A judge has thrown out a libel lawsuit filed against two St. Michael’s College journalism students by a man who submitted his name as a candidate in New Hampshire’s 2012 presidential primary. US Magistrate Judge John Conroy ruled against John Haywood of North Carolina, who filed for the Democratic primary. Haywood was one of 27 names on the New Hampshire ballot, Democrats and Republicans, who were profiled by students.
