Miller lost his lawsuit. Twice. The first time around, a federal judge tossed his lawsuit. In 2019, the Judge found that Springer News, a blog that is no longer in business, for accurately reporting in a 2018 article that went viral. It was titled, Court Docs Allege Ex-Trump Staffer Drugged Woman He Got Pregnant With “Abortion Pill.”
This was the second time that a Florida US District Court judge found that Miller must pay G/O Media, owner of Gizmodo, Jezebel, and additional websites, $42,000 for its legal expenses. Miller claimed the article cost him his contract with CNN as a paid political commenter.
In his second lawsuit, he tried to say that court documents from the first trial were “out of bounds.” However, a panel of 11th Circuit judges ruled these were protected documents under New York’s fair reporting privilege. They upheld the 2019 decision.
The Daily Beast reporter Roger Sollenberger tweeted:
‘A US District Judge has ordered Trump flack Jason Miller to pay Gizmodo nearly $42,000 to cover legal expenses from his failed $100 million defamation suit. The judge found Gizmodo accurately reported a court filing alleging Miller slipped an abortion pill into a woman’s smoothie.’
