LIFE Dynamics, the ''personality awareness'' course operator, is taking Next Magazine to court after claiming it was libelled by the current affairs weekly. A Supreme Court writ claims an article on Life Dynamics dated January 8, made ''defamatory statements'' about the programme. The company running Life Dynamics, ARC International, invited Next Magazine to ''correct'' what it saw as ''factual errors'' in the piece,based around the experiences of someone who had been through the course. However publisher Yeung Wai-heung declined, telling P.S. he stood by the article and pledged to fight the case in the courts. ''We thought the report was quite balanced and we had good testimonial from other people about what they thought of Life Dynamics,'' he said. For ARC, Mr Mitch Feigenberg said: ''There is a line beyond which you can step when an article becomes offensive. ''We are more than willing to have legitimate scrutiny of what Life Dynamics is doing, but we want balanced reporting. ''This is a signal to the publishing community to think about what they write about us - we take the work we do very seriously.'' After saying that ARC's lawyer, Mr Tim Scott, had visited training sessions to check the article's assertions, Mr Feigenberg defended the decision to bring the lawsuit by warning: ''We are not just here for anyone to rip in to.''
