Federal judge strikes down claims against Sarah Palin in lawsuit filed by activist Chip Thoma

September 27, 2012

U.S District Judge Timothy Burgess granted Palin’s request for summary judgment, finding that activist Chip Thoma failed to provide the evidence necessary to support his claims. Palins attorney, John Tiemessen, said the ruling means that, as a matter of law, no valid claims stand, and it should lead to dismissal of the case.

Thoma sued for at least $100,000, claiming that Palin, while governor, undertook an effort to punish, embarrass, discredit and silence him after he complained about tour bus traffic around the mansion following her failed 2008 vice presidential bid.

    The full article states the only evidence he provided was his own affidavit. Wow.

    More and more we see new reasons why there needs to be a change in the laws to include something along the lines of ‘loser pays’.
