Judge Rejects Fox News Effort to Dismiss Dominion Lawsuit

A judge in Delaware has dismissed the latest attempt from Fox Corp. to throw out a lawsuit from voting systems company Dominion.

The Hill reports:

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’ parent company, might have knowingly allowed unproven claims about voter fraud to be aired on the channel.

In court filings, Dominion asserted that Rupert Murdoch “decided to promote former President Trump’s narrative after Trump’s condemnation of Fox damaged its stock and viewership,” the filing noted. Davis ruled on Tuesday the voting systems company “adequately states a claim for defamation per se against Fox Corporation based on its theory of direct liability.”

The court noted Fox Corp. argued Dominion makes “only conclusory allegations of supposed decision-making,” between Fox Corp. and Fox News.

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.

The outlet is also being sued by Smartmatic, another voting systems company over similar claims about election fraud made on its network.

Does the Judge even care the Dominion helped steal the election. Yes I helped steal the election. Regardless whether you believe it or not. Biden told us it would be stolen but because he is such a pathetic lier No believed but it happened. BIDEN SAID: “We have put together I think the most extensive and inclusive voters fraud organization in the History of the United States.” And it happened. Trump held rallies os twenty to thirty and one at fifty thousand with supporters towo or three times a day most of 2020 some before and Biden and Kamalacouldn’t muster up more then twenty or so in their rallies and findly sat on their dierriares most of 2020 knowing the fix was in. Do you now understand that Trump and the supporters
we’re so upset but that was not what took place in DC on J6th. And if honest. Investigating will be done not looking how hey counld blame President Trump,
The real culverts will be found out. And I can prove that the recounts that were Don were incorrectly. The answer IS ON THE COUNT BUT ONLY THE LEGAL BALLOTS
HAVE A WATER MARK ON THE BACK, ALL THE REST ARE NOT LIGAL BALLOTS.
LET’S GO COUNT THE BALLOTS AGAIN AND THROW AWAY THE ILLEGAL ONES.

Looks like the purveyors of THE BIG LIE claim are trying to eliminate FOX News and leave only liberal Pravda site running.

I wonder what will happen should the Supreme Court take up the case concerning what the Constitution states about State LEGISLATURES being the only bodies allowed to change State elections laws. What if THE BIG LIE is proven to be true?

Gee, a Delaware judge is allowing Dominion and probably Smartmatic lawsuits against FOX News to proceed. Go figure. Does anyone want to bet this judge is not a Biden supporter?

We the people have a job to do once we retake the house and senate. WE have to DEMAND THAT THE LEADERS DEAL WITH THE TOTAL WASTE OF SKIN JUDGES THAT ARE NOT FOLLOWING THE LETTER OF THE LAW. THEY ARE JUST AS BAD IF NOT WORSE THEN THE AG’S WE ARE RECALLING. WE NEED TO REMOVE WOKE FROM OUR LEGAL SYSTEM. AS LONG AS WOKE JUSTICE IS OUT THERE TO FESTER. OUR NATION WILL FOREVER BE JUST ONE VOTE AWAY FROM DISAPPEARING. ALL THE JUDGES THAT WOULDN’T DO THEIR JOB AFTER THE ELECTION. THE JUDGE THAT INSISTED ON RUINING A GENERALS LIFE CAUSE HE WOULD HAVE BLOWN THE WHISTLE ON OBAMA’S PART IN THE RUSSIAN CLINTON SPY CAMPAIGN AGAINST TRUMP. OBAMA AND HIS LACKIES DID THEIR BEST TO DESTORY GEN. FLYNN. TOOK EVERYTHING BUT HIS FAMILY FROM HIM. THAT IS BEYOND TREASONOUS AND ESPIONAGE. THEY HARMED A MILITARY MEMBER SERVING CAUSE HE WOULD HAVE BEEN ABLE TO SHINE A LIGHT ON THEIR CRIMINAL BEHAVIOR. SHINE A LIGHT ON THE FACT CLINTON WAS TRYING TO BUY THE WHITEHOUSE, STEAL IT FROM AMERICANS. AND WORSE OBAMA WAS OK WITH THE CLINTONS TRYING TO RIG AN ELECTION TO STEAL THE WHITEHOUSE. WE HAVE OBAMA ON A OPEN MIC TELLING RUSSIAN TO GET HIS PEOPLE TO STOP AND BE CAREFUL CAUSE THEY WERE GONNA GET CAUGHT. THAT’S WORSE THEN JUST TREASON. THAT’S ESPIONAGE. AND WE WILL ONLY BE ABLE TO TRY AND PUNISH THOSE DOING US HARM IF WE HAVE A SAFE, JUST LEGAL SYSTEM. SOMETHING DEMS HAVE CORRUPTED OVER THE PAST FEW DECADES. REMEMBER JOEY RAN ON THE STATEMENT “HE WOULD NOT INTERFER WITH DOJ, WILL NOT INFLUENCE THEIR ABILITY. I GUESS WE CAN SAY HE LIED. BUT THAT’S OK CAUSE IF WE WAIT ON HUNTER WE WILL GET JUSTICE. HE WON’T BE JAILED TO BE PARDONED. LET HUNTER THINK HE’S FREE ON JOEY’S WATCH. THEN WE FLUSH OUT THE BAD LEFTIST JUDGES LIKE THE DIMWIT PUT ON SCOTUS WHO CAN’T ID HERSELF AS A WOMAN OR WHAT A WOMAN IS. AND THEN REBUILD OUR LEGAL SYSTEM WITH HONORABLE “LAW ABIDING CITIZENS”.

What Liberal, activist judges will learn is that ruling in favor of Liberals’ actions against a media corporation set the helpful precedents Americans will need to sue and destroy the Liberal Media.

Justice will thusly be served.
