Vic Mignogna to Reportedly “Appeal Every Single Dismissed Cause of Action” in Dismissed Defamation Lawsuit

Vic Mignogna is reportedly set to file an appeal to the dismissal of all causes of action in his ongoing defamation lawsuit within 10-11 days.

Dragon Ball Super: Broly and JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: Diamond Is Unbreakable voice actor Vic Mignogna is allegedly set to appeal the rulings which dismissed all causes of action in the defamation lawsuit brought by Mignogna against Funimation, Jamie Marchi, Monica Rial and Ron Toye.

The announcement of Mignogna’s intent to appeal comes from lawyer and host of the YouTube channel Rekieta Law, Nick Rekieta.

According to Rekieta, in a video update posted to his channel, Mignogna is “going to appeal every single dismissed cause of action” within “ten or eleven days” [8:35 in the video below]:

Rekieta states:

“Mr. Mignogna, I’m told, is going to appeal every single dismissed cause of action. So, appeals are coming. They should be coming very soon. At the time of the recording of this video, I believe there’s something like ten or eleven days left to file that appeal, so we should see a document soon.”

Mignogna’s causes of actions were dismissed earlier this month by a court in Tarrant County, Texas, which found that the defendants’ statements were protected under the Texas Citizens Participation Act.

As of writing, the motion to appeal has yet to be filed by Mignogna or his legal team.
