Preacher Suing MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow Wants ‘Leftist Judge’ Disqualified
Eriq Gardner of The Hollywood Reporter is reporting that Bradlee Dean has launched a tirade against the judge over a recent decision in his SLAPP against Rachel Maddow.
“Bradlee Dean, the heavy metal rocker-turned-radio host and conservative preacher who is suing MSNBC host Rachel Maddow for $50 million, has launched a tirade against the judge over a recent decision in the case.
Last July, Dean sued Maddow and NBCUniversal for defamation, claiming she twisted Dean’s words about wanting to see more gays and lesbians killed, in an effort to undermine former Republican presidential candidate Michele Bachmann.
Maddow tried to knock out the lawsuit on First Amendment grounds, and just before DC Superior Court Judge Joan Zeldon was about to make a ruling, Dean motioned to voluntarily withdraw the lawsuit. He then filed a new complaint in federal court in a strategic move to escape the D.C. Anti-SLAPP Act.”
