Will a Judge’s Ruling Against CNN Make It Easier to Sue the Media?


A defamation suit is allowed to survive in a defeat not only for the cable news network, but also for the MPAA.
Donald Trump probably doesn’t know about it, but the guy who once said he wanted to open up libel laws will probably be quite pleased by a new ruling from a Georgia federal judge. In fact, the stakes in this case are so high we wouldn’t be surprised if it eventually lands before the U.S. Supreme Court and potentially makes it easier to sue entertainment and media outlets. There’s a reason why the Motion Picture Association of America submitted an amicus brief in this case.

The lawsuit is Davide Carbone v. Cable News Network.
