One American News Network Defamation Suit Against Rachel Maddow Dismissed.

Post by marindem01 »

On Friday, a federal judge dismissed One America News Network’s defamation lawsuit against MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow for saying their network “lliterally is paid Russian propaganda.” The decision held that Maddow’s statements, in context, were “an opinion” and “cannot serve as the basis for a defamation.”

https://www.rawstory.com/2020/05/self-o ... el-maddow/.

Commenters on social media were quick to laugh at the failure of OAN, a San Diego-based far-right news network that President Donald Trump has increasingly promoted as he grows frustrated with the coverage on Fox News. Some gleefully commented that because the suit was dismissed under California’s anti-SLAPP law, Maddow is entitled to recover her legal fees from them.

A S.L.A.P.P. Suit is defined as Strategic Lawsuit Against Public Participation. Also known in some circles as a "Nuisance Lawsuit", designed to intimidate the person being sued, which in the case of Dr. Maddow is like trying to intimidate a Kentucky Mule.

These Cons actually thought they could intimidate Rachel Maddow. As I recall Glen Beck tried and failed against her as well.

There is a growing unresolved split on the issues of anti-SLAPP laws conflicting with federal rule 12.

It came about after the New York Shady Grove case which involved a class action left the Supreme court making a muddled ruling regarding the way the class action aspect intersected with rule 12 and New York's Anti-SLAPP law.

The District of Columbia district court ruling on the case Bouter concluded there was conflict between DC's Anti-SLAPP law and Federal rule 12, and ruled that Federal rule 12 should apply.

However the First circuit ruling on the case Goden found there was not a conflict between Maine's Anti-SLAPP law and rule 12. They ruled that Maine's Anti-SLAPP law should be followed. It has not been appealed, so it goes no further.

A Supreme Court ruling on Anti-SLAPP laws and Federal rule 12 is needed for a case which doesn't have a class action involved to muddy the ruling.

Perhaps this case which applies California's Anti-SLAPP law will be appealed and go before the Supreme Court to clarify this split.

I see you woke up this morning thinking you could read my mind again.

And this time taking a look down my throat. Did you notice while you were looking that I still have my tonsils??? Perhaps it was my tonsils in my throat you mistakenly identified as being a district court ruling lodged further down in my craw. It has to be something like that because humans don't have craws.

I don't think you understood the thrust of my post. If it goes before the Supreme Court for clarification without a class action aspect muddying the water, that removes the element Judge Sclaia used to write his opinion for Shady Grove which diminished the application of Anti-SLAPP laws over Federal rule 12. Which probably lead to the precedent set by Bouter, which diminishes the number of cases when Anti-SLAPP laws will apply in the future, and Federal rule 12 would be used instead.

Because Maddow is being sued by a "Far Right News Agency" with deep dark donor pockets it's possible they might appeal, and as thus the case might go before the Supreme Court for clarification. It would have a fair chance without that class action aspect to be clarified increasing the reach of Anti-SLAPP laws over Federal rule 12, which would be a good thing in my opinion.

Not only would Maddow win, she would have her name enshrined in a mini land mark case which changed a minor application of law for the better as I see it.

Does that clarify it for you Judge Too Quick?

Fucked Spews went up against Dr. Maddow a few times and lost. Glen Beck tried calling her and had his fat ass handed to him. Slant Head tried calling her out over education and was embarrassed by the result.

Here is what dead from the neck up Cons forget. Dr. Maddow is Rhodes Scholar. She is wicked smart and unlike the Bubble Headed Bleach Blondes on Fixed Lies, she does her research before going on air.

OAN got OWNED by a Girl. Sammy hates that.

Snowflake Cons. They need something to bitch about...even when they have been proven wrong.

This is the bottom line sammy.

OAN LOST.

Rachel Maddow WON.

All your sound and thunder signifies nothing.

OAN got OWNED by a Girl who happens to a Rhodes Scholar.

OAN tried and failed with a SLAPP Suit. It does not matter what you write or how you feel about the failure of OAN's SLAPP Suit.

You're such Snowflake.

This is how Con's act when they lose, bitching and whining about the process and NOT the result.

After two rounds of this with full explanation on my part, you still don't get that I'm not arguing against your position on this. I'm not on the other side.

You have so incredibly misunderstood what Sam said that it defies description. I’d suggest you review the thread in detail but I fear that would be a lost cause. Better you should get your wife to read the topic and explain to you what Sam is saying. Although I doubt your capacity to even understand this suggestion.

Yes, sammy is being a snowflake, he does attack or demean the judge's decision, he attacks the suit filed by OAN. Snowflake.

I was in noway, shape and/or form being diminutive toward Dr. Maddow. "Being Owned By A Girl" has been used by numerous Cons when a Con Female wins. I was merely using what has been used by Cons their own damn self.

As previously stated.

OAN got OWNED by a GIRL.

sammy is snowflake. My post(s) stands.

I did read his post(s) and they are hardly open-minded. He attacked the law suit, NOT the decision of the judge.

I am hardly a con, never have been and never will be.

And you haven’t the remotest idea what Sam said.

Get your wife to read Sam’s post and have her explain it to you.
