I think that this article raises a good point: that academics who are sued for the content of academic articles should not be left 'twisting in the wind' by their institutions. But it sidesteps a more general issue: that the threat of lawsuit acts as an effective censor against people without the means to defend themselves, academic or not. It raises the question of whether justice ought to be available only to those who can afford it, or whether it is something that ought to be available to all members of society. Students, for example.
