Shy Lawsuit Dismissed

New, 8 comments

Last month, downtown developer Barry Shy sued two residents one resident in his own SB Grand building, accusing the party (who runs the site Truedowntown.com, an "expose" site about Shy) of slander and libel. Now comes word that a judge has thrown out the suit, ruling that the defendant is protected under the First Amendment. Additionally, Shy must now pay all of the defendant's legal fees. Bad day for Barry. [Blogdowntown]
