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.
Is This Wrong?
My school has uniforms. Female students have options that allow them to wear dresses/skirts or not to. However, for certain occasions, formal dress is required. This demands that the girls wear either a dress or a skirt. Boys are required to wear khakis.
This seems wrong to me. Forcing females to wear skirts and dresses just doesn’t sit right. Is it wrong? Is there something sexist at play?
(And, yes, I am tempted to ask about prohibitions on boys wearing skirts but think that is a different conversation for a different day.)
