In 2023, Jordan and a team from Susman Godfrey secured a historic $787.5 million deal to resolve Dominion Voting System’s massive defamation lawsuit against Fox news Network, on the very day a jury trial was to commence in Delaware Superior Court.

A key member of the legal team, Jordan led efforts in deposing several Fox News hosts and producers. He also successfully argued several discovery motions and drafted numerous discovery motions that uncovered critical Fox News and Fox Corp. emails and text messages.
