While Food Lion says the story was untrue, the company didn't sue for libel.
It would have had to prove A-B-C acted with malice or reckless disregard for the truth.
At the time the suit was filed, Food Lion says it "could not imagine that a news organization with A-B-C's reputation" would maliciously produce an inaccurate story.
By the time ABC handed over the outtakes, the statute of limitations on libel had expired, and the judge wouldn't let Food Lion add a libel count to the lawsuit.

((For more than two decades, WROV-AM was one of the top radio stations in Roanoke.
During the mid-70s, the station featured Bart Prater's baritone and Rob O'Brady's tenor. In 1976, the station added a soprano to the ensemble. ((VOICE OF FEMALE DISC JOCKEY: COMING UP NEXT, I'VE GOT AEROSMITH.))
At the time, Linda Silver was the only female deejay on the air in Roanoke. ((BART PRATER/FORMER WROV DISC JOCKEY: SHE WAS TALENTED. I DON'T THINK IT WAS THOUGHT OF AS ANY BIG DEAL.))
But to some of her listeners -- and co-workers -- it WAS a big deal. ((LINDA SILVER/FORMER WROV DISC JOCKEY: I TOOK A LOT OF ABUSE. THINGS THAT TODAY WOULDN'T BE TOLERATED, WOULD BE CALLED "SEXUAL HARRASSMENT." YOU JUST LET IT ROLL OFF YOUR BACK, AND YOU JUST GO AND DO WHAT YOU WANT TO DO. I WANTED IT THAT BADLY.))
After WROV, Linda moved to K-92. She says once she was accepted, she had a blast. ((LINDA SILVER: IT HAS TO BE PART SHOW BUSINESS, PART GLITZ, PART GLAMOR. AND IT'S FUN. AND THAT'S WHAT TAKES YOU A STEP ABOVE THE REST OF THEM. ASIDE FROM PEOPLE WHO JUST KEY THE MIKE AND GO "IT'S 1:13 AND THAT WAS THE TALKING HEADS." NO!))
Today, Linda is the Music Director at WDBZ-FM in New York City. In a market where radio stations change music formats, announcers, even call letters at the drop of a ratings point, the Music Director has to be more than just another pretty voice. ((LINDA SILVER: I CREATE MUSIC LOGS, I DEAL WITH THE JOCKS, I SCHEDULE JOCKS, I INTERVIEW JOCKS, AND I HAVE THE LOVELY DUTY OF WHEN THEY SCREW UP, TO HAVE TO "DISCUSS" IT WITH THEM.))
As for the future -- Linda would like to move to another previously all- male part of a radio station. ((LINDA SILVER: AND EVENTUALLY, I'D LIKE TO BE A GENERAL MANAGER. AND MAKE SURE THAT EVERYBODY STILL HAS FUN. BECAUSE WHEN YOU LOSE THAT ASPECT OF FUN AND PERSONALITY AND INVOLVEMENT IN THE COMMUNITY, YOU MIGHT AS WELL TURN OFF THE LIGHTS AND GO HOME.))
A boss who wants everybody to have fun -- that would really be something to talk about!
