Devin Nunes dealt a blow in his legal battle with CNN

Devn Nunes is a truly stupid person who has a truly dumb attorney. Nunes has sued a twitter cow, his local newspaper, other twitter accounts and CNN. These lawsuits are so bad that they are fun to read. CNN got a nice ruling that will expose Nunes to a SLAPP motion



According to The Hollywood Reporter, Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) was dealt a setback in his defamation suit against CNN after failing to convince a judge that the trial should be held in Virginia.

This Friday, U.S. District Court Judge Robert Payne decided the case is best adjudicated in New York.

As The Hollywood Reporter points out, Nunes is claiming $435 million in damages over what he says was a “demonstrably false hit piece” about a meeting between him and an ex-Ukrainian prosecutor to dig up dirt on Joe Biden. “CNN’s source is said to be a lawyer for Lev Parnas, an indicted associate of President Donald Trump’s own attorney Rudy Giuliani. Nunes insists he never met with the Ukrainian, didn’t tell Parnas anything of the sort, and that CNN had obvious reasons to doubt a source facing prosecution,” The Hollywood Reporter’s Eriq Gardner writes.

Nunes’ suit inspired Virginia lawmakers to pass a SLAPP bill, which makes it harder to pursue frivolous lawsuits targeting free speech.

3. Do you have an actual news source,

Rawstory is an activist blog. Not that MSNBC is any better, but still.

5. Devin Nunes' lawyer is warned about 'forum shopping' as judge moves CNN lawsuit to NY

Nunes is going to be SLAPed and it will be fun. Nunes is truly an idiot and the attorney representing Nunes has been suspended once and is on his way to being disbarred https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/politics/devin-nunes-lawyer-is-warned-about-forum-shopping-as-judge-moves-cnn-lawsuit-to-ny/ar-BB14tVRi?ocid=msedgntp

A Virginia judge on Friday moved Rep. Devin Nunes’ lawsuit against CNN to New York and wrote that there was no “logical connection” for the California congressman to sue the media company in Virginia.

The lawsuit is one of seven defamation cases Nunes and attorney Steven Biss filed since 2019 against news organizations, Twitter, his critics and the investigative research firm that created the so-called Steele dossier. Nunes, R-Calif., had filed all but two of the lawsuits in Virginia courts.

Judge Robert E. Payne, of the U.S. District Court in the Eastern District of Virginia, granted CNN’s request to move the case to the Southern District of New York. It’s the first time in the set of lawsuits that a judge has moved one of Nunes’ lawsuits to another state.

Payne also delivered two warnings to Biss.

One centered on whether the case should have been filed in Virginia in the first place. “The Eastern District of Virginia is not Nunes’ home forum, and there is no logical connection between the events in this case and this district,” Payne wrote.
