Court Tosses Nunes Suit Against Republican Strategist

The Fresno Bee reports:

A Virginia judge has dismissed the second of two lawsuits California Rep. Devin Nunes filed against a Republican political strategist who he claimed spread defamatory information about him leading up to his 2018 reelection campaign.

Judge John Marshall’s ruling in Virginia’s Henrico County Circuit Court dismisses Liz Mair from a case Nunes filed against her, Twitter and anonymous writers who heckled him on Twitter under the fictional personas of a cow and his mother.

Marshall previously dismissed Twitter from the lawsuit, meaning Nunes cannot sue the company in that court over the claims he raised in the case. Nunes continues to attempt to sue the Twitter personalities known as “Devin Nunes’ cow,” @DevinCow, and “Devin Nunes’ Alt-Mom,” @NunesAlt, although he has not been able to serve them with a complaint.
