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.
quote of the day
“The other day something occurred to me. When you are very young, people, particularly your parents, come up to you and say “What does the doggie say?”, “What does the kitty say?”, or “What does the cow say?” and so on. Eventually that stops.
However, much, much later in life something rather similar resumes. People start saying to you “What does your financial advisor say?”, “What does the cardiologist say?”, or “What does the rheumatologist say?”.
The circle of life, I guess.” ~ Dave Schuler
