Palin COVID-19 tests delay libel trial against NY Times

    NEW YORK (AP) — A judge has delayed trial for former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin's defamation claims against The New York Time after she tested positive for the coronavirus three times.

    The positive tests were described to the judge by one of Palin's attorneys.

    Palin says the Times damaged her reputation with an opinion piece that falsely asserted her political rhetoric helped incite the 2011 shooting of then-Arizona U.S. Rep. Gabby Giffords.

    The newspaper conceded the wording of the editorial was flawed, but not in an intentional or reckless way.
