The defamation trial between Dominion Voting Systems and Fox News has been delayed until Tuesday, with rumors of a potential settlement in the air. Dominion has accused Fox News of spreading false information knowingly, while Fox News claims that they are protected by the First Amendment.
The trial is expected to proceed on Tuesday, with Dominion being allowed to force Rupert Murdoch and his son Lachlan to take the witness stand in court at a defamation trial later this month.
The outcome of the trial could have significant implications for both parties and the media industry as a whole. If Dominion wins the case, it would set a precedent for other companies to sue media outlets for defamation.
However, if Fox News is successful in defending itself, it could embolden media outlets to continue reporting on controversial topics without fear of facing lawsuits.
