Melania Trump’s defamation suit against a Maryland journalist is getting SLAPPed.

Webster Tarpley, who runs an eponymous news website, faced Trump’s ire after he published an article reciting rumors about her past work as a model, including that she may have worked as an escort—an allegation she denies. She sued Tarpley last month, along with the British tabloid the Daily Mail, which published similar claims.

Tarpley retracted his article in August, and apologized to Trump “for any duress and harm she may have endured.”  The Daily Mail also retracted its article about the wife of Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump.
