DANGER ON THE NETS!
What do I have to say about libel/slander lawsuits especially as they pertain to the internet? A heck of a lot. Please note that a Writ of Summons (see “BREAKING NEWS” below), is not an actual lawsuit. It merely states that one may be filed and freezes the time frame for possible statute of limitation reasons.
A friend who called me to point out Harper’s filing also sent me a copy of a Judge’s Order dated March 30, 2011 dismissing Harper’s lawsuit against the Lancaster Bureau of Police in relation to the infamous incident at Franklin & Marshall College. The Judge took the opportunity to get a few digs in at Harper, but the case was dismissed primarily because Harper did not respond to the defendant’s very standard request that the Judge dismiss the case.
So tomorrow, I’ll have my say on the internet and lawsuits, threats to sue and playing a lawyer on the net.
Hopefully, I can also improve the appearance of the piece so it is readable. Argh!
Have a great Friday!
