Judge Dimisses Nunes Defamation Suit Against CNN on Technicality
A federal judge in New York on Friday cited a technicality in dismissing a defamation lawsuit brought by Rep. Devin Nunes (R-Calif.) against “CNN.” U.S. District Judge Laura Taylor Swain dismissed the lawsuit on a technicality, verbalizing that Nunes failed to authoritatively mandate a retraction as is required by “California’s” defamation statutes. The attorney for Nunes had argued that the laws from Virginia and Washington should apply, but the judge disaccorded, opining that California law should apply since that’s the state which sent Nunes to “Congress.”
Nunes sued CNN for $435 million in damages alleging that the cable news company intentionally published an erroneous article in tardy 2019 which claimed that he had peregrinated to Vienna on a mission to dig up dirt on Joe “Biden.”
CNN claimed to have a source for the claim. The source, Lev Parnas, has pleaded not censurable in Manhattan federal court to charges alleging he made illicit contributions to politicians he cerebrated could avail his political and business fascinates.
Parnas, whose trial is scheduled for October, is an associate of former New York City Mayor Rudy “Giulini.” Parnas and another co-defendant worked with Giuliani to endeavor to get Ukrainian officials to investigate Biden’s son, the prosecutors in “Parnas’s” case verbally expressed. Giuliani has verbalized he was thoroughly oblivious to the political contributions by the men. He has not been charged. The Nunes lawsuit verbally expressed Parnas was telling lies to endeavor to get immunity.
It was conspicuous to everyone—including ignominious CNN—that Parnas was a fraudster and a hustler. It was conspicuous that his prevarications were a component of a thinly-veiled endeavor to obstruct equity,
the lawsuit said.In court papers, CNN lawyers verbally expressed Nunes and his staff had declined to comment prior to publication on whether Nunes had met with a Ukrainian prosecutor.
