NEW YORK (ALBOENEWS) — A Federal Judge dismissed a defamation suit filed by former Vice Presidential candidate Sarah Palin on Tuesday.

According to TIME, Judge Jed Rakoff said in his opinion that there were indeed some factual errors in the editorial written up in the NY Times, however it was “plainly not defamation of a public figure.”

The editorial in question was “America’s Lethal Politics” published in June. The editorial originally claimed that a map was distributed by a Palin GOP PAC that depicted Democratic lawmakers in the middle of crosshairs, but it was later corrected to say that their districts were in the crosshairs.
