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.
Did anyone see that hockey game?

Holy crap, was that some amazingly exciting hockey. And I’m rarely all that excited by hockey. I won’t say what happened, as I think it replays tonight, but suffice to say, go ahead and watch the replay. When you have a rooting interest there’s nothing like a really good hockey game. The men’s semis & medal games should be something to see.
