A touch disappointing for everyone who wanted to see Dominion open up Fox’s entrails and examine them in open court, but not entirely surprising:
The judge in the Fox News defamation case said on Tuesday that the case was resolved, abruptly ending a long-running dispute over misinformation in the 2020 election just as a highly anticipated trial was about to begin.
It was a last-minute end to a case that began two years ago and after the disclosure of hundreds of thousands of pages of documents that peeled back the curtain on a media company that has long resisted outside scrutiny.
Details of the settlement were not yet known.
I assume that the terms in their general shape will leak at some point in the not too distant future.
[PC] Per Dominion’s lawyers, the settlement includes a $787 million dollar payment from Fox to Dominion. No word yet on other terms, if any.
