  • I knew there was something suspicious about him when he was personally hawking pillows on Channel 57.1.

    Like Rudy and Sidney, I'm positive he's good for the $1.3 billion (if all pay, that's $433 million each). He's reportedly looking forward to the trial.Heck, Stormy Daniels's case was thrown out.

  • In reply to jack:

    Stormy Daniels couldn't collect because Trump paid his pillow-talk companion for a non-disclosure agreement. Pillow-talker Mike Lindell did not plan ahead that well.

  • In reply to jnorto:

    Nope. Reports are that the retweet was not sufficiently defamatory. 9th Cir. "unpublished" opinion.

  • In reply to jack:

    You are right. The 9th Circuit affirmed dismissal of Stormy Daniel's suit as not sufficiently defamatory. But it won't have much impact on Mike Lindell's suit since the 9th Circuit applied Texas law in reaching its conclusion, not the 1st Amendment. "Under Texas law, a statement that merely interprets disclosed facts is an opinion, and, as noted, statements of opinion cannot form the basis of a defamation claim."

  • In reply to jnorto:

    1. On page 5: "Under Texas law, as informed by the Supreme Court’s First Amendment jurisprudence...“" BTW, this opinion doesn't enlighten on why Texas law applies, other than to say that the District Court was correct.
    2. The Most Holy Lindell apparently is defending on the truth of the assertion, as it is reported: "Lindell ...welcomed the lawsuit and said the discovery process will prove him right.

    "It's a very good day. I've been looking forward to them finally suing," said Lindell..."

  • In reply to jack:

    Why does Texas law apply? That gets complicated. The defamation suit was in federal court because of diversity of citizenship: Clifford (Daniels) resided in Texas and Trump in New York. It was filed in federal court in NY, but NY law would apply Texas law to the legal question, not NY You can read more on this in the District Court (for the Central District of California!) opinion.

  • In reply to jnorto:

    Thanks. Somehow, I couldn't find the cite.

  • In reply to jack:

    As for Lindell welcoming the lawsuit, it is very common for people who are defendants in civil or white collar criminal cases to issue press releases declaring that they look forward to "proving my case," "exposing the truth," being vindicated" and "clearing my name." I would expect that lawyers regularly handling these cases have Word files filled with blustery disclaimers. These statements may make the defendant and his supporters feel better, but they have little other effect.

  • Has anyone else noticed how quiet the national scene seems now? After the Trump era, quiet competence seems almost boring, even though there are important issues surrounding us.

  • In reply to jnorto:

    Maybe on the executive and judicial branch sides, but with stuff like the insurrectionists lplanning to bomb the Capitol and members of Congress talking likke idiots (as tracked by AW), nope. There's also "the virus," and while I'm still waiting for a response from a Cook County website, I got a shot from a health system.
