Updating the Trump/NYT Libel Suit

I wasn't quite that cynical about it; for about a nanosecond.

A clown suit and a waste of the court's time, IOW.  But it will be another basis for fundraising, and the court will dismiss it at some point, without holding the plaintiff (The President) accountable.  Because that's a very high bar to clear, and while the court hates having its time wasted, it hates even more appearing to be barring plaintiffs from seeking relief in a court of law.

So there are reasons penalties for frivolous suits seldom happen.  But it's frustrating, nonetheless.
