In Dominion Defamation Suit Against Fox News, Trial Court Grants Partial Summary Judgment on Falsity of Fox Statements About Election, Leaving Open Issues of Actual Malice, Corporate Responsibility, and Damages

This is quite a loss for Fox, depriving them of the chance to raise all kinds of legal and factual issues. See the 130-page opinion:

Through its extensive proof, Dominion has met its burden of showing there is no genuine issue of material fact as to falsity. Fox therefore had the burden to show an issue of material fact existed in turn. Fox failed to meet its burden. The evidence developed in this civil proceeding demonstrates that is CRYSTAL clear that none of the Statements relating to Dominion about the 2020 election are true.

Via Law & Crime.

Fox emails this statement: “This case is and always has been about the First Amendment protections of the media’s absolute right to cover the news. FOX will continue to fiercely advocate for the rights of free speech and a free press as we move into the next phase of these proceedings.”
