CASE DISMISSED

Trump Suit Thrown Out Of Court

Surely the journalist Timothy O'Brien knew that when he wrote Donald Trump was only worth $250 million (as opposed to the $4 billion Trump himself claims), there would be repercussions. Not surprisingly, Trump sued the journalist for defamation. On Wednesday a New Jersey judge dismissed the case, saying that there was no evidence of "actual malice" in the estimate of the real-estate mogul's fortune in O'Brien's book Trump Nation: The Art of Being the Donald. Trump didn't pull his punches in the failed lawsuit; his lawyers tried to portray the book publisher, Warner Books, as an accomplice.
