Appeal, stall, appeal again. Drag it out until he dies.
Or pull a TFG - declare bankruptcy and flip him off on the way to start a new PAC.

How do you lose a defamation lawsuit by telling the truth?

Dude, don't harsh my mellow here. I'm still feeling good from the week Trump just had, don't take that from me with this shait.

Murkanen: How do you lose a defamation lawsuit by telling the truth?


Points to the part where it says "Alabama" and "Democratic super PAC"
 
2022-08-13 10:57:28 AM  
Yeah, they can win that on appeal. Would bet money on it. Sounds like Moore just got lucky with a jury that was stigginit to the dems.

This piece of shiate needs to be sued for his many misdeeds to get that, and more money, back. Him being obscenely wealthy can't be tolerated.

Karma Chameleon: Wow $8.2 million can buy a whole lot of children to rape


Hopefully, someone is keeping track of the kids that Abbott/Paxton are putting on buses and shipping around the country.

I have a feeling that quite a few will be "unaccounted for" just like they were at the start of TFGs administration, which of course, was never followed up on and now all those kids are probably in the sex trade or dead.

"We're very thankful to God for an opportunity to help restore my reputation which was severely damaged by the 2017 election," Moore said in a telephone interview.

What farking reputation? Will people think that just because you used to go to the mall so often to hit on teenage girls that they had to ask you not to come back, that you're some sort of creep or something? It's outrageous!
 
2022-08-13 11:06:15 AM  
That's funny. I always thought falsity of the statement was a bedrock requirement for defamation.

I guess they really do things differently in Alabama.

Judge also probably farks kids like Roy Moore does.

I wonder if he is also going to sue AL Governor Kay Ivey who pubicly stated that she believed the allegations.

Probably not since she endorsed him anyway arguing that better a pedophile in the Senate than a Democrat.
 
2022-08-13 11:14:50 AM  
Wait.  I bet a dumb Alabama jury thought this was about "defecation" not "defamation".

Meanwhile he's a target for every comedian and jokester on the planet.

I assume the jury awarded $8 million because that's what he would have made in kickbacks during his first term?

Man if we sued every political ad that defamed someone's character, we'd have no political ads. Which, uh, sounds like a pretty good idea.

No.  It can be quite expensive.  If he can't show a blood relation Alabama culture and heritage requires a pretty large payment to their daddy for the privilege.

nytmare: Man if we sued every political ad that defamed someone's character, we'd have no political ads. Which, uh, sounds like a pretty good idea.


maybe it can be turned on its face.

Here in GA they are running a lot of ads with clips of Herschel Walker saying he was a cop, secret agent, graduated college, graduated in top 1% of his class in college...

If Walker starts to claim the ads are false, you can ask him when is he going to file the defamation suit?

If they are lies, then it should be easy money, so why is he not suing for defamation if they are false?

If he says "yes" the courts can have some fun, if he says "no" attack as soft on crime or being a wimp.

/maybe some states have different statues for defamation?

As tempting as that sounds to run TFG's playbook against Mr. Moore, I respectfully disagree.  Let the ruling stand.

And then use it as precedence and sue every single conservative talking head, PAC, spokesperson and/or organization they work for that says something even mildly defamatory.

Like when Roy Moore referred to Native Americans and Asian Americans as "reds and yellows" in 2017.

Or when TFG says the election was stolen, because isn't he defaming all of the poll watcher by questioning their integrity?

Or whenever MGT opens her mouth.

so the misleading info was that he only started grooming her at 14 and didn't date her until 16. got it. technically incorrect is the best kind of incorrect I suppose.

I read the article and am confused as to why this it's libel.  Is it because he just asked out teen girls at the mall, he didn't "ask them for sex?"  This seems like a distinction without a difference.

Is it that he was never officially banned, just told to 'never come back' by a security guard?

Can we just stop all lies in campaigns. Partly because it's unethical, but mostly because I want to watch a Republican stand there in a 30 minute debate and say nothing.

"Moore, a former Republican judge known for his hardline stances..."

Did he leave the GOP, or should this have been written "...a Republican former judge...".  Klunky phrasing, but more accurate.  Got my hopes up for some more GOP craziness in Alabama if Roy had left the Party but stayed around to screw things up.  I'm sure GOP managment wants him to leave, but the rank and file Karens love him.
