Twitter Calls Tony LaRussa Frivolous; We Agree

| | Comments (3)

Those geniuses at Twitter took a break from turning America's short attention span into a damned Nigerian diamond mine to say that Tony LaRussa's people are big fat liars and they definitely aren't settling his lawsuit. They go even further by calling into question the ethics behind filing such a dumb lawsuit. Just like I did. From the Twitter editorial blog.

Reports this week that Twitter has settled a law suit and officially agreed to pay legal fees for an impersonation complaint that was taken care of by our support staff in accordance with our Terms are erroneous. Twitter has not settled, nor do we plan to settle or pay.

With due respect to the man and his notable work, Mr. La Russa's lawsuit was an unnecessary waste of judicial resources bordering on frivolous. Twitter's Terms of Service are fair and we believe will be upheld in a court that will ultimately dismiss Mr. La Russa's lawsuit.

Boom, rationalism. Twitter says what everyone knew. LaRussa told them to take the fake account out and they did. I'm no internet law scholar, but I don't know that there's any precedent in Twitter even having to do that. Him going to court with it was exactly what we called it: overmanaging. Good for Twitter not settling, now it's time for LaRussa just to pull the suit before going through the embarassment of having a judge throw it out for him.

I'm sure Tony's buddy Buzz Bizzinger is encouraging him to continue his lawsuit against the Internet.

That flowered shirt is not only frivolous, it's burning my retinas.

That's what you get for hitting your lawyer 8th instead of 9th.
