Circuit Court Nominee Sued for Defamation

The WSJ Law Blog has details of the fascinating story, mixing tort law, procedural law, and politics all in one:

In the defamation lawsuit, [plaintiff and fellow Virginia lawyer] Spencer alleges that [judicial nominee] Getchell and a law partner, William Allcott, made a costly error in the 2005 appeal of an $8.3 million personal-injury verdict and then publicly shifted the blame for the error to Spencer in order to save his judicial nomination.
