Better luck next time, Mooselini:
NEW YORK (AP) — The judge who presided over Sarah Palin’s libel case against The New York Times denied her request Tuesday for a new trial, saying she failed to introduce “even a speck” of evidence necessary to prove actual malice by the newspaper.
Amusingly, Mooselini thought that maybe the way to get another shot at the big bucks was to insult the judge:
Her attorneys had asked the judge to grant a new trial or disqualify himself as biased against her, citing several evidentiary rulings by Rakoff that they said were errors. Those ranged from how the questioning of jurors occurred during jury selection, to how jurors were instructed when they asked questions during deliberations.
“In actuality, none of these was erroneous, let alone a basis for granting Palin a new trial,” the judge said.
Mooselini is also for Congress in Alaska to replace the late Don Young (there’s only one Representative from Alaska), so she has that workin’ for her as a back-up plan. That’s almost like having a job, I guess. Caucus of one, but she could have lunch every day with Lisa Murkowski…
