Preppy Plaintiff

Popped collars, it seems, have consequences that at least one fashion victim is unwilling to bear. Michael Minelli has reportedly sued the author of "Hot Chicks With Douchebags" for featuring a photograph of him. The photo and accompanying derisive prose, Minelli complains, have exposed him to "hatred, contempt and humiliation" at the hands of friends and coworkers. Truth is a defense to a charge of libel, so some patriotic jury might have to determine whether Minelli is, in fact, a douche bag.
