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.
Now that I am back home and have to do laundry, laundry, and more laundry, I now have opportunities to finish (finally) the last episode of OITNB (I’ll see if I can’t put a post up about that entire show, because it’s got some very interesting stuff going on) and, last night at dinner, I read the opening to Small Gods… the part talking about turtles and eagles and I can’t help but suspect that he’s not talking about turtles or eagles at all.
So… what are you reading and/or watching?
