Wendy Davis Sued Newspaper for Damaging Her Mental Health, Future Prospects
Breitbart ^ | 01 January 2014 | John Sexton

Posted on 01/20/2014 2:43:58 PM PST by Lorianne

The story of Davis' unusual lawsuit was recounted by the San Antonio Express News Monday. The blog Sara for America has highlights:

Davis said in her lawsuit that the newspaper ran “a series of contrived and false news stories and editorials…with malicious intent.”

The lawsuit said “defamatory and libelous” remarks were made to inflict emotional distress and to deny her rights to free speech, assembly and association.

It said that “Davis has suffered and is continuing to suffer damages to her mental health, her physical health, her right to pursue public offices in the past and in the future, and to her legal career.” She sought unspecified damages, including “significant exemplary damages.”

According to National Review's Andrew Stiles, "The suit...was quickly dismissed by a district-court judge, who sustained all of the defendants’ objections, largely on the grounds that Davis had failed to present legitimate evidence to support her libel claim." She appealed it all the way to the Texas Supreme Court, losing at every turn.

I wonder who was paying the lawyer bills all this time.

Bless her heart. Such a sensitive soul to personal pain and distress for her career future. /s

Nevermind that she promotes pain and no future to the unborn.

This is one lost individual.

her right to pursue public offices in the past and in the future, and to her legal career.

Gees she is a time traveler? Going to run for an office in the past? Another wacko Lib! I guess she had imagined running for an office but knew until she got her lies in some order she would not be elected. Now that her nicely ordered lies have been exposed her dreams in the past are destroyed.

Libel is nearly impossible for a public figure to prove, especially one as intentionally controversial as this plastic bimbo.

“Davis has suffered and is continuing to suffer damages to her mental health..."

So, not only is she a congenital liar, she's now crazy too?

I guess that means she'll be throwing in the towel in the Texas gubernatorial race any day now, right?

Reading the docs from her "lawsuit", I thought, stupid whiny, b*tch. How could she possibly think that such a lameass lawsuit had any merit? I guess she was out of older men to pay her bills, and thought she'd gin up some bucks with her frivolous suit.

So a newspaper essentially permanently damaged her mental health and she wants to run for governor of Texas...

This whole saga is getting so weird, she might get elected just for the entertainment value.

Remember the lawsuit was back in 1996 when she was defeated for city council. City Council!

I think she saw a possible merit in lawsuit because she was trained at Harvard.

As Shakespeare would say, “Let’s kill all the lawyers!”

What more would you expect from a wench that filed for divorce from her Attorney Husband 13 years her senior the day after he makes her last student loan Payment.

Not only did he find out what she is, but also how much she cost

Annnd she lied again. From the KSAT story

” And I knew then that I was going to have to work my way up and out of that life if I was going to give my daughter a better life and a better future and that’s what I’ve done,” “

Who knew that finding a man 13 years older to support her & her child (whom she abandoned with her second husband) was “work”? Well, maybe “working her way up” as she put it. Some girls have been known to put it that way.

She’s not a very bright lawyer. She should know that in order for a “public figure” to win at libel or slander they have to prove malice aforethought. It’s hard to get over that hurdle when you’re a politician trying to sue a “legitimate” news source that is known as being very liberal in it’s opinions.
