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.

Before the senate, Sen. Booker was mayor of Newark, NJ. His higher-profile moments in the Senate have come from his position on the Senate Judiciary Committee, a place he shares with fellow candidate Kamala Harris (D-CA), and potential candidate Amy Klobuchar (D-MN). He brought attention, and criticism, during the Kavanaugh hearings for declaring he was breaking committee rules on releasing information, calling it “about the closest I’ll probably ever have in my life to an ‘I am Spartacus’ moment.” We will see if 2020 proves to be a better moment for the senator.
