Most recently, Kim and the Bradley team won summary judgment on behalf of Discovery Communications in a defamation suit brought by Dr. Judson Lovingood over his portrayal in a docudrama relating to the space shuttle Challenger disaster. The Eleventh Circuit recently affirmed the district court’s summary judgment decision (Lovingood v.
