Abusive libel suits: one ends, another threatened

Dan Snyder dismisses his libel suit against Washington City Paper over a story he hadn't read that dared to criticize him. Washington City Paper did not recover its attorneys' fees, but one presumes that the credible threat of doing so under anti-SLAPP laws helped Snyder come to the decision to dismiss the suit earlier rather than later; both sides claim victory.

Meanwhile, blogger Amy Alkon wrote about an intrusive TSA search; the TSA agent has demanded $500,000 to settle a potential libel action. Marc Randazza is on the case defending her First Amendment rights.
