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 tomorrow Friday already?
Indeed it is.
Summer is officially winding down. When I was a kid, we would not have been going back to school for another week, maybe two, but my facebook is full of pictures of kids with their “FIRST DAY OF SCHOOL!” pictures.
Don’t get me wrong: we’re still talking about how hot it is and we’re nowhere *NEAR* talking about getting the hoodies out of the back of the closet.
We are, however, a lot nearer to talking about there being snow on the peak again. Once that happens? We can see if Summerslam happened yet. If Summerslam has already happened, then… then we get to say “Summer is officially over.”
Summerslam hasn’t happened yet, though. Next weekend.
*THIS* weekend is going to be one of those full weekends. The pet stores. The grocery store. A trip to Costco. Oh, and if you’re driving past Whole Foods, pick up some of those apples. *PLUS* gaming on Saturday night.
And soon Maribou and I will have to get used to new schedules again. Currently, our schedules overlap and we get off work at more or less the same time. Soon, she’ll go back to living without an alarm clock and I’ll go back to having 2-3 hours by myself every evening before I go and pick her up from work.
And that will be weird.
So this weekend is one of the last of the old normal ones before we shift into the new normal. Kinda looking forward to that.
So… what’s on your docket?
