Blake Shelton's Tabloid Lawsuit Moving Forward After Judge's Ruling

(Radio.com) Blake Shelton won the latest round in his defamation lawsuit against Bauer Publishing and In Touch magazine, after a judge denied the magazine's attempt to have the case dismissed on Tuesday (April 19th).

The country music star filed the lawsuit against the magazine for a September cover story that alleged his drinking led to his divorce from Miranda Lambert and that he was headed to rehab.

Judge Christina A. Snyder denied the magazine's motion to strike the singer's suit under California's anti-SLAPP statute (which defends expressions of free speech from meritless lawsuits), according to The Hollywood Reporter.

"A reasonable person viewing the In Touch headlines and sub-headlines -- which were located 30 pages away from the Article -- might well have concluded that Shelton had, in fact, entered 'REHAB' after 'his friends begged him to stop joking about drinking and get help,'" Snyder wrote.
