Dugas v. Robbins, No. CA 2008-491 (Mass. Super., Barnstable County filed July 7, 2008).

Status: Pending.

Peter Robbins, who writes the “Robbins Report” blog on the CapeCod.com community web site (www.capecodtoday.com/blogs/index.php/Robbins), was sued by an individual whom he criticized on his blog as being opposed to the dredging on Barnstable Harbor, saying that a suit brought by Joseph F. Dugas and other residents was “frivolous” and “malicious.” Robbins also criticized Dugas’ attorney, Paul Revere III. Dugas and Revere both sued Robbins and an anonymous commenter on the blog for libel. A defense motion to dismiss the case under Massaschusetts’ anti-SLAPP law was denied in November 2008.
