I’m not talking about the suits Ms. Grace wears.Ã‚Â The lawsuit against Nancy Grace over the suicide of Melinda Duckett is being allowed to go to trial.
A judge has ruled that a wrongful death lawsuit claiming that CNN’s Nancy Grace pushed the mother of a missing toddler to suicide through aggressive questioning on her show will be tried in federal court.
. . .
Grace grilled Duckett on Grace’s CNN Headline News show in September 2006 about the disappearance of Duckett’s 2-year-old son, Trenton. Duckett fatally shot herself before the network aired the pre-taped interview.
This will be interesting to see how it turns out.Ã‚Â I thought Ms. Grace was unusually obnoxious, even for her, in this interview.Ã‚Â I don’t know that I would have killed myself over it, but for her and her producers to say they had nothing to do with adding to the stress Ms. Duckett felt is absurd.Ã‚Â And stress reaction is what suicide is all about.Ã‚Â Did Ms. Grace cause Ms. Duckett to suicide?Ã‚Â Well, we don’t know, but even I find that improbable.Ã‚Â Did Ms. Grace contribute?Ã‚Â It sure looks that way to me.Ã‚Â Now we’ll let it go through the court system.Ã‚Â At least, until CNN settles out of court while admitting no wrong-doing.
