A hearing was held this morning before Judge Moon in the U.S. District Court for the District of Western Virginia in Charlottesville on motions to dismiss. The Defendants were represented by three legal teams. One represents Alex Jones. Lee Ann McAdoo, InfoWars, and Free Speech Systems. The Second represents Lee Stranahan, Jim Hoft, Scott Creighton, Michele Hickford, and Words-N-Ideas. The third team represents Allen West. All three teams stress both the facts and the law related to the case.
The Plaintiff’s attorneys spent most of their time trying explain why the case should be left standing in spite of the facts and law.
The judge did not rule from the bench, so it will be a while before we know whether the case will go forward.
I’m blogging this brief summary from a Taco Bell in Charlottesville. I’ll post a more complete report when I get home.
Meanwhile, my podcasting partner Stacy McCain (who also attended the hearing) will be reporting his observations at The Other McCain.
