Carter Page, a former Trump adviser, was just dealt a surprise by the Supreme Court.
Page sued the DNC for defamation, but the suit had been dismissed at the lower court level on procedural grounds.
Page was hoping to get a formal review by the Supreme Court, but the court turned him down, basically ending any hopes he had to take action against the DCN.
The lawsuit by Page alleged that while he was working for the Trump campaign, “a DNC subsidiary company, the law firm of Perkins Coie, and two Perkins partners – Michael Sussman and Marc Elias – of disseminating false information about the adviser,” according to Just the News.
The case was dismissed outright on procedural grounds.
After appealing to a number of lower courts, the case had not been further reviewed.
The Supreme Court was Page’s last hope, but that has now gone by the wayside.
The case was centered around the Steele dossier, which we now know had false information regarding Page.
That document was bankrolled by both the Hillary campaign and the DNC, hence the lawsuit.
Page’s complaint stated that the dossier had “mobilized the news media against Dr. Page, damaging his reputation, and effectively destroying his once-private life.”
My best guess here is that the court members knew if they took this case, it would be treated like a political football by Democrats, so better just to let it go, especially since it had been declined at every level in the lower courts.
Even so, it is a bit of a crushing blow for Page, but it is a significant win for Hillary and the DNC in terms of dodging a PR nightmare.
Are you surprised the Supreme Court refused to hear this case?
