Shoe Leather Journalism

My podcasting partner Stacy McCain and I plan to be in Charlottesville tomorrow to cover the motions hearing in the Gilmore v. Jones, et al. defamation LOLsuit. Brennan Gilmore, the person who made the cell phone video of a car ramming into a crowd and killing a woman during the Charlottesville riot, is suing Alex Jones and a random collection of bloggers, claiming that they are somehow responsible for alleged harassment done by third parties. While the hearing will deal with motions to dismiss, the judge has deferred consideration of the award of costs and attorneys’ fees pursuant to any applicable anti-SLAPP statutes and consideration of sanctions for now.
