Tennessee: Defamation suit thrown out from 2009 Nashville recall

Here. According to the news reports: Pam Murray lost a recall election against Jamie Hollin for the District 5 Council seat back in 2009 by just two votes.
One year after her ouster, she sued Hollin and several of her former constituents for defamation. A judge ruled Monday that the statements made against Murray were protected by free speech. Hollin's lawyer says the lawsuit was bigger than the plaintiff and defendants.

Murray apparently held a job in Michigan while serving on the Council.
