Clinton fails to respond to Benghazi lawsuit filed by victims’ parents — here’s what that could mean: https://t.co/W10ElbFnge— TheBlaze (@theblaze) September 10, 2016
...The lawsuit from Pat Smith and Charles Woods — parents of U.S. Foreign Service member Sean Smith and Navy SEAL Tyrone Woods who died in the Sept. 11, 2012, attack on the American consulate — alleges that Clinton wrongfully caused their sons’ deaths. They also sued the Democratic presidential nominee for defamation and intentional and negligent infliction of emotional distress....
Lawnewz added that, according to Federal Rules of Civil Procedure, Clinton was required to respond or file for an extension 21 days after being served — and court records show a summons was issued Aug. 9. However, the outlet noted, it’s unclear if the summons was properly served or if Clinton received it.
Both Woods and Smith also claimed Clinton defamed them in statements to the media.
“During her campaign for President, Defendant Clinton has negligently, recklessly, and/or maliciously defamed Plaintiffs by either directly calling them liars, or by strongly implying that they are liars, in order to protect and enhance her public image and intimidate and emotionally harm and silence them to not speak up about the Benghazi attack on at least four separate occasions,” the complaint reads.
