Slanderous Web Site Catering to Teens Is Shut Down

Date: June 10, 2009
Authors: Donna St. George and Daniel de Vise
QUOTE: much of what was on the site was protected by the First Amendment's guarantee of free speech. Although slander and defamation are not protected by law, the comments were posted anonymously, making it difficult to take action. The site was closed down after Gansler's office made the case to the Web hosting company that the offensive material contained on the site violated the service agreement.
