(Hollywood Reporter) A judge concludes that a scene where gun rights advocates were shown in silence to a question was neither false nor carried any harmful implication.
A Virginia judge has just shot down a $13 million lawsuit against Katie Couric, Stephanie Soechtig, Epix and others associated with the documentary Under the Gun.
The film, which premiered at the Sundance Film Festival in January, provoked controversy because of one scene in particular. In it, Couric asks gun rights advocates, “If there are no background checks for gun purchasers, how do you prevent felons or terrorists from purchasing a gun?”
Under the Gun shows those being interviewed in nine seconds of silence.
