Judges dismiss Devin Nunes' defamation lawsuits against Republican strategist

Source: Fresno Bee

A Virginia judge has dismissed the second of two lawsuits California Rep. Devin Nunes filed against a Republican political strategist who he claimed spread defamatory information about him leading up to his 2018 reelection campaign.

Judge John Marshall’s ruling from earlier this month in Virginia’s Henrico County Circuit Court dismisses Liz Mair from a case Nunes filed against her, Twitter and anonymous writers who heckled him on Twitter under the fictional personas of a cow and his mother.

Marshall previously dismissed Twitter from the lawsuit, meaning Nunes cannot sue the company in that court over the claims he raised in the case. Nunes continues to attempt to sue the Twitter personalities known as “Devin Nunes’ cow,” @DevinCow, and “Devin Nunes’ Alt-Mom,” @NunesAlt, although he has not been able to serve them with a complaint.

The ruling to dismiss Mair, obtained by The Fresno Bee, reads that Nunes’ complaint failed to describe the exact words Mair used to defame him, that the statements Nunes alleged Mair made were not defamatory and that “the facts alleged fail to support a reasonable inference that Mair made any of the alleged statements with the requisite intent of actual malice.”

6. how about some sanctions?

It seems Mr. Nunes and his legal representation have overabused the court system with their nonsense.

8. Nunes law firm is scamming him.

I'm reasonably certain that the attorney knew Devon Nunes didn't have a milking stool leg to stand on in this case, but he was waving money in their faces insisting they take it to court.

Can he pawn his Presidential Medal Of Freedom?
