Moore wanted to sue Cohen in a defamation lawsuit after the comedian used a fake “pedophile detector” on him during the show ‘Who Is America?‘.
The case was dismissed on Tuesday by Judge John Cronan, who said the bit was “clearly a joke”. Cronan also stated that a consent form signed by Moore meant he had no grounds to sue.
According to Sky the Republican politician will appeal the decision.
‘Who Is America?‘ was a comedy series created by Sacha Baron Cohen in 2018. The Brit would adorn different disguises and personas in order to interact with people across America’s political and social spectrum.
