Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) has had yet another lawsuit tossed out of court. This one was aimed at CNN and sought $435 million in damages, according to The Hill:
“U.S. District Court Judge Laura Taylor Swain threw out the suit, which sought $435 million in damages, on a technicality. Nunes’s legal team argued that the court should apply the laws of Virginia or Washington, D.C. to the case, while Swain said the laws of Nunes’s home state of California should be applied.
“’Plaintiff … argues that, if the Court were to look to the place where he suffered the greatest injury, the laws of either Virginia or the District of Columbia should apply because that is where he performs his role overseeing the activities of the Intelligence Community,’ Swain, a Clinton appointee, wrote in her ruling.”
In the past, the litigious congressman has sued a fake cow whom Nunes asserted was harassing him on Twitter. That lawsuit was also thrown out of court.
Twitter quickly lit up with mockery and ridicule for Nunes:
So it was just a publicity stunt after all? Shameful behavior for a <checks notes> Medal of Freedom recipient.

Devin Nunes is not a lawyer. I believe one of his cows might be. https://t.co/yrMGZj3vjC

Nunes fails at behaving normally – every damn day.
I’ll bet he sued his mom for making him eat his dinner.

I bet Nunes is having a COW over this decision.
Thank you, everyone, two shows on Thursday!

CNN should sue for the same amount for wasting theirs and everyone else time. 😛
