Short article on the state of defamation law

Last month, the Texas Supreme Court rejected Alex Jones’ petition to review a lower court's decision to allow a defamation lawsuit to proceed against him.  The plaintiffs in the lawsuit are some of the parents of children who died in the Sandy Hook school shooting.  

In a short interview published in Above the Law, law professor Derek Bambauer, who coauthored an amicus brief to the Texas Supreme Court arguing that the defamation claim against Jones should proceed, talks about the case and the current state of defamation law in general.  You can read the interview here.
