    Default Lawsuit against Nancy Grace, CNN moving forward


    Lawsuit against Nancy Grace, CNN moves ahead

    A federal judge has refused to dismiss a lawsuit that claims CNN's Nancy Grace pushed the mother of a missing toddler to suicide through aggressive questioning.

    CNN and Grace argued the wrongful death lawsuit brought by Melinda Duckett's family would "severely chill" journalists' coverage of missing-persons cases. But U.S. District Judge William Terrell Hodges on Thursday denied their motion to dismiss the lawsuit.
    Duckett, 21, was on Grace's show after her son Trenton went missing from her apartment in August 2006. Grace grilled the woman, accusing her of hiding something because Duckett did not take a lie-detector test and answered vaguely regarding her whereabouts.
    Duckett fatally shot herself before the network aired the pre-taped interview.
    The family claims Grace's intense questioning caused severe emotional distress that led to the suicide. The lawsuit also claims that the decision to air the interview after her suicide caused the family to suffer severe emotional distress and media and public harassment. They are seeking a jury trial, unspecified damages more than $15,000 and punitive damages.
    Duckett family attorney Jay Paul Deratany said attorneys will begin taking testimony.
    "There is more information out there to be gleaned," said Deratany. "If Melinda had any information, Nancy Grace stopped the investigation in its track."
    Police have said Duckett is the only suspect in her son's disappearance.
    A message left Friday for an attorney representing Grace and CNN were not immediately returned.
    CNN is a division of Time Warner Inc.

    Exactly. I hope CNN and Nancy Grace countersue the family also.

    I understand how people find NG grating, although, I do like her. But that Melinda Duckett, killed her kid!! He still has not been found.

    I just wish she would have
    #1 killed herself BEFORE she took her son.
    #2 Told everyone where he was BEFORE she killed herself.

    Obviously, she was an unstable twit, NG had nothing to do with her suicide. I can't see that this lawsuit has merit.

    That's why I said "forget about this case". Even when she's right, Grace annoys the hell out of me. Bitch with a capital B.

    ITA. Nancy is often hateful and has her facts wrong a lot.

    But-a jury will never rule for the plaintiffs in this case once they get a load of that interview tape and see how evasive and dishonest Melinda Duckett came across. They will figure she killed her kid and then killed herself when she realized everyone knew. Can't hold an interviewer responsible for making someone come across as what they actually are.
