CSJ-08-0006.0 This case is about the challenge faced by the Far Eastern Economic Review (FEER) and its parent, Dow Jones, when in 2006 FEER ran afoul of Singapore’s leaders and its government. The case traces the history of the media, both domestic and international, in Singapore. It poses the question of when a media organization should go to court to defend principles of free speech and free expression, versus when it is wiser to simply settle a case and move on.
