Trump’s million dollar lawsuit against CNN dismissed

Reuters reports that a federal judge has thrown out Donald Trump’s $475 million defamation lawsuit against CNN, in which the former U.S. president claimed the network’s description of his election fraud as the “big lie” associated him with Adolf Hitler. In a ruling late on Friday night, U.S. Judge Raag Singhal, who was nominated by Trump in 2019, said CNN’s words were opinion, not fact, and therefore could not be the subject of a defamation claim.
