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.
Since I am getting on a plane this Sunday for the Week From Heck, I am going to do my darnest to finish up all of the chores I have so I can properly enjoy my flight without worrying. Stuff like taking the car in for the winter tune-up (we already did our pre-trip visits to the pet store and to Costco).
Heck, after the week I’ve had, I’m downright looking forward to going to the mechanic so I can sit in one of his comfy chairs with my 3DS and take a nap or three. Because, after that, I have to do stuff like “deliver Christmas presents to this group of people” and “deliver Christmas presents to that group of people” which is even more stressful than stuff like patch installs and writing reports on the patches you’ve installed.
When I was a kid, seriously, I did stuff like “go home from work and not think about work for 14ish hours”. What the heck happened?
So… what’s on your docket?
