N.D. Ga.: Ripoff Report Gets Another 47 USC 230 Dismissal

Technology & Marketing Law Blog (Eric Goldman)
This is a run-of-the-mill lawsuit against the Ripoff Report by an unhappy vendor. Herman is a lawyer (once again, the dreaded lawyer-as-plaintiff) unhappy with a posted report from a client alleging bad service. . . This [granting of summary judgment for defendant Ripoff Report] is a super win for the Ripoff Report and another sign that courts just don't want to hear the plaintiff's arguments (no matter how creative/desperate) trying to put the Ripoff Report on the hook for user postings.
