I’ve been researching the complaint filed in the Gilmore v. Jones, et al. shutuppery LOLsuit filed in the Western District of Virginia. IANAL, but it seems to be chock-full of many of the defects of law and logic found in Bill Schmalfeldt’s LOLsuits.
On its face, this appears to be basically a tort suit for defamation rather than a civil rights matter. Yet, it has been filed by lawyers from the Civil Rights Clinic of the Georgetown University Law Center (the law school at that university). Why, I wonder, would these lawyers file an apparently SLAPP-like suit? One would think that civil rights lawyers would be standing up for the First Amendment and defending this suit instead.
Curiouser and curiouser.
