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.
League-fest 2013 Headcount!
It is clear that there is abundant interest to support going forward with League-fest 2013 in Chicago on June 7-9 this year. As a result, it is about time for me to block some rooms, ideally at one of the Hyatts downtown, which will run about $200-$250 a night. In order to allow me to figure out how many rooms I need to block, please reply below to indicate if you’re coming. Please only reply if it is a virtual certainty that you will be able to attend; if it is anything less than a virtual certainty and you want to respond anyways, please indicate that fact in your reply.
