Sean Hannity, Tucker Carlson To Be Hauled For Deposition In Dominion Lawsuit

Sean Hannity and Tucker Carlson

Several Fox News hosts and staffers are among the individuals who are slated to be deposed as part of Dominion Voting Systems’ $1.6 billion defamation lawsuit against the conservative network for falsely suggesting the voting machine company engaged in fraud during the 2020 election.

Sean Hannity, Tucker Carlson, and former Fox host Lou Dobbs are among the Fox hosts set to face questions on Friday from Dominion’s lawyers, The New York Times reported.

Other top Fox personalities including Jeanine Pirro and Steve Doocy have already faced questions from Dominion’s attorneys in the case, according to the Times, and Fox News Media CEO Suzanne Scott and other top editorial leaders at the network are expected to be deposed in the coming weeks as well.

In the lawsuit, Dominion’s lawyers argue that Fox News owner Rupert Murdoch and other leaders at the cable giant knowingly allowed the network to air false claims of voter fraud, saying they “decided to promote former President Trump’s narrative after Trump’s condemnation of Fox damaged its stock and viewership.”

Fox filed a motion to have the case dismissed on First Amendment grounds. But a Delaware Superior Court judge in June ruled the case against Fox could proceed.

As reported by The Times, the case is likely headed for a jury trial as there has been no discussion of a settlement in the case from either party.
