U.S. Judge Scorches Sarah Palin Over Her Failed Lawsuit Attempt

Published

U.S. District Judge Jed Rakoff called out former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin over her attempt to sue the New York Times on defamation allegations.

“At trial, plaintiff Sarah Palin wholly failed to prove her case even to the minimum standard required by law,” Rakoff wrote.

On Monday, Palin’s legal team argued that several jurors received push notifications on their phones alerting them that judge Rakoff was going to throw out the case regardless of what the jury decided. The jury subsequently agreed with the judge and voted to dismiss the case.

In his written decision, Rakoff said the push alerts were “legally irrelevant.”
