Status: Dismissed
Pennsylvania State Senator Vincent Fumo sued the owner of the (now defunct) web site dumpfumo.com after she posted to her site the verbatim text of an article from the Philadelphia Daily News, which he alleged was libelous. The motions judge granted defendant's motion to dismiss on the grounds that the suit was barred by section 230 of the federal Communications Decency Act; the Common Pleas judge agreed and affirmed.
