Milo v. Martin, No. _______ (Tex. Dist. Ct., Montgomery County, 284th Dist. dismissed Dec. 31, 2008).
Status: Summary judgment granted to defendant

Community activist Walter Milo Sr. and Rev. Anthony Shelton sued the editors of The Watchdog, a print and web publication focusing on local issues in Conroe, Tex., for comments posted in the bulletin board section of the publication’s web site referring to Shelton as a “pulpit pimp” and alleging that Milo committed a drug crime in 2005. The court dismissed the case on the grounds that the publication was immune from liability under section 230 of the Communication Decency Act. Rev. Shelton has vowed to appeal the dismissal.
