  • Virginia Lt. Gov. Fairfax sues CBS over accuser interviews

    PBS NewsHour - 09/16/2019

    Daniel Medwed, a law professor at Northeastern University in Boston, said Fairfax could face a tough challenge.

    “There are a lot of elements you need in a defamation lawsuit to prevail, but one key is proving that the statements are false. In a case like this, where the ground truth about what happened is still very much contested between the parties, proving falsity of these statements might be an uphill climb,” Medwed said.
