Meghan Markle is resisting versus half-sister Samantha Markle‘s disparagement suit.
In court files acquired by E! News, the Duchess of Sussex submitted to dismiss the “meritless defamation case,” declaring the “dispute has no place in this court or any other.”
Meghan’s group argued in court files that Samantha is asking a court to adjudicate whether she and Meghan “had ever ‘been close,’ how many times the two ‘crossed paths’ as adults and whether Meghan’s feelings that she ‘grew up as an only child’ are ‘true’ or false.'”
“We do not empanel juries to rule on whether two people are ‘close,’ or whether one genuinely feels that they ‘grew up as an only child,'” the court files mentioned. “Courts are not equipped to adjudicate the legitimacy of a person’s feelings about their childhood and relationships. Nor should they be.”
Meghan and her lawyers later on argued that Samantha’s grievance “does not state a claim for defamation or injurious falsehood.” They asked the court to dismiss the case and have Meghan get lawyer’s costs and expenses in connection with the case.
