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.
Trumwill’s Trek: Staid Sangamon
Since these are going on the front page now, I guess I’ll start having to add more than just the picture.
I had two pictures while in Sangamon. One with the truck, and one without it. Given that the truck is perhaps the most interesting thing in the picture, I decided to go with the one with the truck. Most of Sangamon is very, very boring. The interesting part – that huge city – we bypassed.
