Statute of Limitations Saves Wonkette from Trial

AP reports that Ana Marie Cox of Wonkette fame is no longer part of the Washingtonienne law suit. Cox argued that blogs should not be liable for the material they reprint. The court did not address that argument. Instead because the statute of limitations required adding her within one year and she was added more than two years after the events occurred, the court dismissed her from the case on those grounds. The case’s other questions regarding what privacy one has when someone decides to share intimate details (yes sex life details for those who have not followed this case) on a blog may see a court ruling if the case does not settle.
