Donald Trump’s Steele dossier lawsuit dismissed by London court – POLITICO
LONDON — Donald Trump’s legal challenge to a “shocking and scandalous” dossier prepped by a former British spy was thrown out by a High Court judge in London Thursday.
The U.S. former president had been attempting to sue Orbis Business Intelligence, founded by ex-Secret Intelligence Service agent Christopher Steele, on data protection grounds. The firm prepared the research dossier containing unsubstantiated allegations about Trump’s personal conduct, leading to a political storm just before he was inaugurated in 2017.
But on Thursday, High Court judge Karen Steyn rejected the case put forward by Trump’s lawyers.
