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.
Well, this has been the week from heck, I tell you what. It’s been one of those wacky weeks where not only has everything that might have gone wrong gone wrong, but stuff like “co-worker gets bitten by poisonous spider” happens and that brings us to the level of chaos above and beyond anything you could have reasonably prepared for.
On top of that, my boss called me (AT HOME!!!!!!) to warn me that I might have to ruin my weekend as well by going into work at zero-dark-thirty on Saturday morning. Fun fun fun.
But I’m pretty sure that I have Saturday night to myself for gaming. And all day Sunday for laundry.
So… what’s on your docket?
