Many of you may remember the baseless lawsuit brought by a local elected official against the anonymous blogger orthomom. The elected official was upset because anonymous commenters on orthomom's blog called her a bigot. She bizarrely sued orthomom for defamation in what many believed to be a thinly disguised attempt to out orthomom and thereby silence her. A few hours ago, the judge ruled in favor of orthomom.
Mazel tov to orthomom and a special thanks to the group Public Citizen for providing orthomom with an attorney.
