She had earlier released pictures showing injuries the family said had been inflicted by Alhaddar.

Melania Trump, Daily Mail Spar Over Location Of Her Libel Lawsuit

The next first lady is challenging a "false" article about her journey to America, but the publication Trump is suing is contending she's in the wrong place.

The presidential election that resulted in Donald Trump's victory was unusual for a host of reasons. One of the many curious stories to appear related to whether his Slovene-born wife, Melania Trump, worked in the United States in the 1990s without a proper visa. Then came an even more bizarre story that connected Ms. Trump, a former model, to an escort agency. For that, Mail Media, parent company of the The Daily Mail, as well as a blogger named Webster Griffin Tarpley found themselves as defendants in a libel lawsuit.

The action was filed in Maryland, and now both sides are fighting over whether the lawsuit from Ms. Trump, who became a U.S. citizen a decade ago, really belongs in the state. Sometimes, jurisdiction is one of those dry procedural issues of law that glazes one's eyes. But this one deserves attention.
