Meghan Markle is making a request.
The Duchess of Sussex has asked a judge to decide on her legal case against Mail on Sunday rather than go to trial, People reported Wednesday (October 28).
Lawyers are also asking for the trial date to be pushed back as her team faces additional work after the recent inclusion of the book, Finding Freedom: Harry and Meghan and the Making of a Modern Royal Family, in the case.
The legal team will go to court in London on Thursday to argue “for a summary judgment rather than a full trial that is due to start on January 11.” Her legal team is making the application for a summary judgment because they are “confident in their case,” according to the report.
In September, Meghan lost a bid to stop a biography from being used as evidence in the lawsuit.
Meghan is suing the Mail on Sunday’s publishers Associated Newspapers for invasion of privacy, infringement of data protection rights and copyright infringement for printing extracts of a “private and confidential” letter sent to her father, Thomas Markle, in August of 2018.
