MOSCOW, November 28. /ITAR-TASS/. The Moscow Tverskoi district court has turned down a lawsuit filed by the Party of Pensioners against journalist Boshena Rynska, spokeswoman for the Tverskoi district court Yekaterina Korotkova told Itar-Tass on Thursday.
The judge announced the court resolution only, while motives which prompted the judge to support the defendant will be announced later, the spokeswoman explained.
The Party of Pensioners sued Bozhena Rynska, claiming 40 million roubles in moral damages, after Rynska had criticized pensioners in her blog for "a negative role the pensioners play in public life."
"Rynska encroached on a citizen's dignity and one's right to freely take part in an election, granted by the Russian Constitution," the plaintiffs claimed.
