Courtney Love's Twitter Lawsuit Rolls On

Courtney-love Courtney Love's motion to dismiss her Twitter defamation lawsuit was denied earlier this week.  You remember this one right?

She went ballistic on Twitter and attacked fashion designer Dawn Simorangki with such classic tweets as "Oi vey don't fuck with my wardrobe or you will end up in a circle of scorched earth hunted 'til your dead."  The tweets are attached to the complaint. 

Courtney was apparently angry because she didn't like that she was expected to pay for clothes that the designer designed for her after Courtney "discovered her" on Etsy.  As a parent, what a lovely example she is setting for her daughter.  I like to teach my child that we pay for the things we buy.

She is being sued for defamation, and is the first celebrity to be sued for something that happened on Twitter.  What a claim to fame that is!

Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Aurelio Munoz on Monday rejected arguments by Love's attorneys that the lawsuit infringed on her right to free speech. Munoz said the statements Love made were not issues of public interest and that Simorangkir has a good chance of winning her case.

Love's lawyer, Olaf Muller, argued his client's remarks were matters of consumer interest because they were an attempt to warn others who might deal online with Simorangkir.

Courtney plans to appeal.  A better course of action may be to write her a check and make this just go away.

Oh, Courtney. I loved her so much back in the 90's. What happened?

Funny, though, I was thinking how pretty she looks in that second picture compared to most recent photos of her, then I scrolled down and now I'm all, "ahh! Nipples! Get that woman a bra!"

& Also: WTF is on her chin in that first photo? It looks like spagetti sauce. What a train-wreck.
