Status: Settled (unknown terms)
Jeff Ward, who managed the careers of various entertainers including George Carlin, George Forman and Donna Summer, sued owner Luke Ford and various unnamed contributors to the lukeford.net porn-industry blog for allegedly libelous comments about Ward on the site. Ford did not respond to the suit, and was held in default on Oct. 10, 2005. After Ford filed a motion to set aside the default judgment, the parties settled and the case was dismissed in Aug. 2006.
