A lawyer for The New York Times argued in federal court that the paper's editorial blaming Sarah Palin for a 2011 shooting of a congresswoman was "an honest mistake," the New York Post reports.

Further, The Times argued to Manhattan federal Judge Jed Rakoff that there was an absence of malice in the editorial that linked Palin to the mass shooting 6 years ago in Phoenix that nearly killed Congresswoman Gabby Giffords, the NY Daily News reports.

Jared Lee Loughner killed six in the shooting.

"There was an honest mistake in posting the editorial," The Times' attorney argued Friday, the Daily News reported. "It was corrected within 12 to 13 hours."

Palin filed suit in late June.

The Times is moving for a dismissal of the lawsuit, which will be heard July 31, the NY Daily News reported. If it is not dismissed, the trial will begin Dec. 11.
