Dismissal with prejudice of Jane Bradshaw and Melanie Goux from Rashad Richey lawsuit
Rashad Richey, political director of the Georgia Democratic Party, on Monday filed a dismissal of his libel suit against Andre Walker, author of the Georgia Politics Unfiltered, for allegedly mischaracterizing Richey’s criminal record.
See for yourself here. And here’s the background.
Don’t get terribly excited. Richey’s attorneys characterized the action as “dismissal without prejudice,” which leaves open the possibility that it could be re-filed. Moreover, the dismissal does not include the operator of Blog for Democracy, which recycled some of the information posted by Walker.
I think Mr. Galloway knows that few got excited -- terribly or otherwise -- one way or the other about such news and its subject.
But his report did make me wonder about the status of my friend Mel.
Now I do have some good news to report, and this news comes with what we call "prejudice," meaning it is over and the fat lady has sung as far as this matter goes.
