Ottawa Times Blogger Lawsuit Moves Ahead

Posted by wlpo on November 15, 2010

A defamation lawsuit involving a blogger on the Ottawa Times website now involves an actual person being sued.

Attorney George Hupp has filed a motion to amend a lawsuit filed by Don and Janet Maxon to claim that Carol Miller of Ottawa is the blogger known as “Fabfive” who claimed the Maxon’s tried to bribe city officials into supporting a bed and breakfast.  Hupp says he also is looking to add “John Does” as other possible defendants.

Miller gave a deposition recently in the case.  Internet Company AOL has also told Hupp they’ll cooperate and give out e-mail information.

Judge James Lanuti will hear the Maxon’s amended lawsuit on December 1st.
