Donald Trump is shot down in defamation suit

When veteran New York Times editor Timothy L. O'Brien had the nerve to write a book, TrumpNation, arguing, based on meticulous research, that Donald Trump's net worth was a lot lower than he claims it is, the Donald threw a predictable hissy fit.

Being the litigious creep that he is, Trump sued O'Brien for defamation, but that lawsuit was tossed out by Camden County superior court judge Michele Fox yesterday. In a statement, the author said, "I am deeply gratified that the court's decision has vindicated the reporting in TrumpNation." In a separate statement, publisher Hachette said that "We are gratified that the court has granted summary judgment dismissing Mr. Trump's meritless libel lawsuit."
