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.
Gregarious co-worker decided that he wanted to have everybody on the team come over to his house to watch a movie.
His house is all the way out in the middle of nowhere and he has a barn that he occasionally converts to a movie theater with his projection television.
I knew that I was going to be doing stuff this weekend that involved a game night on Friday and the usual chores and errands and so I knew that I was likely to make a token appearance at the movie night, drop off some chips and dip or a bottle of something, say that I wished I could stay but, jeez, I can’t… and then leave.
But he said what the movie we’d be watching would be… and I said “Okay. I’ll stay for the movie.”
When I told Maribou about the co-worker’s movie night, she said that she’d come, so long as it was the token appearance thing… until I told her what the movie was and she brightened and said “Okay. I’ll stay for the movie.”
And so, as a fun game, I’m going to ask for a list of movies that would get, oh, 80% of everybody to move from “Okay… I guess I have a social obligation to do something like this” to “Oh… we’re watching that movie? Okay. I’ll stay for the movie.” Because I am pretty sure that there are more movies than the one that he announced that would get that response… but, golly, off the top of my head, I can’t think of another.
So those are the hints. It’s a movie that would get me to say that, it’s a movie that got Maribou to say that, and (I betcha), it’s a movie that would get 80% of you guys to say “Okay. I’ll stay for the movie.”
So… what were we watching?
