Arianna Huffington Gets Sued…Again

Filed under: Legal MattersMedia Minute

arianna huffington gets sued again

She is NOT making many friends lately.

Last month, we learned that bloggers were filing a class action lawsuit against AOL & Huffington Post, because the HuffPost contributing writers feel that they should receive fair compensation for their content.

Now, Arianna Huffington is being sued by political consultants Peter Daou and James Boyce "for failing to acknowledge what they claim was their critical role in the creation of the Huffington Post."

They first filed their lawsuit back in November, but it looks like they've still got a ways to go with this fight.

There's a long history between these three, but if you watch the film The Social Network, you'll get the basic idea of what happened. LOLz.

After all these recent claims against Arianna Huffington, what do U think of the woman? Is she truly mistreating everybody? Or are these people just looking for payouts?

Internet Dramz! Bloggers Sue AOL And Huffington Post

bloggers file lawsuit against aol and huffington post

Bloggers are NOT happy with Arianna Huffington!

Today, Freelance journalist Jonathan Tasini filed a class action lawsuit against AOL & Huffington Post, on behalf of a group of bloggers who claim that HuffPost "mistreats those who enrich it with content."

After AOL acquired Huffington Post for $315 million last month, contributing writers feel that they should receive fair compensation for their content, and they're claiming "mistreatment" by Arianna Huffington.

Here's what the complaint against Huffington says:

"If it were not for the labor of Plaintiff and the thousands of unpaid Class members on and for TheHuffingtonPost.com…[the site] would not have been an attractive merger target and would have sold for at least $105 million less than the merger price of $315 million."

HuffPost is referring to the class action lawsuit as "completely baseless."

Who do U side with? Team Bloggers or Team HuffPost?
