David Duchovny sues for defamation in Los Angeles

The “Californication” award winning star, who recently graduated from rehab school (for an overactive libido), is said to be fighting mad over allegations by the British Daily Mail (an English tabloid) that he cheated on his wife Tea Leoni. Mr. Duchovny has a signed affidavit from the alleged paramour which clearly indicates that the two did not covort. He is seeking one million in damages.

The only way out of this for the Daily Mail is to prove that the allegations are true. Truth is a defense to defamation.
