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.
The View from my Wife’s Lens
[Chris] The View from Your Window today at Sullivan’s digs is a photo my lovely wife took on our honeymoon.
We stayed in a well constructed wood hut. The very cool owners had a parrot who took a liking to me so he would hang out (very early in the morning) outside our hut and say, “Hello” like 90,000x in a row, which my poor wife didn’t really go for. But he started by the third day to hang on my shoulder (very rarely) so I got into this whole pirate thing-identity. Given it was the Caribbean–arrrh–it actually had historic relevance.
