Indiana school district drops own frivolous lawsuit against AIM

July 18, 2023

By Accuracy in Media Staff

Indiana’s Martinsville Public Schools dropped its own lawsuit against Accuracy in Media for the undercover investigation we conducted exposing CRT in their schools. 

The district, which filed a baseless lawsuit against Accuracy in Media for defamation, just dismissed its own lawsuit without prejudice. Decades of very clear precedent indicate that government entities cannot sue for defamation and that AIM’s exclusive content is protected under the First Amendment. It seems the district’s lawyers agreed after some reflection on the vapid claims and many tax dollars spent.

Even the highest-ranked attorney in the state agreed. Indiana Attorney General Todd Rokita tweeted about our investigation nearly a dozen times, calling out prominent journalists and the state’s major media for ignoring our findings and claiming that CRT is not taught in their schools.

“It’s been almost 2 months since @AccuracyInMedia released their video exposing Indiana’s public schools for teaching children CRT. Administrators were put on leave in the aftermath. Where is our state media? They simply never covered this.”



Accuracy in Media uses investigative journalism and citizen activism to expose media bias, corruption and public policy failings. Progressives and their allies in the newsroom have a stronghold over the mainstream media in this country, but they aren’t stopping there.

They are targeting our education system, Big Tech, the entertainment industry — every facet of America’s culture.

To fight back against the overbearing control they have of our society, you and I must take action now.
