NEW YORK, March 8 (Reuters) – A New York state judge on Tuesday said Smartmatic can pursue its $2.7 billion defamation lawsuit claiming that Fox News Network, Rudolph Giuliani and others falsely accused the electronic voting systems maker of helping rig the 2020 U.S. presidential election to favor Democrat Joe Biden.
Justice David Cohen of New York State Supreme Court in Manhattan rejected bids by Rupert Murdoch’s Fox Corp (FOXA.O), anchor Maria Bartiromo and former anchor Lou Dobbs to dismiss Smartmatic’s claims against them.
The article goes on to state the following:
Cohen also said Smartmatic can pursue some claims against Giuliani, who worked as a lawyer for former Republican President Donald Trump. He dismissed all claims against Fox host Jeanine Pirro and former Trump lawyer Sidney Powell.
The report explains that Smartmatic accused the defendants of turning it into a “villain” and claimed they “fabricated” a story that its machines helped Biden steal the 2020 election.
Smartmatic’s lawyer claimed Fox News caused “catastrophic damage” to the company’s business and reputation.
Fox News said they will appeal the judge’s decision and dismissed Smartmatic’s allegations as “baseless.”
Another voting machine company, Dominion, has also filed a $1.6 billion lawsuit against Fox News.
