Economic Development Minister Vic Fedeli is keeping mum on an attempt to block his $8-million defamation lawsuit against former PC leader Patrick Brown over a tell-all memoir published a year ago.

"I won't be commenting because it's a very active lawsuit," Fedeli said Friday of the legal action, which claims Brown's book mounted a "vicious and petulant attack" against him, in part by alleging he sexually harassed an employee.

Brown's lawyer, Howard Winkler, has brought a motion to have the case dismissed as a "strategic lawsuit against public participation" under the Courts of Justice Act.
