The long-running defamation case continues about a D Magazine article called “The Park Cities Welfare Queen,” most recently with the Fifth Court affirming the denial of the defendants’ summary-judgment motion: “There are multiple fact issues about whether Bender committed a crime by providing false or incomplete information to the HHSC to obtain thousands of dollars of SNAP benefits to which she was not entitled. Having reviewed the entire record, we conclude there is more than a scintilla of evidence that the gist of the Article is not substantially true.” D Magazine Partners LP v. Bender, No. No. 05-19-01525-CV (June 9, 2021) (mem. op.).
