Jawort v. Gideon Knox, LLC, et al.

In May 2021, the Montana Daily Gazette, a publication of the Gideon Knox Group, posted an article attacking and defaming Plaintiff Adrian Jawort, a lobbyist for Montana Native Voice. While the article is largely an anti-trans tirade, Adrian objected only to a false statement about her conduct in the Montana Capitol. Adrian asked the author of the article, Jordan "J.D." Hall, to remove the false statement and he refused.
