Judge Slaps Down Carter Page Lawsuit Against The DNC

Source: Talking Points Memo

In a brief but biting order, a federal judge in Oklahoma dismissed a defamation lawsuit Carter Page brought against the Democratic National Committee and its lawyers related to the involvement of the DNC’s law firm in funding the Trump-Russia dossier.

Chief Judge Joe Heaton of the Western District of Oklahoma, who is a George W. Bush appointee, said the court lacked jurisdiction over the case, given that the defendants have no relationship to Oklahoma, nor did their alleged actions.

“Plaintiff has offered nothing to suggest that the individual defendants are domiciled in Oklahoma and it appears undisputed that none of them are,” Heaton said, before critiquing Page’s arguments that the DNC has a relationship to Oklahoma, via its affiliate, the Oklahoma state Democratic Party.

“The DNC is a national organization with local affiliates throughout the United States. It cannot be ‘at home’ in every state,” the judge said.

3. Court deems pro se defamation suit ridiculous and throws it out? Unpossible!!!

Generous of the court to unnecessarily refer to him as "Dr. Page" though. That was nice of them.
