adding this to the twitter law suit
Devin Nunes sues over ‘fake farmer’ challenge. He says dark money was behind it
BY BRIANNA CALIX
AUGUST 02, 2019 08:01 AM, UPDATED AUGUST 03, 2019 12:31 AM

Rep. Devin Nunes’ campaign is suing the people who accused the congressman of being a “fake farmer” and tried to get his ballot designation removed, alleging they conspired with “dark money” groups to injure the campaign.

The lawsuit, filed in Tulare County Superior Court on Thursday, alleges the group also targeted Nunes’ wife, Elizabeth, by seeking public records requests for her school emails that were costly to produce and resulted in harassment to innocent teachers and school administrators.

The Nunes campaign also accuses Andrew Janz’s congressional campaign of “mirroring” super PAC spending.

The lawsuit names four defendants: Paul Buxman, a Tulare County farmer; Daniel O’Connell, executive director of the Central Valley Partnership; Hope Nisly, a Reedley author and librarian; and Michael Seeley, a Los Angeles member of the political group Southern California Americans for Democratic Action.

Peter Kapetan, a personal injury and criminal defense attorney based in Fresno who is representing the Nunes campaign in the lawsuit, said it is in the early stages.

As it’s spelled out in the complaint, Kapetan said the legal action is about the “improper use of money that corrupts our political process” regardless of political affiliation.

Kapetan said he did not know whether other lawsuits were in the works.

This will be a good use of the California anti-SLAPP statute (C.C.P. sec. 425.16). Attorney's fees will be awarded to a successful defendant against the plaintiff campaign.

It is appropriate that he speak in a very low tone of voice, though. Quietly at first and then louder as he progresses through his sentences.

A plaintiff's lawyer should never say this. That's defense lawyer "drag this thing out" talk. I interpret "early stages" to mean they don't have all their ducks cows in a row.

The defense can argue lack of good faith because the plaintiff failed to moooove it along.
Edit: it does show that the suits are nothing but a bunch of BS.

Why that's udderly preposterous. Accusing the good congressman of milking this for publicity teeters on the absurd.

Nunes is represented by a small personal injury law firm that touts its success at obtaining awards in automobile accident cases.
Nunez is a frequent guest on Sunday Morning Futures with Maria Bartilomo. Will he make an appearance tomorrow?
