In New York today, a judge rejected a lawsuit brought against Fox News by the parents of Seth Rich, a Democratic National Committee staff member who was killed in 2016.
In delivering Thursday's ruling, U.S. District Judge George Daniels said he understood that Joel and Mary Rich may feel their son's death was exploited for political ends, but said their lawsuit lacked specific instances of wrongdoing that were needed for the case to proceed to trial.
In the March lawsuit, the parents said that Fox News turned the death of their son, Seth Rich, into a "political football" by claiming he had leaked DNC emails to Wikileaks during the presidential campaign.
The 27-year-old Rich was killed in what Washington police believe was a random robbery attempt.
The judge also dismissed a related suit by a private investigator.
