Another notable defamation case had a happy ending—at least for reporters who write about litigation.

On Tuesday, a federal judge in Miami dismissed an ugly suit against Gizmodo Media Group on summary judgment—a win for an all-women defense team from Davis Wright Tremaine featuring Katherine Bolger, Elizabeth McNamara, Abigail Everdell and Jamie Raghu.

I wrote about the case in April—The Stripper, the Smoothie and the Abortion Pill—when U.S. District Judge Cecilia Altonaga denied a motion to dismiss the suit. Her  initial decision rested on minor errors in a story published on Gizmodo’s Splinter.com.

Political strategist and commentator Jason Miller, who was the communications director for President Trump’s transition team, sued Splinter after it reported on a court filing that claimed Miller impregnated a stripper in Orlando and secretly slipped her an abortion drug in a smoothie, terminating the pregnancy.
