Judith Regan has announced she’s launching a $100 million defamation suit against News Corp.
Her 70-page legal complaint can be found via Portfolio mag’s Mixed Media and through the New York Times. 70 pages is a lot to parse. Since FBNY understands that our readers are sane, normal people who don’t want to read this nonsense, we’re going to do some service journalism and recount the highlights to you. The bats**t insane Cliff Notes of the Judy Regan lawsuit, if you will:
Regardless of the facts and substance behind these allegations (and the whole thing is making our head spin.. it’s like some kind of sad, pathetic satire times 100), the legal complaint is a classic. Jeff Bercovici pointed out at Portfolio that section headings included “Defendants Set Up Regan as the Scapegoat for the OJ Controversy as Part of Their Smear Campaign” and “News Corp.’s Double Standard for Men and Women.”
As Regan’s Jewish best friends say, oy vey.
