Federal Court Vacates Default Judgment in Penobscot Business-Related Defamation Suit

Here are the materials in Russell v. Krowne (D. Md.):

DCT Order Vacating Default Judgment

Penoscot Indian Nation Motion for Default Judgment

Defendant Motion to Vacate

Penobscot Response to Motion to Vacate

Defendant Reply

Strange case; seems to involve a program created by Penobscot called Grant America Program, which is  home buyer down payment program, and the defendants’ website, which published internet posts calling the program a “scam.” The Nation and its allies claim defamation, and the defendants call the suit a SLAPP suit.
