According to the suit, TMTG has alleged that a former employee of TMTG worked in tandem with the newspaper to publish an article that amplified “false criminal charges” and “exposed TMTG to public ridicule, contempt and distrust” that “injured TMTG’s business and reputation.”
From the filing:
“WaPo’s latest defamation creates an existential threat for TMTG, causing enormous loss. TMTG brings this case to recover special damages to its business and good will, actual injury to its name and reputation, and punitive damages for WaPo’s gross misconduct.”
