“Day after Arkansas Supreme Court justice takes stand, judge says he won’t block attack ads”

Arkansas Online:

A federal judge on Thursday denied Arkansas Supreme Court Justice Courtney Goodson’s request for an injunction to stop attack ads that have been airing against Goodson during her re-election campaign.

The ruling, by U.S. District Judge Brian Miller, came a day after Goodson took to the stand and testified that at least one of the claims about her — that she had requested a raise in 2017 — was false.

I cannot think of a single instance where a judge ordered an attack ad off the air during a campaign on grounds it was false and made with actual malice. Kind of crazy to think that the judge asked for this.
