawsuit
After the CBS show aired, Spitz gave an interview that led to the separate suit. In the interview, Spitz said, 'It's the boy who did it, whether he was jealous, or mentally unfit or something ... I don't know of the why, I'm not a psychiatrist, but what I am sure about is what I know about him, that is what happened here.'
From Crimeonline.com 2/2/17:

“Dr. Spitz expressed his own view — as the First Amendment affords him the right to do — but his speculations, even if firmly held and confidently expressed, are not statements of fact,” the response stated.

On Tuesday, Burke apparently headed back to court again after Spitz claimed he is allowed to theorize about the case under free speech. Burke’s lawyer, however, stated that Spitz is backpedaling and using any excuse he can to avoid facing responsibility.

‘[Spitz is] seeking to avoid responsibility for his false accusations against Burke by contending that he was simply expressing his opinion and that his accusation is subjective and not capable of being proven true or false….Spitz’s statements that he is sure that Burke was JonBenet’s killer are now self-servingly misrepresented as subjective statements that cannot, as a matter of law, be interpreted to convey statements that assert provable facts.”

Dr. Spitz told CBS Detroit:

“If you really, really use your free time to think about this case, you cannot come to a different conclusion. It’s the boy (Burke Ramsey) who did it (murdered JonBenet), whether he was jealous, or mentally unfit or something.. I don’t know the why. I’m not a psychiatrist, but what I am sure about is what I know about him, that is what happened here. And the parents changed the scene to make it look like something it wasn’t.”

Jim Stewart is Spitz' lawyer. He asked for the case against his client to be dismissed - but Detroit Judge David Groner says he needs to actually hear the interview, not just read an article about the interview.
The judge questioning why he has not yet received a copy of that audio and that he'll need that within the next couple of weeks to move further.
Thats great!! Ofcourse his lawyer wants to drop everything. Glad the judge is refusing to listen to his lawyer and actually see the EVIDENCE! Betta start working now Mr Spitz! Soon you will owe millions of dollars!!!
Just an update - - as of July 4th, 2018 the lawsuit is going forward, Spitz will answer for his actions.

I think the man has always responded to questions in order to please those he was trying to impress - truth be damned. Time he was exposed. And those who took advantage of his nasty habit, too.

This was settled without a trial, the amount of the settlement was not disclosed.
