Another "Douchebag" Defamation Lawsuit Dismissed
A book, tastefully entitled "Hot Chicks with Douchebags," featured, well, pictures of what the authors deemed to fit that description. Not surprisingly, people identified as the latter took offense; at least two have sued for libel. The Smoking Gun (who else?) reports that an earlier suit was dismissed by a judge, and that a second suit has been voluntarily dismissed by the plaintiff. The opinion dismissing the prior suit is available here.
