DSDS-Men­de­res sues against insult

March 09, 2012. On behalf of Men­de­res Bag­ci, cult con­tes­tant of the RTL cas­ting show DSDS, the law firm Reh­katsch Rechts­an­wäl­te suc­cessful­ly took action against insults in reports on the por­tal Max.de. The insul­ting state­ment regar­ding a nose job was ban­ned by the Colo­gne Local Court. The term “DSDS moron” was cle­ar­ly clas­si­fied as a nega­ti­ve value jud­ge­ment and the press organ was for­bidden to dis­se­mi­na­te it fur­ther.

An insult is the mani­fes­ta­ti­on of one’s own dis­re­gard, con­tempt or dis­re­spect. In this case, the honor of the offen­ded per­son is vio­la­ted, name­ly by a value judgment. Value judgments are fun­da­men­tal­ly pro­tec­ted by the Basic Law. Howe­ver, this no lon­ger appli­es if the honor is vio­la­ted.
