CHICAGO JUDGE TOSSES TWITTER LAWSUIT
A lawsuit growing out of a Twitter post has been tossed by a Cook County judge. Last summer Uptown resident Amanda Bonnen filed a Twitter post commenting on her “moldy apartment”. Her landlord, Horizon Management Group Realty LLC got wind of the tweet and filed a libel lawsuit against her.
Bonnen’s attorney, Leslie Ann Reis argued that the comments in the Twitter post were simply Bonnen’s opinions. Judge Diane Larsen agreed, noting that “The Court finds the tween non-actionable as a matter of law.” Congrats to Bonnen and Ms. Reis.
