Democracy Partners Suit Against Project Veritas

to Move to Trial

(Washington, D.C.) Today U.S. District Judge Ellen Segal Huvelle of the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia issued a 44-page ruling denying Project Veritas’ motion for summary judgment on three claims in Democracy Partners’ lawsuit arising from the defendants’ 2016 politically motivated infiltration of Democracy Partners’ offices. Two claims were dismissed. The three surviving claims include fraudulent misrepresentation, wiretapping, and civil conspiracy. The infiltration was conducted by Veritas spy Allison Maass, posing as intern Angela Brandt, as part of a long-term sting targeting Hillary Clinton and the Democratic Party and involving multiple operatives across the country.

“We are very pleased that Democracy Partners will have the opportunity to present the facts of this case to a jury and feel confident that Project Veritas will be held accountable for the fraudulent tactics that they have used so often to debase the democratic process,” said Democracy Partners’ general counsel Joseph Sandler.
