Meghan Markle has won the defamation lawsuit against her half-sister, Samantha Markle as a judge dismissed the court case.
Recall that Samantha Markle had accused Meghan Markle of spreading “malicious lies” during the Oprah Winfrey interview in 2021
Samantha Markle alleged in the legal document that Meghan Markle made untrue and harmful remarks about her to a global audience, and that Meghan did so with the intention of concealing her own fabricated story of going from poverty to wealth.
Samantha’s lawyer told the court about Meghan Markle,
“She got caught. She was lying about her education, that she was getting all these scholarships. Her father paid for her education for goodness sakes, and she got caught with this lie. Why else is she putting her sister down? Why else is she putting her father down?
“Why else is she denying her family who has done nothing but good to her all her life? She never had a problem with them at all. She’s denying them to cover up that she made up this narrative that she went from rags to riches which is nonsense, probably not even realizing the harm she would do to her sister”.
In a new development, a Florida judge dismissed the lawsuit saying that Meghan Markle’s statements were pure opinion and “not capable of being proved false”.
The judge said:
“As a reasonable listener would understand it, Defendant merely expresses an opinion about her childhood and her relationship with her half-siblings,” the court noted.
“Thus, the Court finds that Defendant’s statement is not objectively verifiable or subject to empirical proof…. Plaintiff cannot plausibly disprove Defendant’s opinion of her own childhood.”
