Landmark Education LLC v. The Rick A. Ross Institute of New Jersey, Civil No. 04-3022 (D. N.J. case dropped Dec. 28, 2005).

Status: Dropped

Landmark Education, which describes itself as “a leader and innovator in the field of training and development,” sued “cult de-programmer” Rick Ross over statements on his website challenging the organization’s legitimacy, and his refusal to post Landmark’s response. But Landmark dropped its case after a New Jersey appeals court ruled in Donato v. Moldrow, 374 N.J. Super. 475 (App. Div. 2005) that a website operator is immune for suit for anonymous postings on the site, under section 230 of the federal Communications Decency Act.
