A D.C. District Court Judge dismissed a lawsuit brought by Reps. Eric Swalwell (D-Calif.) and Bennie Thompson against Rudy Giuliani and Donald Trump Jr.
The judge allowed the case to go forward against Trump, Tarrio and the Oath Keepers were denied.
In lawsuits filed by Reps. Eric Swalwell (D-Calif.) and Bennie Thompson (D-Miss.) to hold Donald Trump and allies liable for damages stemming from Jan. 6, a judge has dismissed the cases against two defendants — Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani and former first son Donald Trump Jr. — while allowing most parts of the cases against the former president to proceed.
D.C. District Court Judge Amit P. Mehta, an Obama appointee, issued the 112-page ruling earlier this month on three Jan. 6 lawsuits involving former President Trump and his allies. In his ruling, Mehta accused Trump supporters of being ready to participate in violent actions on behalf of the former president.
In Thompson v. Trump, 11 members of the House of Representatives and two Capitol Police officers were seeking damages from former President Trump, Trump Jr., attorney Giuliani, Rep. Mo Brooks (R-Ala.) and far-right groups such as the Proud Boys and its leader Enrique Tarrio for physical injuries and emotional distress linked to Jan. 6.
Motions to dismiss by Giuliani and Trump Jr. were granted by Mehta, but the motions of former President Trump, Tarrio and the Oath Keepers were denied.
