Judge Denies Sarah Palin’s Bid For New Libel Trial

From a story on axios.com by Dorian Geiger headlined “Judge denies Sarah Palin’s bid for new libel trial”:

A judge has denied Sarah Palin’s bid for a new trial in the defamation case against the New York Times, according to a written decision filed Tuesday.

Why it matters: U.S. District Judge Jed S. Rakoff ruled that Palin failed to show “even a speck” of evidence needed to satisfy any burden of proof that the New York Times defamed her in 2017 regarding an op-ed piece which erroneously linked her political rhetoric to the shooting of Arizona Rep. Gabby Giffords.
