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.
Having returned from Tampa and visiting dear friends and relations, and having girded one’s loins for the upcoming Holiday Celebrations, we hunker down this weekend to pre-emptively recuperate (precuperate?) from the days and weeks ahead of us.
As such, I look forward to getting the Whole Foods stuff I need to catch up on, getting the PetsMart stuff I need to catch up on, hammering out whether I need to go to Safeway or King Soopers for the various things that the other store just doesn’t carry (pretty sure it’s Safeway), and maybe stopping by the pet store that has those catnip toys that make the kitties yell loudly and then flop over on their sides with an audible “thump” before rabbit kicking the heck out of something.
Perhaps I will attempt to hit Maribou up for a date and take her out to that dinosaur movie that looks like it’d be a half-decent date movie… and then we can go out for a sandwich or something and discuss the various people who will require various gifts and delineate the various rules that will regulate said gift purchases. I mean, if I had an unlimited budget, I could finally get that Death Star…
In any case, it will be good to have a weekend where we are discussing what we have the opportunity to do rather than maybe have enough time to discuss what we’d be doing in the following weekend once all of the events of the weekend have transpired.
So… what’s on your docket?
