‘Big Short’ Author Lewis Asks Judge to Dismiss Libel Suit

Lawyers for Michael Lewis, the author of “Liar’s Poker” and “Moneyball,” asked a judge to dismiss a lawsuit by a bond manager who claimed Lewis’s book about subprime mortgage investing, “The Big Short,” defamed him.

U.S. District Judge George Daniels heard arguments in Manhattan today on Lewis’s motion to dismiss the libel suit by Wing Chau and his company, Harding Advisory LLC, without a trial. Daniels said he will rule “sometime after Labor Day.”
