Wheeler was claiming damaging defamation by Boebert which caused his political org, American Muckrakers, to lose money.
It took Judge Gavenus until the end of last week to throw the suit out, without prejudice, for the rather simple reason that it was filed in the wrong jurisdiction. Judge Gavenus said, "Go West, young man, and sue in Colorado, where your alleged bad actor actually does business." Words to that effect.
In a development, Wheeler is now fundraising on that qualified defeat, but also impressing supporters with his stick-toitiveness. He's promising to pursue Bobert in Colorado, if he can raise the money. The pitch:
Imagine the damaging information we could glean from a video deposition, under oath, of Lauren Boebert.
You can help us make this a reality by donating today.
We will get Boebert into a deposition if we can raise $5,000 this week. We are re-filing our defamation lawsuit against Boebert in Colorado. Your donation will be used against Boebert.
The funds will be used to pay the videographer, court reporter, transcription of the deposition, and other legal costs.
