From the Salem News:
LAWRENCE – Republican candidate Bill Hudak withdrew his libel complaint against Democratic Congressman John Tierney this afternoon, following a judge’s ruling earlier today that he could not call witnesses to testify until after the Nov. 2 election.
The case may not be over, however. It will not be dismissed until Tierney’s lawyers decide whether to seek sanctions against Hudak for what they called “a bad-faith publicity stunt that has now backfired on him.” As a lawyer, Hudak, they noted, is an officer of the court.
Tierney’s lawyers could seek to have Hudak pay their court costs, or ask the judge to impose other sanctions.
Maybe he’ll sue the judge now. Or Tierney’s lawyers…
