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.
The Second Battle of Hoth
The Empire Strikes Back.. Despite an attempted coup against Emperor Klinsi, his newly appointed field general Deuce Vader leads the Empire to a hard-earned victory over the Costa Rican militia in the Second Battle of Hoth. Costa Rica is considering filing a formal protest with the Intergalactic Council. I can’t say that I blame them- they were ambushed without provocation while looking for a soccer game. Whatever that was last night, it sure as hell wasn’t soccer.
Edited to add: The Empire is believed to have had the assistance of a wampa.
