Win, Plaintiffs, Win!

U.S. Internet defamation suit tests online anonymity

It bills itself as the world’s “most prestigious college discussion board,” giving a glimpse into law school admissions policies, post-graduate social networking and the hiring practices of major law firms.

But the AudoAdmit site, widely used by law students for information on schools and firms, is also known as a venue for racist and sexist remarks and career-damaging rumors.

Now it’s at the heart of a defamation lawsuit that legal experts say could test the anonymity of the Internet.

I hope the plaintiffs win. One specific site had better hope the plaintiffs lose. That’s all I’ll say.
