Defamation: ad falsely portrays woman as having HIV

False HIV Identification in NY Poster Ruled Defamatory

Joel Stashenko, New York Law Journal  

A woman was defamed by the state’s use of her picture with words falsly identifying her as having HIV in a 2013 advertisement opposing discrimination against those infected with the virus, a Court of Claims judge has determined.

You see it’s the state, i.e., New York State, found guilty of defaming the woman whose picture was used. What were they thinking?
