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.
Holy cow, is it Friday already?
Indeed it is.
I’m taking a 5-day weekend due to stuff like “having my 80 hours in by Wednesday Night” and “Ah, jeez. I need to study for my Security + test again.” So I’m spending this weekend studying and hitting all of the stuff like “oh, yeah… I remember warchalking” and “ah, jeez… I’m totally going to never remember the differences between 802.11b and 802.11g”.
So study, study, study, take a practice test, study, study, study.
The good news is that there are two breaks baked into the cake. On Saturday Night, we will go over to Dman’s for our biweekly gaming group and we’ll go back to playing Descent: Road to Legends.
On Sunday Night it is the GRANDADDY OF THEM ALL!!!! WRESTLEMANIA!!!! We’re going to have wings! And sides! And dessert! We’ve ruled that WrestleMania Meal is officially a cheat meal! (Though Sunday itself will *NOT* be a cheat day in its entirety. Just WrestleMania food.)
And then, on the last day of the five-day weekend, study study study, take the Security +, pass it or fail it, then, if I pass it, buy a bottle of wine and tell Maribou that she can dig up the copy of Crimson Peak I bought and asked her to hide and then maybe set up a date night with Maribou for the following weekend that involves celebration. And, if I fail it, just not talk about it as I study, study, study some more.
So… what’s on your docket?
