Judge dismisses latest bid from Fox to toss Dominion lawsuit

Source: The Hill

“A judge in Delaware has dismissed the latest attempt from Fox Corp. to throw out a lawsuit from voting systems company Dominion, which is suing the conservative media giant for defamation for claims made on its airwaves falsely suggesting it was engaged in fraud during the 2020 election. In an opinion issued on Tuesday, Delaware Superior Court Judge Eric M. Davis denied a motion from Fox Corp. to dismiss the suit, saying Dominion had sufficiently shown Rupert and Lachlan Murdoch, who own and operate Fox News’[s] parent company, might have knowingly allowed unproven claims about voter fraud to be aired on the channel. … Dominion sued the network last March for $1.6 billion. In a motion in December to dismiss the case, which was denied, Fox argued it ‘did not create allegations against Dominion,’ but that they were reporting on the remarks of others, including former President Trump and his supporters.” (06/22/22)
