Media mogul Rupert Murdoch engaged

Lawyers for Dominion Voting Systems argued Tuesday that its defamation case against Fox News is so strong that a trial isn’t needed, and the judge followed up with some challenging questions for the right-wing outlet during an all-day courtroom clash. Both sides were in court for a major hearing, where they tried to persuade Delaware Superior Court Judge Eric Davis to to grant “summary judgment” — and decide the case in their favor now, instead of proceeding to a scheduled jury trial next month. The proceedings went longer than expected due to prolonged procedural arguments in the morning and will resume Wednesday morning. It’s unclear when the judge will issue a ruling, and there is a high bar for either side to prevail at this stage.
