GUEST,J BS: Pamela Greenbaum Sues Blogger Orthomom (86* d) RE: BS: Pamela Greenbaum Sues Blogger Orthomom 27 Feb 07


Sol you couldnt be more wrong about this. Mrs. Greenbaum (yes, a Jew) sought a court order directing Google to divulge the names of the blog authors(s) and offending posters in order to frame a libel complaint against the actual person or persons who posted libelous statements about her. Orthomom is not defending any suit right now although she may try to intervene and prevent what Google has, with the judge's guidance, already agreed to do. The Court documents are all posted at the OM blog if you dont believe me.

Your rights here at Mudcat are not threatened: the First Amendment does not protect and has never protected defamatory speech. Calling a Jew a bigot in the context of the Lawrence School Board could be libel per se - bloggers do not usually commit such gaffes even as they criticize individuals and discuss the issues of the day.
