Snyder argues for continual suit against Washington City Paper


Daniel Snyder, owner of the Washington Redskins, argues that the D.C. Council should not have passed a new law that could potentially dismiss his million-dollar defamation lawsuit against the Washington City Paper. In a statement, Snyder’s lawyers report that, “D.C. Council may make no law with respect to the manner in which the D.C. Superior Court conducts its affairs.” Snyder’s lawsuit is aimed at three statements made in an article by Dave McKenna. Snyder’s lawyers state that McKenna knowingly published false statements, writing that Snyder used Agent Orange to remove trees on protected federal lands, was caught forging names and was also removed from the Six Flags board. The judge is currently deciding whether or not to dismiss Snyder’s lawsuit under the Anti-Strategic Lawsuits Against Public Participation law. The Washington City Paper argues that readers could “differentiate factual statements from hyperbole.”
