His attorneys say Snyder is asking for $1 million in damages from the paper. They claim a November 19 cover story, called "The Cranky Redskins Fan's Guide to Dan Snyder,'' libeled Snyder by implying he committed a crime.

Snyder has said he pursued the lawsuit because the paper refused to apologize and retract certain details. Meanwhile, officials at The City Paper have called the lawsuit frivolous.

This week, the paper filed a motion in D.C. Superior Court under a new District law, which prohibits lawsuits designed to intimidate or silence critics. The law is aimed at suits that use the threat of costly litigation to deter criticism or public opposition.
