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.
Float, goddamn you.
I have mentioned previously that my father grew up in Jersey City, the son of Irish immigrants; that he was a Marine Corps officer; a surfer; and a doctor, now retired. I have not told you that he is also a painter.
The above Float, goddmamn you. is more whimsical than most of his canvases, but is characteristic in the use of color, brush technique, and composition.
When I was about nine my father started taking macrame courses. This struck me and my sister as odd, like a scene in a movie where one of the characters is later revealed to have a brain tumor. He moved from macrame to stained glass, and then settled on painting, which he has done steadily now for nearly 40 years, producing hundreds, if not thousands of works.
Float, goddamn you. is currently on exhibition at the San Diego Art Institute in Balboa Park in San Diego, California.
