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.
I picked up my copy of Endless Nights yesterday (I’ll put the Sandman Announcement post up on Wednesday night, don’t you worry), and discovered that we are now a Netflix Trial Household and we are figuring out whether we want to extend that trial indefinitely.
From famine to feast, in less than a week. Always awesome how that turns out.
Oh, and I’m still reading CISSP stuff. I’ll be kind and say that it’s an acquired taste… but, from what I’m told, it opens doors and (AND THIS IS THE POINT) this stuff can’t be outsourced. So I read yet another chapter about crypto. Ugh.
So… what are you reading and/or watching?
