Jury Rules Against Palin in New York Times Libel Case

From a Washington Post story by Elahe Izadi and Sarah Ellison headined “Jury rules against Sarah Palin in New York Times libel case”:

A jury ruled against Sarah Palin in her libel case against the New York Times, one day after the judge said he would toss out her claim, saying she had not met the high legal standard required in libel cases involving public figures and journalists.

The jury’s decision conforms with the one made by U.S. District Court Judge Jed S. Rakoff. On Monday, he told lawyers for Palin and the Times that he would formally dismiss the former Alaska governor’s claim once the jury returned its verdict.
