In any event, here is one of my more recent ones that I really enjoyed researching. It involves a case out of New York that concluded a news organization could be liable for a privacy lawsuit when it posted a picture of an aspiring lawyer (incorrectly) claiming that she was the younger sister of Kimora Lee Simmons.
The aspiring lawyer sued the news organization and another news organization that had debunked the story for violating her right to privacy under New York law. The court concluded that the incorrect story was so "riddled with fiction" that it didn't qualify for a newsworthiness exception. But, the news organization that got the story right did qualify for the exception. So what is the moral of the story? If you post a picture of a person online, you better make sure that the accompanying story of that person is factually accurate, especially if you use the person's name.
These types of online defamation and privacy claims are quickly becoming my favorite type of lawsuits to research. And luckily for me, these lawsuits continue to rise with the rise of social media.
