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.
Jeremy Corbyn and David Cameron won’t face each other in 2020 – but who will fall first?
This is not the only electoral parallel between the two men. In 2015, both achieved remarkable and unanticipated victories. Cameron won a parliamentary majority, an outcome he thought so improbable that he had not prepared a speech. Corbyn became Labour leader but it was a result he originally neither wanted nor expected. “Now we need to make sure I don’t win,” he had told supporters after he made the ballot.
Less than a year after their triumphs, both men’s crowns rest uneasily. As a result of Cameron’s pre-resignation last March, the pair will not face each other at a general election. The only question is: which of them will fall first?
