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.
Presidential Debate LeagueCast
The League will have another video discussion tonight, almost immediately following the Presidential debate. For now, here’s the raw video of our chat. You’ll want to bear with us as the video starts while there’s still several minutes of the debate left. But we wound up having a very good discussion that kept moving forward nicely and I think did a good job of deconstructing (mostly) the policy planks offered by both candidates.
Certainly, the discussion was smarter than what you got on the 24-hour cable news channels, although I admit that’s not setting the bar very high.
Special thanks to guest panelist Owen and everyone who wore a tie in recognition of the formality of the debate. I, for one, will look forward to the next LeagueCast!
Nob, you’ll have to wait for the next one to escalate your futbol-inspired animosity with my favorite jersey, more offensive to you surely than A.C. Milan. This one required that I wear my stars-and-stripes tie which knotted too narrowly.
