Cup of Justice co-hosts Mandy Matney, Liz Farrell and Eric Bland — take a look at the lawsuit filed by Buster Murdaugh against documentary filmmakers and major networks, accusing them of defamation in their Stephen Smith reporting.

Eric gives a quick primer about what defamation is and what Buster is going to have to prove in the courtroom. Mandy and Liz talk about their observations of how the media handled the mentions of the Murdaugh name in the Smith investigation and what things looked like behind the scenes when film crews descended on the Lowcountry.

They also explore the biggest question of all: Will this case end up bringing much-needed answers in the Stephen Smith investigation?

Also on the show, what the Supreme Court’s decision to uphold a firearm ban for those accused of domestic violence will do for women and why it’s so hard to get women’s stories of abuse to be taken seriously.

Premium members get an extended discussion about how law enforcement handles domestic violence calls and what needs to change.
