Blogger getting sued

A reader, probably looking for news of the blogger being sued by the Scientologists, ran across a September 23rd post to this blog in which I quote Dylan Tweney writing in his blog: “Thought experiment: What will happen to the free-and-easy culture of the blogosphere after the first weblogger (journalist or otherwise) gets sued for libel?”
As my reader points out, “A blogger is getting sued,” so Dylan’s thought experiment will now play out in the real world. K5 has the 411.
