Judge Sanctions Fox News for Withholding Evidence in Dominion Lawsuit
Delaware Superior Court Judge Eric Davis sanctioned Fox News and its parent company, Fox Corp., for withholding evidence in the Dominion defamation suit and said he's considering further investigation and censure.
According to the testimony by Abby Grossberg, former Tucker Carlson producer, Fox News allegedly has never-before-heard recordings of Rudy Giuliani and other Trump allies admitting there was no proof of voter fraud in the 2020 election. She testified under oath that she personally produced those recordings for the network, and that Fox News failed to turn them over to Dominion during the discovery portion of the trial.
The recordings include a December 2020 conversation between Grossberg, Fox News pundit Maria Bartiromo, and someone described as a “high-ranking advisor to and spokesperson for President Trump and the Trump 2020 presidential campaign.” The campaign official, according to the amended complaint, admitted “there were in fact no issues” with any purportedly fraudulent voting machines in Georgia.
The surprise evidence and sanction come days before the trial is scheduled to begin in the $1.6 billion defamation case Dominion Voting Systems filed against Fox News and Fox Corp.
The judge's sanction gives Dominion a chance to conduct another deposition, at Fox’s expense.
