The older brother of JonBenét Ramsey is suing the U.S. television network CBS and others for $750m (£610m), saying his reputation was ruined after a television series concluded he killed his six-year-old sister two decades ago.
JonBenet Ramsey was found dead in the basement of her family home in Boulder, Colorado, on Boxing Day 1996.
The CBS Special provided theories as to how Burke may have killed the young girl, including implying that Burke may have been heard on the 911 call made by the Ramseys, that Patsy Ramsey wrote the ransom note, and that JonBenet could have been hit over the head by Burke with a flashlight, according to the court filing.
The pathologist is also named in the latest lawsuit, which was filed in MI, where Ramsey lives. In the special, details and speculation are provided as to how Ramsey could have killed six-year-old JonBenet, which he says damaged his financial health and reputation and caused mental anguish.
Within the alleged false information were statements that had pointed to Mr.Ramsey's participation in burying up the evidence of the crime with his parents, and then lied and denied everything to the authorities later.

There has been a lot of media coverage on the United Nations Security Council's resolution against Israeli settlements ("Obama is at fault in Israel settlement mess,"Dec. 27)".
District Attorney Stan Garnett has said that ruling was not binding and that his office is investigating the case.
Burke is seeking $750m in compensatory and punitive damage, LawNewz reported.
A prosecutor cleared her parents and brother in 2008 based on DNA evidence.
His attorney Lin Wood, who talked to us on the phone from Atlanta, tells us, "They did it for ratings during sweeps, and they did it for profits".
"The accusation that Burke Ramsey killed his sister was based on a compilation of lies, half-truths, manufactured information and the intentional omission and avoidance of truthful information about the murder", the lawsuit says.
