Fairfax Sues CBS For Defamation

(Richmond)- Virginia Lieutenant Governor Justin Fairfax is hitting CBS with a 400-million-dollar defamation lawsuit. The lawsuit claims the network defamed him when it broadcast interviews with two women who have accused him of sexual assault. Fairfax has denied the accusations. His accusers spoke out in interviews with CBS’ Gayle King earlier this year. The lawsuit says Fairfax took action against CBS to restore his reputation and clear his name. CBS says it stands by its reporting.
