A Delaware Superior Court judge turned down both Fox News’ and Dominion Voting Systems’ requests to rule on Dominions $1.6 billion defamation case against Fox News before a trial, saying neither side had made a convincing argument on whether Fox News acted with malice. But he did rule that none of the allegations made by Fox News about rigged voting machines in the 2020 elections were legit. Judge Eric M. Davis wrote (italics and all), “The evidence developed in this civil proceeding demonstrates that [it] is CRYSTAL clear that none of the statements relating to Dominion about the 2020 election are true.” So barring a last-minute settlement, a jury will decide whether Fox acted with malice in airing the claims, and determine damages, if any. Responded a Fox News spokesperson, “This case is and always has been about the First Amendment protections of the media’s absolute right to cover the news. Fox will continue to fiercely advocate for the rights of free speech and a free press as we move into the next phase of these proceedings.”

Asked about the status of talks with Costner, MTV Studios President of Scripted Keith Cox assured the crowd, “We are very confident he will continue with the show.”
