John Oliver was sued by Bob Murrary for defamation. Was it really a meritless suit or is there more to the story? If you’re in the market for a great suit, I can’t recommend Indochino highly enough and Legal Eagles get a discount! https://bit.ly/2IeeB8W

Summary from Vulture:
Remember back in 2017 when John Oliver did a Last Week Tonight segment about coal company CEO and “geriatric Dr. Evil” Bob Murray, then — as predicted — was sued by Bob Murray the following week? Oliver couldn’t discuss the lawsuit while it was ongoing, but we did get an update when the case was dismissed in February 2018, when Oliver, referencing the original segment, told Murray to “eat shit.” What you might not know, however, is that Murray appealed the case after it was dismissed, so Oliver was yet again forced into silence until the case was recently dropped. Which brings us to last night’s Last Week Tonight, when Oliver was finally free to recap the entire saga … and, in doing so, to start a whole new saga too.
