In a decision with potentially large ramifications, New York Federal Judge LaShann DeArcy Hall won't dismiss a libel suit against "Shitty Media Men" creator Moira Donegan.
Explaining, the judge says it is possible that Donegan created the entry herself. The judge believes that Elliott should be able to explore whether the entry was fabricated. Accordingly, discovery proceeds, which will now put pressure on Google to respond to broad subpoena demands. The next motion stage could feature a high-stakes one about the reaches of CDA 230.
So, once again, I am giving up buying/acquiring new video games for Lent. “Play your backlog!”, is what I’m telling myself. Last year I *ALMOST* made it but Bioshock Infinite came out the week before Easter and I absolutely positively had to pick up my copy. Sigh. (I would have been better off daydreaming about how great it would have been…)
Anyhow, South Park came out today for Mardi Gras (laissez les bon temps rouler!) and tomorrow kicks off 40 days and 40 nights of chastity.
So… what are you giving up for Lent?
(Oh, yeah, I usually play another “I remember that!” song for these… hrm. Here’s this one.)
