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.
In my alter ego, I’m studying to be a priest in the Anglican Church. With The League’s permission, I’m posting a link to the audio of a sermon I gave recently at my home church.
The text of my sermon is The Book of Jonah. You can read that book–an excellent, four short chapters–here (in the search function type Jonah).
In related theological news, what would Thomas Aquinas make of this revelation?
