Bulldog Defends Zimmerman Lawsuit

HomeBulldog in the NewsBulldog Defends Zimmerman Lawsuit

The Austin Bulldog has moved to dismiss District 6 candidate Don Zimmerman’s libel lawsuit under Texas’ anti-SLAPP law, the Texas Citizen Participation Act.

The Austin Bulldog argues that Zimmerman’s lawsuit should be promptly dismissed because The Austin Bulldog article and the accompanying e-mail News Alert were accurate reports of the abuse allegations made against him in the judicial proceedings that led to Zimmerman losing all legal right of custody or access to his only daughter.

A copy of The Austin Bulldog’s motion can be found here: Defendant’s Motion to Dismiss Pursuant to Chapter 278, Texas Civil Practices and Remedies Code (113 pages with Exhibits)

Defendant’s Motion to Dismiss Pursuant to Chapter 278, Texas Civil Practices and Remedies Code (22 pages without Exhibits)

If Zimmerman files a response to The Austin Bulldog’s motion, we will post it as well.
