Popcorn Futures are Soaring - Hate Group sues SPLC

I am getting this second hand from Family Research Council in an email to supporters:
Family Research Council Statement on D. James Kennedy Ministries' Lawsuit Against the Southern Poverty Law Center

WASHINGTON, D.C. -- Yesterday, D. James Kennedy Ministries filed a lawsuit in an Alabama federal court against the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) alleging "that the SPLC illegally trafficked in false and misleading descriptions of the services offered by D. James Kennedy Ministries and committed defamation against D. James Kennedy Ministries arising from the publication and distribution of false information that libels the ministry's reputation and subjects the ministry to disgrace, ridicule, odium, and contempt in the estimation of the public."
I will pull up the complaint. However, SPLC ordinarily reports an organization's own words. Moreover there is a requirement to mitigate. Has the Kennedy Group attempted to correct the record?
Lt. Gen. (Ret.) Jerry Boykin, former U.S. Army Delta Force commander and current Family Research Council executive vice president, made the following comments:

"I applaud D. James Kennedy Ministries for its efforts to expose the truth about the Southern Poverty Law Center, a discredited organization that has become so controversial that even the Obama Justice Department backed away from the group -- along with the FBI and U.S. Army.
Genereal Jerry's statement is untrue. The DoJ removed all external resources from its site but has returned them, including SPLC.

If SPLC is as marginalized and discredited as these groups claim then their opinion (and that is what it is) should be irrelevant. Apparently that is not the case. I cannot wait to see who the lawyer is on the complaint.
