Fox News faces new legal threat from Smartmatic

April 23, 2023

Fox News has settled a blockbuster case brought by Dominion Voting Systems, but the network’s legal headaches are not over yet. But unlike Dominion, Smartmatic is suing multiple hosts and Giuliani as individuals, in addition to Fox. Smartmatic remains committed to clearing its name, recouping the significant damage done to the company, and holding Fox accountable for undermining democracy.”A trial in the Smartmatic case would still be months away, if not years. That suit referenced claims that the businessman rigged the presidential election using Smartmatic and Dominion voting machines. Still, legal experts say the Dominion settlement could serve as another watershed moment for both Fox and media coverage of controversial matters of public debate.
