Disappointing. At least she did apologize.

Think she should still be dismissed - her credibility has been destroyed.

Considering there are so many progressive/statist/activist left wing Judge's the dismissal didn't/doesn't surprise me.

Kudo's for those that tried.

We watched PVC's interview with Tucker Carlson. It was really good.

Philip said the judge who dismissed their trial case was an Obama appointee who found their claim to be without merit because he didn't like VCDL's responses to Couric's question. As the appeal will be heard by the 4th circuit, which is rabidly anti-gun (and very liberal), what are the chances that these folks will be (any more) impartial?

There are a couple on that court that are decent understanding people. Depends on the panel they get.

From PVC:

The VCDL Board of Directors, after careful consideration, has decided that the recent ruling dismissing the VCDL case against Katie Couric, et al, CANNOT STAND!

The lawsuit has far reaching implications for all Americans. If the media can be allowed to change a person's words to suit the media's own needs or beliefs, then a grievous blow will have been struck against the very core of the freedom that the United States stands for!

NO! We are going to fight this because too much is at stake.

Today, I have directed VCDL's attorneys to move forward with the appeal to the U.S. 4th Circuit Court of Appeals, where it will be heard by a three-judge panel "de novo" (which means the merits of the case will be heard anew with no consideration of the judge's ruling that recently dismissed the case).

Unfortunately fighting this kind of battle in court is not cheap, including the appeals process, for which we now have to budget. But the nature of the ruling is so dangerous to our liberty that VCDL must stay in the fight and prevail!

VCDL rarely asks for money other than your yearly $25 dues. But when we do, we make sure you understand why we are asking.

Thank you in advance for any help you can provide!

You will be updated whenever there is breaking news on VCDL's lawsuit.

Those of us who aren't a part of that system don't know what "not cheap" means. Can they at least tell us how many zeros?
