Click here to listen: The Smartmatic v. Fox News Edition – February 18, 2021
In the most recent edition of the Chicago Bar Association’s podcast, host Jonathan Amarilio and co-host Trisha Rich are joined by J. Erik Connolly to discuss the $2.7 billion defamation lawsuit he recently brought against Fox News, Rudy Giuliani, Sydney Powell and others, on behalf of his client, Smartmatic, an election technology company. They talk about the disinformation spread by the defendants in the wake of the 2020 presidential election, the lawsuit brought to end that disinformation campaign, the role defamation lawsuits have in holding to account purveyors of disinformation, and more.
