Due to lack of supporting evidence by the plaintiffs, the Federal Judge dismissed NIAC Lobby and its lifetime president’s defamation suit against someone who accused them of doing so, period.
However, the ruling has many lessons, just a few:
1- When a lobby goes after a critic, it better have all its ducks in a row, NIAC Lobby did not.
2- When a lobby loses the case and turns around and calls it a victory, it brings into view the out of whack ethics of the lobby more than all its critics could ever have.
3- When a lobby is forced to admit to have been doing lobbying, albeit at ” 20%”, whereas it was denying doing any prior to its lawsuit against the person who was accusing them of lobbying activity, it opens the floodgates to what else they are not revealing.
If as it claims to be a “501(c)(3) non-profit education organization” , NIAC Lobby has to become transparent, stop ignoring relevant questions, threatening critics with legal actions and conducting organized smear campaigns.
