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.
By the way, I saw Star Trek this past weekend and it was great fun. I’m not a big Trek fan – though I loved some of the old movies when I was a kid – but this movie was sheer entertainment and you didn’t really need to be a fan to appreciate it, though I know fans who did.
Good cast, funny script. Nothing I’d watch over and over again, but a good flick all around. I suppose since I’m not a Trekkie maybe I don’t share the same concerns that others do regarding the future of the series, so I say, go see it – on the big screen.
