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.
Bachelor Party Bleg
It’s Friday, so I’m drawing on the collective wisdom of the Internet to seek advice on a pretty trivial subject.
Namely: the Bachelor Party.
I’ve never planned one before, but I suspect that your typical pre-wedding binge is pretty simple: pick a few bars or a strip club and go to town. Unfortunately, I’m operating under certain constraints. In this case, the groom – whom I love dearly – is a bit of an introvert who generally shies away from raucous bar scenes. He’s a great guy, but we became friends because we debated together in college, not because he was some legendary party animal.
Which is fine. But I’d still like to put together something special and memorable to bookend his career as an eligible bachelor and celebrate the upcoming ceremonies. Does anyone have ideas for bachelor celebrations that don’t hinge on over-the-top partying? Suggestions specific to the DC area would be particularly helpful.
