Per TMZ, Meghan Markle and her team are not giving this lawsuit much consideration. Meghan’s lawyer Michael Kump called the move “baseless and absurd,” and “just a continuation of a pattern of disturbing behavior.” The legal team added that they would give the matter “the minimum attention necessary, which it deserves.”
