Texas Supreme Court to hear Scripps NP Operating v. Terry Carter
The Texas Supreme Court will hear the case of Scripps NP Operating v. Terry Carter at 9 a.m. on Wednesday, Feb. 20.
Scripps NP Operating LLC alleges the 13th District Court of Appeals erred in finding a fact issue on substantial truth and reached an erroneous conclusion by treating multiple articles as a single publication.
Carter, former CEO and president of the Corpus Christi Chamber of Commerce, had sued Scripps NP over allegations of libel and related nonlibel claims based on articles published in 2008.
