Citywide Sewer & Drain Service Corp. v. Carusone, No. 18160/2005 (N.Y. Sup. Ct., Nassau County dismissed Sept. 18, 2006).
Status: Summary judgment granted to defendant.

On Oct. 13, 2005, WPIX-TV in New York broadcast a consumer report focused on complaints against Citywide Sewer & Drain Service Corp. The next day, defendant Angelo Carusone – whose father had worked for the company, and himself had had a summer job there – posted an item titled “Citywide really is shitywide” on his blog (, now dormant), which repeated the allegations of the WPIX report. The company sued Carusone and his father for libel. A defense motion for summary judgment was granted on Sept. 18, 2006.
