NEW YORK (AP) — A civil rights activist is suing Fox News host resume writing service ottawa enter literature review of new product development essays online to read free examples of taking notes for research paper viagra shop usa viagra 50 mg yeterli follow link see levitra owen writing service australia here human sexuality essay thesis manual tamu steps research paper theseus greek mythology movie taking viagra without ed graduation essay ideas les effet indesirable du viagra enter watch research paper references example follow site dissertation proposal cover sheet fda approves viagra click here Jeanine Pirro, claiming she defamed him while discussing a lawsuit against the Black Lives Matter movement that was later dismissed.

The lawsuit states that DeRay McKesson was falsely arrested in 2016 while attending a protest in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, in which a police officer was struck in the face with a rock and seriously injured.

The officer sued the Black Lives Matter movement and McKesson for his injuries.

After the officer’s lawsuit was dismissed, Pirro “made a series of outrageously false and defamatory statements about Mr. McKesson, including that he directed someone to hit the police officer in the face with a rock,” McKesson’s lawsuit said.

Pirro’s statements, which were made during an appearance on the Fox News show “Fox & Friends,” were extremely dangerous and continue to endanger McKesson, the lawsuit said.

Fox News said Pirro’s statements are protected speech.

“We informed Mr. McKesson’s counsel that our commentary was fully protected under the First Amendment and the privilege for reports of judicial proceedings. We will defend this case vigorously,” the statement said.

The suit, which also names Fox News Network, was filed in New York on Tuesday.

Last month, Pirro, a former Westchester County district attorney and host of the Fox News Channel show “Justice with Judge Jeanine,” was issued a speeding ticket for driving 119 mph (192 kph) in a 65 mph (105 kph) zone in upstate New York.
