SAN FRANCISCO -- Jurors weighing psychoanalyst Jeffrey M. Masson's libel case against the New Yorker said yesterday they believe he was defamed by a 1983 profile in the magazine but are deadlocked on the question of how much money he should be awarded.In an unexpected turn of events after Day 3 of deliberations, the eight federal court jurors here released a note revealing that while they unanimously agree that Dr. Masson was libeled by writer Janet Malcolm's articles, they are split on his request for $7.5 million in damages.

New Orleans. IN 1981, Jeffrey Moussaieff Masson abandoned a tenured career as a Sanskrit scholar in Toronto on becoming a psychoanalyst. He has been attacking psychoanalysis ever since.Tossing his books at the therapeutic hierarchy like hand grenades, Dr. Masson is a writer on a quest. His extensive research into Sigmund Freud's early therapeutic cases -- in which Dr. Masson contends that certain female patients were mistreated when their complaints of advances by older men were dismissed as subconscious lust -- have won praise from many feminists and critics of the psychoanalytic establishment.

By altering quotations and the circumstances in which they were said, author Janet Malcolm defamed psychoanalyst Jeffrey Masson in a New Yorker magazine article. That was the conclusion reached by a jury this week in a celebrated libel case. The jury's inability to agree on how much Mr. Masson should collect is a side issue to all but the protagonists and their lawyers.Some quotes attributed to Mr. Masson were not always the words he used, nor were they always uttered at the time or circumstances described in the article.

The Supreme Court has ruled that a journalist may be sued for deliberately misquoting someone in a way that results "in a material change in the meaning conveyed by the statement." Such an alteration is evidence of "actual malice" -- knowledge that one's reporting is false or a reckless disregard for whether the article is true or false. "Actual malice" is the standard journalists writing about public figures have lived with for a generation in the area of defamation.All nine justices agreed the case should go to trial, that the First Amendment does not apply.

"Lost Prince: The Unsolved Mystery of Kaspar Hauser" by Jeffrey Moussaieff Masson. The Free Press. 254 pages. $23 This is the story of Kaspar Hauser, an adolescent who appeared one day in the spring of 1828 on the streets of Nuremberg, Germany. He could barely speak or walk. He was disoriented. He seemed terrorized and fascinated by his surroundings at the same time. The authorities soon determined that he had been confined for up to 12 years in a tiny cell, from his infancy. He grew up without knowing a human being, except for the man whose face he never saw who delivered his daily diet of bread and water.

THE GREAT LIBEL case of Jeffrey Masson against Janet Malcolm has taken a surprising new turn. It throws fresh light on a legal saga that has gone on for more than a decade. And it carries some important lessons about our law of libel and, especially, the judges who administer it.In 1980 Masson, a psychoanalyst, was appointed projects director of the Sigmund Freud Archive. Soon he said publicly that Freud had twisted his findings for personal gain. The archive fired him. He sued; a board member paid him off to settle the case.
