Fox News has taken a series of ugly blows of late, including a $787 million payout to Dominion, the firing of Tucker Carlson, the roughly $500 million stock market tumble it took as a result of that firing (from which it still hasn’t recovered), and the revelation that former producer Abby Grossberg has dozens of recordings of Fox executives. If Fox was looking for some good news today, it got the opposite.

Fox News now has been forced to agree to turn over additional evidence to Smartmatic, including documents relating to Rupert Murdoch and Lachlan Murdoch, per ABC News. Why does this matter? More incriminating evidence generally means greater odds of the plaintiff winning at trial, and winning big.

Smartmatic is still vowing to take this all the way to trial no matter what, instead of settling. We’ll see if that position holds true. The kicker is that some of the evidence Fox News is now being forced to turn over to Smartmatic is from the now-aborted Dominion trial. So if this goes to trial, we’ll end up seeing all the dirty laundry that Fox News may have been trying to keep buried by settling with Dominion.
