Jacques Lacan's daughter has just won a slander judgment against his biographer, Elisabeth Roudinesco, who wrote that Lacan would have preferred a Catholic funeral to the "plain, intimates-only" ceremony he actually had. The court held that Roudinesco had no sufficient grounds for believing this, even if she wrote in good faith. She was sentenced to pay the aggrieved daughter 1 euro plus court costs of 6,000 euros.
Vive la France! Vive la République!
