The New Republic - Jorge Mas Canosa Collection

The New Republic/Jorge Mas Canosa Collection in Special Collections in the Green Library at Florida International University consists of materials gathered by legal counsel retained by the New Republic magazine as part of trial preparation in a libel suit filed against the magazine by Mr. Mas Canosa, Chairman of the Cuban American National Foundation. The suit stemmed from an article that ran in the October 3, 1994 edition of the New Republic written by Anne Louise Bardach (pp. 20-25).

On November 18, 1994, Mr. Mas Canosa filed suit in Dade Circuit Court in Miami, naming the New Republic and Bardach as defendants and alleging he was repeatedly libeled in the October 3 article (The Miami Herald, November 19, 1994, p. 1-B).
