ATF Agent John Dodson Suing Time Over Fast and Furious Article

John Dodson

John Dodson, the special agent who blew the whistle on the Fast and Furious gunwalking scandal, is suing Time for libel, POLITICO has learned.

The lawsuit comes in response to a Fortune magazine article published in June that asserted Dodson had complained about the gunwalking in part because it was his fault guns had been intercepted, and because of a longstanding personal grudge with the ATF supervisor who had been tasked with overseeing the Fast and Furious operation. The article’s principle thesis is that the ATF “never intentionally allowed guns to fall into the hands of Mexican drug cartels.”

The lawsuit, “for an amount in excess of $75,000.00,” calls the article “fictitious in the sense that it contains facts that Defendant [Time Inc., which owns Fortune] knew to be false prior to publication.” It also charges Time with being “negligent, grossly negligent, willful and wanton” and says it “purposely avoided the truth” by failing to interview Dodson. The summons was issued on Oct. 15.
