Judge rules Nunes defamation lawsuit against NBCUniversal can proceed


A judge in New York has ruled that a defamation case brought against NBCUniversal by former Rep. Devin Nunes (R-California) can proceed.

In a 22-page decision, U.S. District Judge Kevin Castel wrote Nunes’ attorneys had “plausibly allege[d] actual malice” in the case, Reuters reported, noting the justice did not make a determination about the merits of the former congressman’s claim against the media company.
