Vazquez v. Buhl

Conn. App.: No liability for linking to — and praising — allegedly defamatory article
Washington Post (Volokh Conspiracy)
The Connecticut court concluded that NBC was acting as a “provider … of an interactive service,” that the linked-to-article was “information provided by another information content provider [Buhl]” (even in the absence of evidence that Buhl had deliberately submitted it to NBC or Carney), and that therefore NBC couldn’t be “treated as the publisher or speaker” of such information for libel purposes.
Opinion: Vazquez v. Buhl et al.
