Levy Firestone Muse clients Fusion GPS and CEO Glenn Simpson won a substantial victory against House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes on Friday, after US District Court Judge Liam O’Grady dismissed Nunes’ suit for $9.9 million in damages.
Fusion GPS is the firm whose leaked intelligence report came to be known as the “Steele dossier,” which helped prove Russia’s interference in the 2016 presidential election. Nunes later filed a complaint against Fusion GPS, claiming civil violations under the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations (RICO) Act. In dismissing the complaint, O’Grady wrote that it included “many rote statements of law and conclusory allegations which fall short of satisfying the pleading standard.”
