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.
Holy cow, is tomorrow Friday already?
Indeed it is.
I moved out here my senior year of high school. (I’m not complaining, I’m just saying.) I made a handful of very close friends but, as I’m sure you can guess, they told me stories about the close friends I might have made had I moved there the year before or the year before.
Well, this Friday night, one of those close friends I might have made is in town at a local comedy club where he will be doing his stand-up comedy routine. Now, in general, I hate comedy. (This is probably an essay in itself.) Don’t get me wrong: I love witty wordplay, I enjoy when people tell jokes well, and slapstick is freakin’ awesome.
It’s stand-up that gets me all wrong. You have to be, like, Lenny Bruce level to make me say “Yes. *THAT* is how I will spend my evening.”
Or, I suppose, one of the friends I might have made had I moved earlier.
So… what’s on your docket?
