Project Veritas Gets Huge Win

In a major victory for the good guys, the New York Supreme Court ruled that Project Veritas can continue with its defamation lawsuit against The New York Times, after tossing a motion to dismiss by the newspaper. The suit was brought against The Times after it published five articles blasting a Project Veritas video relating to improprieties of ballot harvesting in Minneapolis as fake news.

The Times filed a motion to dismiss on two basis–one was the standard failure to state a claim and the other was a invoking SLAP (Strategic Lawsuit Against Public Participation) legislation. It is an unfortunate, but unknown reality of litigation that SLAP lawsuits are basically a method for rich clients to silence their critics. David Freiheit brings us more details on the ruling in this edition of Viva Frei.
