The Constitutional Court judgments in Le Roux & others v Dey (Freedom of Expression Institute and Restorative Justice Centre as Amici Curiae) 2011 (3) SA 274 (CC) give rise to many concerns that will no doubt be commented on in the coming months and years. I wish, in this short note, to focus only on what was said about the pleading of meaning in the defamation judgment. In other words, I do not address the freedom of speech issues, but rather the fair trial issue that is raised in this judgment.
