Anti-Gay Activist Bradlee Dean Must Pay Rachel Maddow's Legal Bills In $50 Million Suit: VIDEO


Displaying an amazing amount of chutzpah, anti-gay radio host and Michele Bachmann pal Bradlee Dean last year filed a $50 million lawsuit against Rachel Maddow after the MSNBC host aired remarks he made about Muslim people wanting to kill gay people.

He claims Maddow said he supported such executions, even though she made clear in her discussion that Dean issued a later disclaimer saying he does not "call" for the killing of gay people.

There's no official word on how that lawsuit is progressing, but if news that Dean has been ordered to pay Maddow's legal bills is any indication, it is not going well for the homophobic radio personality.

From the website Bradlee Dean Info, via Joe.My.God:

Memorandum and Order Granting in Part Defendants' Motion for Attorneys' Fees and Denying Plaintiffs' Combined Motions for Reconsideration and Sanctions Entered on the Docket 6/25/12. Signed in chambers 6/25/12. Electronically filed via CaseFileXPress on counsel for the parties 6/25/12. Plaintiffs shall pay to Defendants fees and costs in the amount of $24,625.23 within thirty days.

MSNBC and The Minnesota Independent are also defendants in the suit.

  1. Bigots are highly unintelligent and supremely arrogant with the delusion that because their faith and piety is so highly superior to everyone else, they're exempt from every law -- religious and secular!

    Seems another bigot's arrogance just bit the dust!

  2. @MARLENE... gotta love that arrogance, don't cha. It's the Achilles' heel that trips them up every time.

  4. Why does the media continue to use that picture of Dean? He's now at least twice as old and twice as heavy. Last year he was invited to give prayer before session started at the MN capitol. The full wore a track suit, and then proceeded to "pray" insults at Obama, etc.

  5. Great. Pay up a-hole.

  6. Procedurally what this means is that Dean's attorneys lost on some motion they had made, and then Maddow's attorneys asked the court to repay them for the fees they incurred in responding to that motion. It is NOT an order to pay ALL her fees in the lawsuit. (That would be a LOT more than $24k.) This usually happens when the failed motion was such an outrageous request that the moving attorneys should never have filed it. In this case, it's a way to punish the plaintiff (Dean).

  7. Unfortunately the Judges in the US are mostly right wing idiots so they will reverse this decision. We need a new way of electing our Judges to ensure our Judicial system is unbiased.
