BRUNSWICK COUNTY, NC (WWAY) -- A judge has rejected a Brunswick County judge's defamation claim against a political operative.
Judge Ola Lewis sued Edward Lee Rapp for defamation after he criticized her online for wearing a campaign button for another candidate last year.
Friday the judge who heard the case denied Lewis's motion for summary judgement, but allowed Rapp's motion to end the case. The ruling offers no reason for the decision.
Judge Lewis can appeal.
