Judge Sets September Trial for Newsmax Case Including 2020 Election Fabrications

At the height of the 2024 campaign, a court has set a trial date for a significant defamation lawsuit against the right-wing cable channel Newsmax for late September. This puts the dispute over the 2020 election front and center.

There’s still a chance that Newsmax and the voting technology company Smartmatic will settle out of court, and more delays could happen. However, as he bids to retake the White House, the consequences of former President Donald Trump’s attempts to rig the 2020 election will be evident if the September 24 trial date is set.

Additionally, the trial would mark the first jury trial in over a dozen well-known defamation actions arising from the unfounded allegations that Smartmatic and another voting corporation, Dominion Voting Systems, manipulated the 2020.

The Newsmax trial is scheduled to occur in Delaware Superior Court, and Judge Eric Davis oversees the Newsmax-Smartmatic litigation in the same manner he handled Dominion’s historic case against Fox News last year. As the matter is still in discovery, Davis may ultimately determine that the lawsuit shouldn’t go to trial.

In 2021, Smartmatic filed a lawsuit, alleging that Newsmax deliberately disseminated false information about its involvement in election tampering because it enabled the network to narrow the ratings differential with Fox.
