Skip to comments.Wendy Davis Sued Newspaper for Damaging Her Mental Health, Future Prospects
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.

Well, what does she expect? She IS a Liberal afterall.
Talk about a Feminazi wacko
“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.
Little Wendy doesn’t take kindly to people who stand in her way. This could be quite entertaining.
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.
Oh Wah, Boohoo , Snivel, and cry. F her.
After Elizabeth Warren, I wonder how much it really takes to unravel the prospects of these crazy liberal women pols.
Thomas Eagleton (of electroshock fame) redux?
She’s already effed herself grandly, as it appears to me.
It’s bluff & stuff from hell.
She is a loser, yesterday, today and forever.
LOL! Her mental health has been in the gutter for years.
Is this evil leftist going to sue the Dallas paper which outed her as a deadbeat parent who lost her parental rights to the stepdad !
She must be real sick to lose guardianship to her ex who was not the real dad!
Wow. This is getting fun watching her carefully-crafted image fall apart.
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?
Ms. Wendy’s needs may have been covered by depends.
Another whacko liberal. Imagine that.
wah! wah! wah! wendy the whiner strikes again!
No gun for her.
Abortion Barbies sure have thin skins.
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.
Sounds like trying to steal money from a broke guy.
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!”
At least she admits she is mentally ill - its a start towards healing.
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
Wendy Davis is too nutty even for Bellevue..her campaign is now going after Abbott for trying to destroy her LOL..gee Wendy, could it be because your a LIAR..she is done, stick a fork in that abortion loving fruitcake..not like she had any chance of winning anyway but she belongs in a looney bin right next to Alan Grayson, they can play patty cake
We don’t say Bellevue in Texas, we say Terrell... heh
“Terrell State Hospital” was located there.
Yet another Fluke.
Sue your momma and daddy you leftist (four letter word Rush used to describe sandra fluke)... it was their flawed dna that damned you!
Oh hehe..wrong looney bin my bad
Apparently the damages were permanent.
Looser pays - end of stupid law suits.
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 thats what Ive 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.
I think she would have had a better case against the washington post or the new york times.

Obviously looking for another get rich quick scheme after milking her former husband for all he was worth.
She’s a parasite.
Oops. So I type like I speak anymore. A bummer. :) thx.
