Courtney Love Will Pay Dawn Simorangkir $430,000 Plus Interest To Settle Lawsuit

Courtney Love is settling that Twitter defamation lawsuit. She will pay designer Dawn Simorangkir $430,000 plus interest over those tweets she made in 2009 that Ms. Simorangkir says defamed her. While Ms. Simorangkir's lawyer maintained that the settlement shows that defamation law is defamation law no matter what the forum, Ms. Love's attorney commented that the matter boiled down to one of dollars, and that both parties realized the case would be expensive to try. More coverage here from UPI.com and here from The Hollywood Reporter.
