On Tuesday, Jim Denning, majority leader of the Kansas Senate, lost the second of two lawsuits against columnist Steve Rose and the Kansas City Star, alleging the two had defamed his character.

At issue was a column by the longtime and now former journalist Rose for taking Denning to task for opposing the expansion of Medicaid in Kansas.

District Judge Paul Gurney said he could find no intended malice in Rose’s report, nor in its host publication, The Kansas City Star, on which Gurney ruled earlier in the summer.
