The New York Supreme Court on Thursday sided with Project Veritas in its lawsuit against the New York Times.
Project Veritas will be permitted to depose the New York Times.
A motion for a stay was denied.
Project Veritas sued the New York Times for claiming their Minnesota ballot harvesting video was “deceptive.”
The New York Times tried to dismiss the case but the New York Supreme Court denied their motion, ruling terms “deceptive” and “disinformation” apply to the New York Times reporters’ actions and claims.
The Court blasted the Times in an opinion:
“Here, having failed to convince the Court that [Project Veritas’] case should be dismissed, [The New York Times] also failed to demonstrate the extraordinary justification required for the imposition of the drastic remedy of a stay pending appeal.”
The Court also said that “despite the fact that the NY Times has been permitted to file anti-SLAPP motions to dismiss for decades, the NY Times failed to cite any cases in which an unsuccessful moving was granted a stay pending appeal.”
“Ladies and gentlemen: Let the depositions begin. Stay tuned. We’re about to drop the first New York Times deposition any day,” Project Veritas founder James O’Keefe said on Thursday.
