Boy, it's been a bad day for wingnuts in court today. A Texas law that prohibits social networks from curtailing wingnuttery is blocked by the Supreme Court (see below). Earlier the Durham prosecution was a dud, now this..

(AP)NEW YORK (AP) — The judge who presided over Sarah Palin’s libel case against The New York Times denied her request Tuesday for a new trial, saying she failed to introduce “even a speck” of evidence necessary to prove actual malice by the newspaper.

U.S. District Judge Jed Rakoff made the assertion in a written decision as he rejected post-trial claims from Palin’s lawyers.

Her attorneys had asked the judge to grant a new trial or disqualify himself as biased against her, citing several evidentiary rulings by Rakoff that they said were errors. Those ranged from how the questioning of jurors occurred during jury selection, to how jurors were instructed when they asked questions during deliberations.

“In actuality, none of these was erroneous, let alone a basis for granting Palin a new trial,” the judge said.



Supreme Court blocks Texas law targeting social media companies
(Yahoo Finance)The Supreme Court on Tuesday blocked a Texas law requiring social media sites to post all content that expresses a "viewpoint," in at least a temporary victory for sites like Meta’s (FB) Facebook and Instagram.

The law, HB 20, the first of its kind in the U.S., was pushed by Republican lawmakers who contend that social platforms muzzle conservative voices.
