libel tourism
 n.— «British law requires the loser in a court case to pay the winner’s court costs. This is the real attraction for shady millionaires: the chance to bankrupt their opponents into silence. Because of this, Britain has become a Mecca for rich but shady characters seeking to purchase the appearance of legal vindication. There’s even a name for it: libel tourism.» —“Saudi Money Attacking Free Speech in America” by Robert Locke American Daily July 12, 2006. (source: Double-Tongued Dictionary)
