You probably know by now that Courtney Love got sued last March for alleged defamatory Tweets. The allegations are THE MOST OUTRAGEOUS that I have ever seen. I sure hope that they’re not true for Ms. Love’s sake.
Anyhow, here’s an update on the case: Opposing counsel (the attorney representing the plaintiff) has amended the complaint and filed a first amended complaint. Now, anyone who knows anything about litigation knows this is par for the course, i.e., there’s nothing unique about this. However, what is interesting is that counsel dropped two claims entirely.
The second claim which was dropped from the lawsuit was for intentional infliction of emotional distress. This really boggles my mind. If ever there was a case for an emotional distress claim, this would be the one.
I can probably venture a couple of guesses why counsel decided to drop the emotional distress claim, but that would boring. Instead, I’d like to know what you think.
Why do you think the designer’s lawyer dropped the emotional distress claim from the lawsuit?
