Devin Nunes lawsuits
Nunes has been in the spotlight after filing multiple lawsuits characterized as Strategic Lawsuits Against Public Participation (“SLAPP”). Experts have described the lawsuits as “unlikely to succeed” and “virtually free of merit”.
On March 18, 2019, Nunes filed a defamation lawsuit against Twitter, Elizabeth “Liz” Mair, Mair Strategies LLC, and the Twitter accounts, “Devin Nunes’s Mom” (@DevinNunesMom) and “Devin Nunes’s Cow” (@DevinCow), seeking $250 million in damages. As the story went viral, the popularity of the defendants’ accounts soared, gaining more followers than Nunes’s own account.

A filing to quash a subpoena argued that “no reasonable person would believe that Devin Nunes’s cow actually has a Twitter account” as cows “do not have the intelligence, language, or opposable digits needed to operate a Twitter account”. On June 24, 2020, a judge ruled that Twitter was immune from Nunes’s suit because of Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act.
