Michael Lewis writes best-selling books--sometimes about subjects that aren't easy to understand. Moneyball and The Blind Side, while complicated in parts, are among the simpler of Lewis' offerings. His 2010 book The Big Short--an absolutely riveting account of the complex 2008 financial crisis--was harder. But Lewis did what he's the best at--using personalities to carry much of the narrative burden. One of the personalities in The Big Short didn't like it too much, and sued Lewis for libel.
A US Circuit Court of Appeals just found Lewis not guilty of libeling money manager Wing Chau in a chapter entitled "Spider-Man at the Venetian." The court's decision was by a 2-1 vote.
