Blogging is being taken seriously by the legal system. Here is a lawsuit about libel and defamation. Last week U.S. District Judge William Bertelsman ordered TheDirty.com to pay $1 million in compensatory and $10 million in punitive damages. That latter was because, reports Bruce Carton in LEGAL BLOG WATCH, the gossip blog had not responded to a lawsuit filed against it last February by Cincinnati Bengals cheerleader Sarah Jones.
