(Reuters) – Former New York Governor Eliot Spitzer and the online magazine Slate on Friday won dismissal of a $60 million libel lawsuit by a former Marsh & McLennan Cos executive over a column about an insurance bid-rigging scandal.

U.S. District Judge J. Paul Oetken in Manhattan threw out former executive marketing director William Gilman’s 13-month-old lawsuit against Spitzer and The Slate Group LLC.

He also dismissed the defendants’ request for damages from Gilman for having allegedly brought a meritless case to harass them and silence criticism.
