In July 2001 Silvio Berlusconi, then prime minister of Italy, launched a lawsuit in Italy alleging that The Economist had defamed him in its article "An Italian Story", which appeared in its April 26th 2001 issue. The magazine cover bore the title: "Why Silvio Berlusconi is unfit to lead Italy".

We are pleased to announce that the Court in Milan has issued a judgment rejecting all Mr Berlusconi's claims and requiring him to make a payment for costs to The Economist. The full judgment, in Italian, is available here. The Economist will not be making any further comment.

Mr Berlusconi is once again prime minister of Italy.
