Mark Boswell sued Eric Jackson for defamation and injury by libel and slander for publishing a hatchet job (article) which was completely baseless, unverified, unsupported by any fact and full of slander, false accusations and smears (for which Jackson is now famous for).
A complaint was filed on August 16, 2006 by Alejandro Moncada Luna, Boswell's attorney (who is now chief magistrate for the Supreme Court of Panama). The crime which was the basis of the complaint was investigated and confirmed by the prosecutor's office. Upon conclusion of the investigation it was found to be valid and the 'Vista Fiscal No. 350 dated 29 June, 2007 recommended the matter to the court for prosecution.
The case was filed in the Second Superior Court in the First Judicial District of Panama. Click Here

The complaint included 8 specific acts for which Jackson was being held accountable in his article and for which he has absolutely no defense whatsoever.
In the hearing of the final arguments, Jackson claimed he did not have enough time to gather his evidence and obtained from the judge, a provisional suspension of the case to give him more time to gather his evidence which he said he needed to get from the government of the United States. Of course it was all a sham.
Jackson never returned to court with his evidence (because it didn't exist) and thus he never provided any defense to the charges in the complaint.
The court rules required that Boswell initiate a request for continuance before a date set certain.
Unfortunately, during this time Moncada Luna was appointed as chief magistrate to the Supreme Court and he abandoned the case and his client entirely. He did so very unprofessionally without the courtesy of another lawyer recommendation or even a return phone call.
To make matters worse, Boswell was at this time fighting for his life in a matter involving his now 'ex' spouse who was in the process of stealing everything he owned and ruining his business and his ability to earn a living which turned everything upside down in both his personal and his business life. This in itself had a large effect on what was going on in the big picture as well including Boswell's business activity.
So, between the two events, the case against Jackson was never fully prosecuted and that window of opportunity had subsequently closed.
Jackson brags that he beat the case. The fact is, he had no defense to the charges and he never put on a defense against the charges and the charges were never fully prosecuted. He 'escaped' the sanctions of the law merely by virtue of procedure, circumstance and whatever else might have gone on behind closed doors that we may never know.

Thus, Jackson escaped the penalties and repercussions of the lawsuit without ever having presented a defense in any way, shape or form.
There was another goofball who was a mirror clone of Eric Jackson who was equally irresponsible, an evil creator of mayhem in his own blog, named Okke Ornstein. He would also chime in with Jackson on the Mark Boswell matter (and many others).
One small consolation was in the fact that he did see his day in court. Ornstein would often compound the Jackson crimes by simply buying into the Jackson fantasy and perpetuating it with his own rants without any investigation whatsoever. Okke got his day in court from others. Click Here
At least there is 'some' justice in this world. And we know, the justice that isn't meted out in this world, will be delivered in the next....
Praise God for that!
