    Default Sarah Palin set to battle New York Times at defamation trial

    It has been 58 years since the U.S. Supreme Court adopted the "actual malice" standard in the landmark decision called New York Times v. Sullivan, which made it difficult for public figures to win libel lawsuits.

    Don Herzog, a University of Michigan law professor, said Palin would have trouble showing that the Times "subjectively doubted or disbelieved" the truth of what it presented as fact.

    This is news?

    Okay...well, I will wait for the court's decision.

    And then I will probably barely care no matter what they decide.

    She has to prove the NY Times deliberately sought to harm her.

    Yup. I'm not even sure why The Times did a retraction.

    It will be cool to get the Kewpie Doll on the stand and present her with the evidence above.

    Missy Palen is long overdue to be consulted with a mental health doctor for treatment at dealing with her obvious mental issues.

    This is very interesting to me, from my understanding, from the little bit I’ve read about the case, The evidence is that the New York Times made a mistake, and retracted it as soon as they were made aware of it. The law is that a simple mistake is not actionable, Sarah Palin must prove malice on the part of the New York Times, and I think that is going to be a very difficult burden for her based on these facts

    Palin has to prove any harm was intentional. Let alone that she was harmed.

    Yes, I think she loses. I don’t think she cares, this is being paid for by outside groups, and her whole point is that the New York Times sometimes makes mistakes. I already knew that.
