Sarah Palin Sarah Palin’s lawsuit against The New York Times will soon head to court as jury selection begins January 24 in the four-year-old libel case.
Palin sued the publication over allegations of being defamed in 2017 by an editorial that linked a political action committee ad to a 2011 shooting that included serious injuries to then-Arizona Democratic Rep. Gabby Giffords and killed six others.
U.S. District Court Judge Jed Rakoff on Tuesday set January 24 as the selection date for jurors in the case to be set in Manhattan, according to The Hollywood Reporter .
“Palin is represented by a legal team led by Shane Vogt at Bajo Cuva Cohen Turkel while The New York Times is being handled by a team including David A. Schulz at Ballard Spahr,” according to the report.
“The initial version of the 2017 Times editorial said it was ‘clear’ that the 2011 shooting was linked to a map Palin’s political action committee released that included crosshairs over Giffords’ Tucson district.

They’re Trying to Shut Us Down
Over the last several months, I’ve lost count of how many times the powers-that-be have tried to shut us down. They’ve sent hackers at us, forcing us to take extreme measures on web security. They sent attorneys after us, but thankfully we’re not easily intimidated by baseless accusations or threats. They’ve even gone so far as to make physical threats. Those can actually be a bit worrisome but Remington has me covered.
For us to continue to deliver the truth that Americans need to read and hear, we ask you, our amazing audience, for financial assistance. We just launched a GiveSendGo page to help us pay the bills. It’s brand new so don’t be discouraged by the lack of donations there. It’s a funny reality that the fewer the donations that have been made, the less likely people are willing to donate to it. One would think this is counterintuitive, but sometimes people are skeptical because they think that perhaps there’s a reason others haven’t been donating. In our situation, we’re just getting started so please don’t be shy if you have the means to help.
Thank you and God bless!
