Defamation

Greek yogurt titan Chobani is suing Alex Jones and his InfoWars website for defamation. The yogurt maker claims a video and Tweets from Jones falsely links the company to a sexual assault case involving three young refugees in Twin Falls.

Idaho businessman Frank VanderSloot is seeking to include a former Post Register reporter in his defamation lawsuit against Mother Jones.

The newspaper reports in a story on Tuesday that attorneys for VanderSloot have requested that Peter Zuckerman be added to the list of defendants.

VanderSloot, the CEO of direct marketing company Melaleuca, filed the lawsuit against Mother Jones in Idaho Falls' 7th District court in January 2013.
