Dominion Voting Systems had two goals in its defamation case against Fox News — accountability and “trying to make Dominion whole," said Justin Nelson, the lead counsel election technology company.
Both were accomplished in this settlement, he told CNN on Tuesday.
While the settlement does not stipulate that Fox’s anchors must acknowledge the lies on air, Nelson said it was a consequential outcome for the network.
The texts and emails that emerged during the litigation process from inside the Fox network were valuable, he said.
"And what today has shown is that you have to pay a price if you're telling lies.".
He said the settlement with Fox sends a "strong message" to other right-wing outlets in which Dominion has ongoing legal disputes. »
