Judge: Nancy Grace should face wrongful death lawsuit in federal court

Excerpts from the Star Banner:

OCALA - A federal judge ruled Monday that the civil lawsuit between Melinda Duckett's family and the Nancy Grace camp will be tried in federal court.

In an order, U.S. Magistrate Judge Gary R. Jones ruled that, because the parties involved reside in different jurisdictions, federal court would be the appropriate venue to handle the trial. Jones also dismissed Melinda's ex-husband, Joshua Duckett, from the lawsuit, stating that her estate fraudulently put him on the lawsuit in hopes of arguing that more than one party lived in Lake County, where the case was originally filed.
